Default first time OC'er looking for advice

Hey guys, trying to overclock my computer for the first time and I just have a few questions if you guys can help me. First just so you know I have a:
DFI LP DK P45-T2RS Plus paired with a e8500

At the moment, I have the computer running at 350 x 9.5 eating Prime95 tests for breakfast at a cool 48 celcius full load -- 29 idle.

Just to see how I managed, i put the FSB @ 400 and I had to reset the CMOS.

I realise now that i need to raise the Vcore, but when I tried looking for it on the mobo, I couldn't find a single voltage that said I could raise it.
Instead I found:
SB Core/CPU PLL Voltage (Southbridge core -- I found out through a quick search): 1.55
NB Core volt (Northbridge core): 1.1825
CPU VTT volt: 1.20

Am I looking in the wrong place or am I just misunderstanding something -- please help!!

Thanks in advance
