    To check stability of gfx card play games that u have played many times before so u can see if these are any error in rendering or anything

    Not only memTest also over-heating tests. Definitely if you over-clock , the CPU
    temperature is going to shootup. Over-Clock little-by-little, simultaneously check the
    temperature. A good big copper heatsink will also help. Too much over-heating
    results in a burnt motherboard, so be cautious!!

    my processor's stock speed was 2.0 ghz. i ocd it to 2.15 ghz and got these readings in sisoft sandra in the burn in test after 10 runs:
    Board Temperature : 46.0°C (Min 40.0°C; Avg 45.7°C; Max 49.0°C)
    CPU Temperature : 59.0°C (Min 43.0°C; Avg 57.3°C; Max 61.0°C)
    are these temperatures normal ?can i overclock further? plz help!

    That looks OK to me. I also want you to stress-test the machine under heavy-duty
    Graphics game like Doom 3. After over-clocking also check with 3D Mark 2005
    scores. See how much difference you notice between previous state ( normal state)
    and after overclocking (hyper-state).

    for overclocking you can also use bios. you can increade the clock speed frm ther.. total cpu speed = clock speed x multiplier .

    if clock speed is 200mhz and multiplier is 10 then cpu speed is = 2 ghz
