Thread Starter 
is overclocking basically raising the cpu fsb along with the vcore to keep up with the new speeds?

Somewhat. Vcore should only be raised if it has to be. You raise the fsb in 5mhz incriments until the system wont boot or it is unstable. Then you play with vcore and ram ratio's, etc. Read this guide to help you with the overclocking.

Into Windows is best, but I do it differently because I'm impatient. I just make sure my new clock can POST each time, then restart until it can't. Then I go to the last POST-able clock, and see if I can boot into Windows. If I can't, I lower it 5mhz and try again. Of course, you want to check for complete stability once you CAN boot into Windows, and the guide posted above should explain that.

Boot into windows and stress test the cpu to make sure its stable.
