E6300 w/ Asus P5N-D

Hey guys, I'm sure I've mentioned it before, but I'm not very educated with overclocking. So I don't understand it very much.

On my BIOS, there's an AI overclock, where I can select 10% OC, 20%, 30, 50, etc. I can select 5% overclocking, which leaves me at 1.96GHz, and that's from 1.86GHz stock.

But as soon as I select 10%, it just won't boot.

Why is this? Is it because of the heat? What's limiting it? And if I manually adjust the FSB and core clock, how far should I push it each test?

Thanks if you respond.
