Need help overclocking. Total Newbe

Hi guys, First of all a big thanks to all you helping selecting the parts for my rig. Some of the parts i could not get in au, so i just got alternatives in that case. Now the system is up an running, everything is fine so far and i am ready for the next challenge i.e. overclocking. I am a total newbe to that. i got no idea where to start and what to do, however if guys could please help, we can make it happen. I am looking upto a safe mode possibly 3.8ghz as many say it is a sweet spot for 920. Dont wanna touch the ram, only cpu coz i am afraid touching ram could upset ram voltages and that in result could burn my cpu. intel says it should be under1.65v and i am already on border. (do i know what i am talking about???)

PLEASE I need step by step instructions in plain english. i am online all night for that.

Thanks in advance.
