Over Clocking my Pentium 4 -

I want to over clock my pentium 4 further but I am having problems with the correct way to do it. I currently use the Gigabyte Easytune 5 software but it resets my Overclock on restart. Is it best to do it through the bios? Is there a bettter Application for this?
What idle temps are acceptable for my chip. I am at about 48C right now. What is too hot for idleing?
Its a tad high but nothing too high. What are your load temps? Run prime for a while to see what load temps are. Then jump the voltage and or play with ram settings and or up the voltage on the ram and chipset. after that jump the voltage to no higher than 1.45v and try again.

I am using a P4 3.06ghz and a gigabyte board (EasyTune5), and have completely stopped using bios overclocking because easytune's been doing so well for me. I routinely put it at 3.55ghz w/o any problems...that being said, I'm watercooled. My processor temp at full load is 39celcius.
As far as I can tell, easytune cannot hold an overclock through a reboot, but since I only overclock when gaming, that's not a bad thing.
