E8500 problem

Hello people!
I have a question to ask regarding overclocking the E8500.
My specs are:

psu - Blue Storm 400W
mbo - DFI LanParty X48 DARK
ram - DDRII Mushkin Red Line 1000MHz
and the E8500 which currently runs on 3.16GHz :D 

I just wanted to try a bit of clocking so i changed the FSB from 333 to 348,saved and restarted.Vista loaded successfully first time and i ran Prime95 for 2 hours.Then i stopped it and it reported no errors and no warnings.The problem occurs the next time i try to turn on the computer-post completes and the schrollbar runs a few times and a blue screen appears.It stays there for half a second and the computer restarts over and over.When i change the FSB value to 333 everything goes back to normal.
Any clues?

I'm most likely guessing that your running most of the bios settings on "Auto"..? If that's the case i suggest you read the guides posted on the forums to roughly get an idea of overclocking. :)

Last night i realised that i don't have the adjust Vcore voltage option in my BIOS...
I googled a bit and saw that few other people have the same issue with their LanParty x48 DARK.
Does anyone have any idea what next?
