Like i said there is more than the information you need on the internet you just have to look for it, i like google you just type in what you want and it will find it for you but there are lots of effective search engines.

Intel overclocking is thus quite a simple process.
1. Boot the computer into the BIOS screen.
2. Increase FSB speed in 5-10MHz increments. Reboot after each increment to ensure that the system can still boot into Windows properly.
3. If the system hangs, crashes or refuses to boot into Windows, increase the memory voltage slightly and retry. If this does not work, increase the chipset voltage and finally the core voltage. If this still does not work, reduce FSB settings slightly, reset the voltages to their previous values and try again.
4. Keep going until the system can no longer boot reliably into Windows, then back off to the previous 'safe' settings. Keep an eye on the processor's temperature in the BIOS. Remember that it should be under 70°C.
5. Benchmark the overclocked system and compare the results to the performance baseline established earlier. If the system does not complete the benchmarks or crashes, either reduce the FSB setting slightly or increase voltages to compensate and retry.
6. Depending on the current overclocked FSB speed, a memory divider can be used to try to achieve higher speeds. Note that the memory may not be the limiting factor, and if it is not, the divider will not help.
7. Once a fully benchmarked overclocked setting is achieved, run the Prime95 stress test for a couple of hours to verify that the system is generally stable. Enjoy the free additional performance!
If this is sufficient then I will try it. What can go wrong?!!

If you understand how memory works and how voltage affects components you gain an understanding of how far its safe to push it otherwise you keep going until it break basically, sure you can go up till it stops working but its much better to know to stop before it stops working.
If you try it and dont know what you are doing then the only person to balme when you fry your system is yourself.
AMD overclocking is generally easier because they have the multiplier unlocked going down they run cooler and there is more performance increase hoe every extra clock than your average intel.
Also its foolish to overclock an intel system using the stock cooler, the same goes for most chips the only ones that are really acceptable overclockers using the stoclk are the 939 AMD chips but thats because A. they are cool and B. the stock cooler is better than stock coolers usually are. Ive a friend who overclocks using an intel he uses one of the big thermalright 120mm HSFs and those are about as good as air cooling get his load temps are still well above 50 and into the 60s at times so if youre going to overclock better cooling is a must.

I can't do it for you; you live in England and I can't reach that far

By the way, I don't care if my Computer melts as long as there isn't a fire. I can't do that again.

Just go look for the information its what people do when they want to know how to do something you research the task and find out what you need to do, it doesnt take a long time and you understand what to do and what to do in the future.
