Pentium 4 631 Voltage? New to CPU overclocking

I have a Pentium 4 631. I overclocked it from 3.0ghz to 4.0ghz with about a 0.1125v increase and 0.125v increase to the northbridge. Is this good? I read a review of the processor on newegg -somebody recommended adding 0.2v to the MCH before oc'ing.
I have not even a general idea of how much of a voltage increase I should be doing for such an overclock.
Also, I used some divider to keep my memory at 800 - it's ddr2 800 at stock speeds now.

If your system boots, doesn't hang or freeze, then it seems it was successful.. You can stress test it with programs like Orthos to be certain that it is stable.

You should read the Core2Duo guide to get a general idea on OCing. Although the guide is meant for the newer cpus, the same procedures apply.
