You can go to here -> It talks about how to OC the 4200+.

I had that chip, but because it's multiplier is locked, I was limited in how I could overclock it. Plus, my memory was not the best so increasing the FSB and such resulted in the system not booting.

I've since upgraded to a Phenom II X3 720 BE and boy, am I happy!
