Is there a specific need for the overclock? With overclocking there is trial and error. You can find guides online on how to do it

ive looked online but not sure how to do it still

Overclocking can usually be done via the motherboard for a small increase. A manual overclock is quite complex and should only be done if you know what you’re doing as you can fry the whole build if you don’t.

As said previously, why do you need to overclock?
