30 C is obviously CPU temp at idle. Your load temps are what is important.

This should be your first stop.
HOWTO: Overclock C2Q (Quads) and C2D (Duals) - Guide v1.6.1

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

Use a stress testing program such as Prime95 to put a 100% load on the CPU. This will do two things. It will maximize your CPU temperatures and it will test your CPU at the higher speed, voltage, and temperature.

Keep your core voltage under 1.45 volts and your load temps under 70 C.

while waiting for someone to respond i did find this on another website how to overclock with my motherboard
And sorry i didn't know that the idle temp didn't matter.

But my core 1 temp is 38 C
Core 2 is 27 C

AI Overclock Tuner=manual
FSB Frequency=280
PCIE Frequency=100
DRAM Frequency=842 --set proper value for your ram
DRAM Static Read Control=disabled
DRAM Read Training=disabled
AI Clock Twister=strong --you try moderate first
AI Transaction Booster=manual
Common Performance Level=5 --you try 7 or more first
Pull-In of CHA/B PH/1/2/3/4=all enabled
CPU Voltage=1.25
FSB Termination Voltage=1.1
Memory Voltage=2.1 --set proper value for your ram
North Bridge Voltage=1.2
Load-Line Calibration=enabled
CPU Spread Spectrum=disabled

I tried it and it worked but isn't really speed I'm looking for.
So tried changing the numbers around based

little but my computer wouldn't start back up (i have it fixed)

So what i am asking now is i need help getting the right numbers for my to get my Cpu around 3.60Ghz.

I have two ram sticks of
