It should be fine going up in 10-15 Mhz increments, just keep a close eye on Cpu temps at each interval.

Go by 15 until its unstable or the temps are too high, then back off until the temps are ok and everything is stable.

You will know when it is too high, the system won't boot and you will have to reset CMOS.

Sometimes it will not be your temps and you will have to up your Vcore to increase stability.

I would actually increase the FSB speed in steps of 3-4MHz at a time, this will make it more likely to find the exact point where you will need to increase the processor voltage (vcore)

This helps when overclocking as you can work with the system configuration better and learn its cut off points at specific voltages/frequencies and learn to avoid them.

I would also set your BIOS to sound an alarm when it reaches over a certain temp...I did that with my board when I was overclocking, everything would be fine until the Load started and then the alarm would go off if my CPU temps went to high, you'll know quick

This was for my Abit BIOS not sure how the others work but i dont see why they wouldnt have a temp alarm
