  1. People say that you should Overclock in increments, but what if you memorized the Overclocking settings and jump directly to them after a CMOS reset?

    It will either work or it wont... no real way of knowing until you try it. Every motherboard is different, and some even allow you to save your settings in profiles, so you might experience a problem or it might work just fine.

    There shouldn't be a problem doing that. Personally done that many times myself.

    The reason why (I think) you're asked to overclock in increments is more to do with actually finding out the actual cap for your system. You should be able to bypass the increments till a safe spot, and go incrementally from there.

    If you know that your system overclocks to 140%, feel free to go straight there (for example).
