What are your current cpu temperatures? Check with cpuid hwmonitor or asus ai suite if you have an asus motherboard.

Forgot you add it will help if we know your idle temps and load temps so run something that stresses your cpu (a game or prime95) and see how high the temp gets.

idle temps is 26~30 then running prime95 on the max stress setting thing its only go to 45~48

Ok well you should be able to get anywhere between 3.8ghz-4.2ghz (im at 3.8ghz) You dont want your temps to go near 70c under load.

Great guide here if you want to overclock

It would also help if you post the rest of your system specs including power supply so other people can help.
