You need to google for a guide to overclocking. You wont be able to overclock much with the ram you have tho you dont have any headroom.
If you want our help you are gonna have to give us more info. We need to know all you system stats that are relavant to speed. Download CPU-Z & run it then go to the last tab (labled about) & click the hmtl report button. Save this & then copy paste it here & we will try to get you started.

Your not going to have a lot of room with that chip. In your bios under advanced settings. there should be a place where you can adjust the FBS you are running at 201.0 MHz this is the only place you need to worry about adjusting for now. Did you go look for a guide to OCin on Google?
You might not be able to OC very much but I think you should be able to handle 220.0 MHz or so.

Sorry I really can't find a good article on overclocking, and I've spent a while "Googleing". Can anyone find me a tutorial or article of some sort. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
