Go in the BIOS when it freeses and check the temps. We don't want a toasted CPU, don't we?

Your memory is at it's max. I don't see the point OCing it, but I wouldn't recommend it.

Have you tried increasing the voltage? You shouldnt have to though for such a small overclock. Is your memory and processor running on a divider? If its not make sure your memory is running as close as possible to its rated speed.

Yeah its your memory. Value memory willn't run very much past its rated speed. You are going to have to run it on a divider if you want to overclock. Check out 99Nasha's guide for more info.
