Basically, just start turning up the core speed multiplier in 1x increments, test 20 minutes with Prime95 blend and watch package temps with HWMonitlor. You don't want package temp to exceed 60c. There are other temps to watch with regard the socket area but not to worry about that yet. When the core speed multiplier reaches a value that won't allow you to pass the 20 minute Prime95 blend stress test then add .025 to the core voltage and retest. That'll get you started.
