I don't know very much about overclocking the P3 family of CPU's, but I understand that they are not very overclockable. Overclocking is done by increasing the front side bus speed for these chips since the multiplier cannot be changed.

You can read some general info here:

you also want to consider that using a stock HSF from Intel is not going to provide proper cooling when overclocking. I would reccomend a high performance cpu cooler.
