Was wondering what is generally the best way to push this little baby of mine now that it's working OK?

So far I have just pushed up the FSB a notch at a time until it can't boot into windows then upped 0.05V on the Vcore and tried again.

Vcore=1.75V FSB up to 146
Vcore=1.80V FSB up to 148
Vcore=1.85V FSB up to 149

I was wondering what the next steps I can do are?

My options are :-
Turn on the rest of case fans (only using 2 of 4 at moment) but then temps seem to be steady at 16~19 deg above ambient whatever FSB I am using so will this make a difference?
Do Vcore mod to get more volts but then will this make any significant difference especially as changing up to 1.85V only made 3 MHz FSB difference? Which is [email protected] multiplier so not bad I suppose but....
Do something with RAM timings like all this 2-2-2 etc malarky that I don't really understand. Please explain someone.
Change VGA to something quicker.
Find some way of doing Vdimm mod on Dragon +

I do not want to :-
Unlock CPU (Scared:( )
Change RAM/mobo/cooling
Get any form of water near ma electronix!
