Simply increase the BCLK gradually. For starters, leave everything else on auto.

For a modest and safe OC, that's all there is to it.
If you are looking for competitive maximum overclocks, then that is a different matter.

Even then, start with a simple BCLK increase.

Download CPU-Z. It will show you what multiplier you are using at any time.

The OS will downclock your cpu when there is no load on it.

Run something cpu intensive like prime95, and you should see your multiplier go up to the max.

Even though this thread has a best aswer selected, I thought I might chime in.

What is you r motherboard?

If it is an Asus P6T, here is a video of setting that [H]ardOCP did.

I followed it, and ran at 3.8 fine!

Even if your mobo is not as Asus, maybe you can get the settings. I googled it and found 2 very good sites with settings. The above is one. The other is very detailed.

If increasing the base clock freq, as you start clocking the base clock higher, it will also be adding to RAM freq/speeds proportionately...; RAM that is good at stock 1333 Mhz effective might not work once you increase base clock upwards by 15-30%....

Start your mem at lower freq before the OC so that it final OC it will be at whatever speeds/specs your RAM is rated at.
