It has been a while since I set up my old E7500 but this is the best I remember:
Base Frequency:400
Multiplier: 8.0 (gives you 3.2GHz and FSB:1600MHz) (you can try later 8.5 = 3.4GHz and 9.0 = 3.6GHz)
Memory Multiplier: 2.0 (gives you both an 800MHz RAM speed and a 1:1 Ratio CPU/RAM)
Lock the PCIe at 100 fixed.
Disable C states.

riider will probably pop by and give you more details as I have forgot much in the details.

Please note that you have not mentioned your graphics card (if any) and that will have at least as much to do with the graphics performance in gaming and actually more. Seriously consider upgrading that if you cannot yet upgrade the system and back down on the game settings.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Are you trying to play AAA games with a dual core?
(Modern games pretty much require at least 4 logical cores these days, some games wont even start with 2 logical cores.)

build a new 400~500$ system, and upgrade it later if needed...
(i3-8100(110$)+gtx 1050 ti(150$ or get an rx 570 4GB) +450watt PSU(40$) + 2x4GB ddr4 2133(65$) + 50$ motherboard + 30$ case)

i5-6600K[delid]@4.7GHz/4.3GHz@1.424v LLC=6 | 2x4GB Crucial-DDR4-2133CL15@14-14-14-30 1T 2800MHz@1.37v
MSI Armor RX 570 4GB@1415Mhz core@1.2v/1920MHz

Overclocking the CPU won't make up for the fact that you only have 2GB RAM. You also didn't state what graphics card you have, if you even have one. The integrated Intel GMA 3100 is a basic graphics chip & sucks for gaming. Doubling your RAM amount (4GB is max) & adding a gaming graphics card will help, but you should seriously consider a complete rebuild instead.
