you can't - not really. the i3 has a "locked multiplier" so the only way would be to raise the base clock- Bclk and that is not advisable since you RAM and PCI bus (graphics) runs off that and would cause instability issues. you can go for a 3%-6% gain; raising it to 103 to 106 but that little won't make any difference at all.

If you want to overclock, get an i5 k series or an fx black edition processor. the i3s are locked.

you're fine.

you may get better performance in single threaded apps/games than a i5-3330 with the i3's slightly higher clock speed.
