Overclocking for newbies?

Hey guys,

I wanted to OC my 2.4ghz Q6600 to a meager 2.6ghz just for a little extra oomph.

However, I have literally no clue how to do it. I was going to try and start and then my friend started mentioning RAM timings and all sorts of hub-bub and I was just like.. floored. Can anyone help me out here?

I'm using an Asus P5N-E SLI mobo if it helps anyone know the BIOS.

Hmm, all those links just say about how it doesn't exist anymore.

Hopefully it's a simple process, I wish it was as easy as ATI makes it to OC with the CCC.

A G0 stepping Q6600 should be able to run at 3.0 GHz (333 MHz X 9) with little or no voltage increase.
