You've gotta slowly increase your FSB/memory speed, along with the core and memory voltage. Good luck!

There should be settings for it in your BIOS.

Press "del" when you computer goes "beep" right after you turn it on!

Google overclocking and guides for it as well. Make sure you read up heavily and ask questions, you could make your computer as useful as a poopy flavored lolly pop when all is said and done.

You have to make sure not to up the voltage too high, and keep a close tab on temps as well. There is a lot more too it, but you need to read some guides and such first.
