The easiest and safest way to overclock is to bump up the motherboard FSB by small increments.  The E6700 starts off at a 266 FSB and you can move this up to see how far you can go.  You can check how they did it in this article: http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=2795&p=18

If you overclock the proc. make sure you have a mean heatsink and fan.

you will burn it up.
