This should be your first stop.
HOWTO: Overclock C2Q (Quads) and C2D (Duals) - Guide v1.6.1
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/240001-29-howto-overc...

Next stop should be a guide for your particular motherboard. Google is your friend.

Go through the guides. Then go into the BIOS and change the System Memory Multiplier (or whatever your BIOS calls it) from AUTO to 2.00, 2.00B, or 2.00D - whichever you need to set the Memory Frequency to twice the FSB. Then when you increase the FSB, the memory clock will rise in step with it. If you are at stock speed, your FSB should be 200 MHz and your memory clock should be at 400 MHz.

For a serious overclock, you will need better than stock cooling. This is pretty popular:
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus

One good thing about the Hyper is that it has enough mounting hardware that you can take it to your next build.

my E2160 has such low temps when I OC it using a stock cooler (need to reapply with a better thermal paste though..)
from 1.8ghz to 2.62 ghz.. :D 
running full load @ <45*C, v core: 1.525V

Read an overclocking guide and don't use the stock cooler. My E2200 on the spare machine runs pretty warm with the stock cooler when I stress test it. Then again it's in a case with only one case fan ^_^. But yeah, if you want to overclock use something better than the stock fan.

pentium dual core series dont actually require aftermarket cooler, if you have mobo with better stability and northbridge, temperatures are usually fine. I am OCing my E5200 to 4ghz on 1.4v and temps are almost same only 4,5 Celsius change in idle , full load is about same.
