FSB and multiplier settings...HELP ME!

PC configuration:

1.. AMD AthlonXP 2800+ (Socket A)
2.. Motherboard ASUS A7V600-X (BIOS 1002)
3.. 512 MB of RAM 400DDR Elixir
4.. HD Maxtor SATA 80GB.
5.. Windows XP Professional Service Pack 1

The default settings in BIOS are:
CPU SPEED: 2083 MHz
CPU FREQ. MULTIPLE: 12.5x
CPU EXTERNAL FREQ.: 166/33
MEMORY FREQ.: AUTO
CPU VCore SETTING: AUTO

If I rise CPU EXTERNAL FREQ. from 166 to 200 ( =>400FSB right? ) and I
decrease CPU FREQ. MULTIPLE from 12.5x to 10.5x, do I obtain again about
2083 MHz in CPU SPEED, right?
Therefore, I wonder whether:

1)Since I have RAM 400DDR, do I gain something in terms of performance?
2)Do I cause a general overheating?
3)Do I have the same stability that I have now with default settings?
4)Can these changes be considered overclock?

It's useful to do these two changes?
Thanks

2100MHz.

Yes, A little. Maybe 4%

Shouldn't.

You'll have to test and see. If you have good ram, you should.

Not nuch, about 4%.:-)

Wes Newell mumbled his insignificant opinion in:

That sure depends on how you benchmark it... Try a memory benchmark, and you
will notice an allmost direct proportional difference between 166 and 200. I
did same trick with my nforce2 board with xp2000, raised both cpu and ram to
200/400, and it scored 15% higher in memory benchmarks , and generally gave
a 3-5 fps increase in games -thats around a 5-10% increase.

Absolutely worth it.

Is the CPU Unlock'd?

If not then your not going to be able to run it like that.

Yes the CPU is unlock'd

Then yes, if you run @ 200fsb with the correct settings you'll see some
improvement.
