When tweaking FSB speed to overclock, are there intervals that you should use like 333 and so on? or can you do whatever.

cool as long as it dosent fry my ship is all good

ok so my pc was working fine with the 3.23 clock ,but i was messing around
on the web and downloading updates wen i tho ill check my temps ,and my core was at 98-100c ,but i forgot to mention that i set the voltage from manual to auto .
maybe that what caused the high temp?
so i set the clock back to normal at 2.53 ill wait till i get some replays
b4 i try to clock again

this thread is a week old i been busy and havent had time to mess with my pc.
i just went back into bios ,and set the clok to 333 from 267 making it a 3.16 from a 2.53 .
i upped the voltage a bit, is still in the 1.1s v but seems to be holding up .
prime 95 is running a self test as i write this and seems to be holding .
now i what to do is get the most performance out of this pc as safely as possible with out having to buy a new cooler and stuff .
i really cant afford any extras expenses right now .
i like to overclock the my video card as well but i dont know exactly what i have to change for the card

thanks in advance

video card overclocking is usually done via third party software which makes it nice and easy (ATi card - Download Ati tool , NVIDIA card - Download Riva tool)

Increasing the voltage on you CPU is what increases the temperature's so you are probably best to set the voltage manually and test from there. Your weak link is the stock cooler which you have, so I would find the default voltage for you CPU, manually set it to that, and maybe increase only slightly when you overclock it.

Otherwise your temps will sky rocket to what they were before (98-100c)
