I think it would be safe to turn your FSB up to at least 215. In case your mobo doesn't boot, make sure you know how to reset the BIOS. I believe there's a reset button on the mobo for MSI motherboards; at least on mine there were.

If you want to turn up the FSB higher than 220 or so, I would recommended reducing thet HTT multiplier to 4x from the default 5x.

Put up the FSB in small chunks of say 5mhz, when it gets unstable add the smallest amount of voltage possible and carry on. Don't go more than 5% over stock voltage with stock cooling, and watch temps.

If it's unstable and raising the voltage by quite a bit doesn't do anything, stick more through your RAM.
