i have the same cpu, and i overclocked mine in the BIOS... don't mess with anything else. On my mobo, there's this option that let's you have the frequencies "user defined" and i can change the FSB by 1MHZ at a time.. Don't change any jumpers, and don't go directly to 200MHZ, unless you are confident in your cooling. What tempetures are you getting?
Samsung QX410 notebook <-- lol, I'm always on the go these days :(
