Help overclocking my core 2 duo using nvidia control panel

i have a core 2 duo 3ghz stock. i wanted to overclock it using the nvidia control panel however i dont know what i am doing and i didnt want to pretend i did because its not worth my whole computer dying. i have watched a couple videos that were kinda general. i was looking for specific step-by-step instructions but any help is greatly appreciated. im not looking for anything drastic but i was hoping that a small overclock in my gpu and cpu would give me a couple extra fps in my games and maby increasing the fan speed would keep the components cool as well. thank you

  1. If you do not know what you're doing do some READING. There are like a million topics on this forum alone on how to overclock.

    I would suggest overclocking via bios settings on not in the nvidia control panel also. I used the control panel once and it was always unstable and randomly change settings without me knowing. Seriously.. overclock via bios.
