Evga nforce 750I overclocking core duo 2.8
Does anyone have configuration details on overclocking a core 2 duo on a evga nforce 750I maotherboard? Thanks in advance for any possible info.
I don't know what the rest of your configuration is, so here's my set of links and comments. Use what you need.
This should be your first stop.

This should be your second stop. You need to know something about thermal management or you can fry your CPU. It's actually kind of difficult to fry a modern CPU, but it is possible.

Third stop will be a guide for your particular motherboard. Google is your friend.
You will need better cooling. Here are two under $50 heatsinks that are pretty popular:

They both require a somewhat different approach to applying thermal compound.

And they are pretty large, so they might not fit inside your case.
And here's a good budget cooler:

Go through the first two threads. Do not do anything until you have a good idea about what you are trying to do. Once you have definite questions (you will, you will ), come back and ask.
Keep in mind that these are guides, not cookbooks. YMMV. Your Mileage May Vary. Because of all the variables, you may not do as well as someone else with a similar system. Or you might do better.
