Default Overclock an AMD X2 3800+

I am new to overclocking and am attempting to overclock an AMD X2 3800+. I don’t want to do a max overclock, just enough to give me a nice little boost. I already messed with some settings but if someone could please give me a step by step guide on what to change in my bios I would appreciate it.

My specs…

um, you can overclock your 3800 without raising your voltage to 2.4 ghz, and 2.4 ghz is very safe since you didnt raise ur vcore, just make your sdram mhz as low as u can
