heating issues? instability? and it could be lack of power.

your pushing its past its limit, simple as. The idea with overclocking is to keep tweaking untill you hit the limit. Don't crank it up 100mhz and expect it to be stable

QFT. Overclock one clock at a time in small increments. Keeping an eye on the temperature. You can use ATI Tool for stress testing.
