Default what dangers to watch for when overclocking?

from all of the forums i have read temperature is the one major thing to check when overclocking...

i have been playing with clockgen, and i am using cpuz to double check processor speed, and i am using coretemp32 to watch the cpu temp...

my cpu temp is staying steady at 34C and when i ran the cpu burn in test it did not go above 42C

so far i have overclocked a amd sempron 3200+ 1.79 ghz to 2059.7mhz

i am not sure what pll selection to use so i have tried a few and the first 2 only let me oc to 1850mhz and i found one that let me go to 2059mhz is the temperature the one major thing to check for or should i check other things before i continue?

thank you for any helpful information

It was probably unstable. Check your mem freq. Temp is your main concern at this point. Add alittle cpu vcore and/or HTT
