There is a very good guide at the top of this section, thats as good a walk-through as you will get I'm afraid,
a lot here would say if you haven't researched/learned enough to give you confidence, don't do it

Overclocking is like space travel, you make damn sure you learn everything you need to before you get going! :p 
having said that, you have a Black edition chip so clocking is as simple as upping your multiplier in bios,
you should have a temperature monitoring program like hwmonitor, it can help you keep an eye on voltages too, and Cpu-z can tell you your corespeeds amongst other useful info,

As Motopsychojdn says you need to research this stuff, I doubt you find anyone who walk you through step by step. We get that a lot on these forums with people asking for that. The biggest issue is there are several small differences between machines so we can't tell you exactly what to do. Not to mention if something goes wrong you more than likely know how to fix it if you did your research, where as if you didn't you be stumped and don't know what to do.

But if you truely don't want deal with this hassle, there is always those motherboards that will OC the CPU for you. I don't reccomend them as some are trigger happy with the Vcore and will help fry your CPU a lot quicker than I would like. Now is there any for the 965BE I don't know you have to research that too.
