Default Overclocking

Ok I got my rig up and going, ASUS M4A785-M AMD 785G Socket AM3 Motherboard, AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto 3.1GHz Socket AM3 80W Dual-Core Processor, cooler master V8 cpu cooler. I wanna start over clocking, never have b4. What do I do to overclock and what is the highest I should go? I am showing in coretemp idle 67 degrees f - 74 degrees f.

I only refer you to these guides because your question is very general, and I feel it would be redundant for me to type out all the information again, don't take it personally. If there are anymore questions you'd like to ask, please post all.

Shoot, don't overclock. Unlock the extra 2 cores. That board seems to be the best at doing that.

Then overclock if you need it.

For some reason when I unlock the cores coretemp wont work, It opens but doesnt monitor the cpu correctly. It says 32 degrees f and never changes. I wanna monitor temp.

the cores are better.

Just keep the voltages safe and you'll be fine.

I just unleashed the cores in cmos, I didnt mess with voltages, do I need to change some voltages?

should be fine at stock.

run prime95 to make sure its stable.

Keep the voltage below 1.5 and your temps should be fine. I don't have the cooler, but that is my estimate.

If you want to keep it icy chill...
