Why do you need to, is the pc slow or something ?

With a stock fan, I would advise against it.

Honestly your better off not trying to Oc that chip
Why not invest in 4GB of some good ram and up your GPU and PSU depending what you select

that would at least add some gump to your system but overclocking will not help you

Glad to see someone already commented, just don't do it. Unless you have a 10 year old mobo, or really badly trying to learn something, you're wasting time, effort, and most certainly will ruin your tech.

OC'ing generates heat, you need to address that with fans/heatsinks. Adding memory, better gpu or tuning the system configuration can give better performance without adding heat.

Does your mobo even support OC'ing?

Go into your motherboard's options by pressing whichever key it tells you when your turn your computer on. If you cannot locate a category that allows you to OC then that's self-explanatory.
