The best thing to do is to take it up in small steps until you lose stability, then drop it back a bit.

Yeah, basically. What are the rest of your specs? Do you have an aftermarket heatsink/fan??

Don't expect a huge OC with the stock heatsink/fan. That doesn't matter, monitor temperatures under load. Use Prime95 to test stability, make sure you run 2 instances:

Oh yeah, and Celsius temperatures are normally used.

Just raise the FSB until you hit a wall. Then you'll have to start increasing the voltages as ownage said. Carefully monitor temperatures when doing this though.

What would be good intervals to raise the FSB at?
20's, 60's, 100's
