What do you guys do to check if your card is stable after a overclock, like doesnt lockup. Also is it true that when you increase your voltages you can clock your card higher?

3DMark06/Vantage are good for stability testing.Along with game benchmarks.
And yes when you raise your VGA's voltage,you can achieve a higher OC.

Also, this guy at my school that is a overclocking genious said if you have a unstable clock increase the voltages until its stable but also keep an eye on the temps? Is this true?

Yes,when you increase the voltage,your temps go up,so definitely keep an eye on your temps.

Yes but does it also result in stabalized overclocks?

Raising the voltage doesn't necessarily make your OC stable, you have to run benchmarks in order to find out whether your OC is stable or not.
Raising voltage gives you more room for OC'ng,but it also lowers your VGA's lifespan and makes it run hotter.

Don't push too hard, it's always better to buy a powerful card or CF/SLI it with another, cause playing with voltage is a little bit risky, especially graphic card...

It's okay to learn something new, but it doesn't mean you must push all your hardware to their limits...
You are lucky that the shop give you a replacement this time, but next time? I'm not sure...
