Overclocking beginner..need advice plz

Hey guys I have a few question about overclocking, mainly where do I start? My rig is as fellows

amd phemon x3 720 BE
asus m4a89gtd pro
hyper tx3 cooler
antec earthwatts 500w 80+
Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 4GB 1333
onboard vid.

I unlocked the 4th core on cpu and ran prime95 @stock speed for almost 11 hrs with 0 errors/warnings, is it safe to say it’s a stable core?

I’m interested in getting overall improved performance, I know there are various settings I can adjust..
NB multiplier
HT multiplier
Clock speed
Cpu multiplier
So what settings should I adjust first? Should I try overclocking on 3 or 4 cores? Should I try overclocking each core separately?

Any help would be greatly appreciated… thanks in advance
