Default Overclocking

I am wanting to overclock my computer and I have never done that before. I dont have the slightest clue on how to even start the process of overclocking and I dont want to go to far because this is the familey computer so I dont want to burn up the motherboard or something. Is their any way to see the temp of the computer with some kind of program with out adding a component to the computer and also what is a safe temp range for a computer with the stock colling system?

try Google first and read various articles and reviews where a cpu or ram is overclocked. then search for "overclocking faq". that should yield a few results.

THEN come back at us with some hardware specs
