OCing X2 5200+ w/ a ga M57SLI-S4 Mobo

I'm new to all of this, but

In the BIOS, I overclocked my fsb from 200mhz to 300mhz, and then put the CPU multiplier on 10x. I thought i was ok, but when i clicked on 'save & exit', a prompt window came up saying that i should reset to my default BIOS values. I hit F1 to load Windows anyway. In CPU_Z it rated my cpu @ 2 Ghz. What am I doing wrong?
Thank you in advance for any help. It would be much appreciated.
