Get a good temp monitoring program like everest, and a good CPU stress tester like prime95
follow the overclocking guide on this site, and work slowly dont make big jumps... And do this over weeks, for the most solid/stable overclock.
I have a 5200+ and many people can bring these to the 3.0 GHZ area without issues , each processor is unique though!
