Set it to manual first. And then, you can just change the multiplier (even if the box seems grey-ed out).

What motherboard do you have?
 
Your CPU doesn't have an unlocked multiplier and your motherboard will only allow for base clock (BCLK) overclocking. You could possibly gain a 200-300Mhz overclock before the computer would start to BSOD, assuming your PSU was decent, which I doubt it is.

BCLK overclocking affects the RAM and PCIe slots, hence why the increase you gain is minimal and the end result isn't worth the trouble.
