Motherboard:The brand is pheonix and it is i945G chipset based.
RAM:2GB DDR2 @533MHz
Graphics:XFX ATI Radeon HD 4350

I dont have any market cooler.I have intel's stock cooler.There's a small fan in my case.

Are you sure the motherboard brand is "pheonix", or is that the Phoenix BIOS that you are talking about?

This should be your first stop.
Core2 Overclocking Guide (generic guide based on an Asus motherboard)

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

Here's another guide for a different brand. Notice the differences in the BIOS.
Shadow's Gigabyte motherboard OC guide:
http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/page-245679_11_0.ht...
It's for an EP35-DS3L but all the Gigabyte Core2 BIOS's are similar.

Go through the guides. Then take your core voltage off Auto and set your memory voltage to factory recommended values. Adjust your memory settings for a 1:1 FSB:RAM ratio. At an FSB of 200 MHz, your memory clock should be at 400 MHz.

The stock cooler and DDR2-533 RAM will be your limiting factors. I would expect that you can get up to around 2.1 - 2.2 GHz pretty easily.

The first generation Core2 chips come with a "not bad" stock cooler. But if you are using it, you need to really watch your temperatures pretty closely. You really need to keep your load temps under 70 C. You can use something like RealTemp to monitor your CPU temps.
