How do I overclock my Intel Core 2 Duo CPU?

Hello, does anyone know how I can overclock a Intel Core 2 Duo 8500 (3.16 ghz)? I have a Corsair H50 Hydro Cooler that I bought to use for overclocking, but I don't know how.

  1. Not once have I seen anyone take the time, patience and multitudes of paragraphs to explain how to overclock. You would best be finding a guide online. I recommend reading more than one guide. I think I read like 5 before overclocking my Athlon 3200+ for the first time. If you learn more visually, check out the videos you can find.
    Also a note, do not overclock using software. Always do your overclocking in the bios. Alter the base clock. Do not forget to check for stability with a program like prime95(for CPU) and memtest86(for memory). An unstable CPU or ram can lead to a lot of problems and corrupt data.
