As mentioned by TSXmike everyone's OC will be different, it depends on many factors. I am in the processing of building a new PC myself so I haven't OC'ed the sandybridge/ivybridge class processors and they have changed how OC is done since my last experience (though I hear it's much easier now).

You will want to look up some information on OC'ing with the current processors, as I understand it you simply increase the multiplier at this point. Since this is your first overclock let me start by saying, say away from the voltage until you are more comfortable. OC'ing is relatively safe until you start playing with voltages. Start small, and use small increments, each time you increase run a test to make sure you are still stable. Keep doing this until you see signs that you are no longer stable or your CPU heat is getting too high. Then back down a little bit and run longer stability tests.
