I'm no expert ... but it wasn't that long ago folks were overclocking just to get to 3.4 ghz.... 3.4 is pretty darn fast. Overclocking is just to much of a hassle and hard on hardware in my opinion.
you could do it in small increments and keep an eye in temperatures. There is no one perfect setting, everybody's computer is different.
just a fellow members two cents.

I don't suggest Overclocking with the Stock Intel Heatsink & fan assembly.

Well if you get a good aftermarket cooler then would overclock through the Bios.
