Don't be embarassed, you're here to learn! And we'd like to think we can teach you something too.
A stock HS should let you raise the clock speed by 10% minimum, unless the thing is TOTAL crap, but I doubt that's the case. Still though, if you want to do a decent job then go with funnyperson1's advice.

Well, you will be able to figure that out. As for a good guide to overclocking, check out the guide that batboy wrote. I don't know the link (maybe somebody reading this does and will post it) but you can find it in Tips & Techniques -> Beginner Guides -> Overclocking Basic Training. It'll tell you tons...most of what I said above, but lots more, and all in greater detail. Check it out.
