Overclocking proccessor

Overclocking isn't really something to be done lightly, or just off of the information you would gather from a topic like this. Look up overclocking guides for your specific mobo and go from there. Since you have a locked CPU multiplier all you will be able to do is up the bus speed. All cpu overclocking should be done through the BIOS. There are applications that will do it through the OS but you want to stay away from those.

Okay, I'm in BIOS at the moment. Looking for how to change the bus speed by 400 MHz

Honestly you should probably stop and spend a few days reading up on overclocking.

Is it not safe to raise the speed by 400 MHz?

When you overclock you want to build up to the highest possible speed at the lowest possible voltage and you get through small, incremental jumps.

You can ruin your computer overclocking. I suggest you read up a bit more on it before you attempt anything because it doesn't seem like you know more than "overclock = faster computer for free". Or just set your FSB to the highest it will go, jack up your CPU voltage and melt your mobo. Whichever.

Any help on changing the Overdrive settings? :(

That's an AMD application, I'm not sure how well it would work/if it would work at all with an Intel CPU. Besides, for CPU overclocking you want to go through the BIOS, always.

Do yourself a favor and read this:

Most of it won't be applicable because you have a locked processor, but you really should have a grasp on that info before you attempt any sort of overclock.

Well I watched this and I guess all I do is I had to change the core limit ratio from 35 to 37. The 37 multiplied by the 100 BCLK frequency turns to 3700 MHz or 3.7 GHz. And that's pretty much all I had to do, besides turning off energy saving features.

AMD overdrive is for your GPU, it has nothing to do with your CPU. Do you have an aftermarket heatsink? Heat is an issue when overclocking.
