Default OC E8400 on P5QL

All the manuals for OCing on the net are for P5QL PRO.
This is my first overclock so i wanna make sure i dont mess anything up.
I found this: (for P5QL pro)
Under AI Tweaker Menu

Set FSB Frequency to 400mhz
Set PCIE Frequency to 100
Set FSB Strap to Northbridge to 400mhz
Set DRAM frequency to 400mhz

DRAM = Memory

Now i cant find FSB Frequency
Cant find PCIE frequency
Found FSB Strap to Northbridge
DRAM frequency - it (BIOS) says if i put it under 667, it may result as a boot up failure.
So any help would be welcome.
And yes i know i also have to change voltages.
Ok i just found out that the 2 BIOSes are different.
Okay EVERYBODY has Pro or P5QL-E so im hopeless!
I have no idea how to overclock with P5QL
Im utterly shocked about how left out this mobo is.
Okay i could overclock, but after the exit bios restart my PC wouldnt boot into windows and said i have to insert Windows CD and repair windows... sup with that?
So i changed back to stock settings and it booted right away.
