How much sense is in overclocking

Recently I’ve overclocked my home desktop from FSB 266MHz to FSB 400MHz. To estimate a difference I ran simple test – HD video encoding which is my frequent compute intensive task. I took short 1:16s HD video and converted it for YouTube:

400MHz FSB – 4:45s
266MHz FSB – 6:06s

Benchmark shows that 33% increase in FSB gives me 22% faster HD encoding. Is it reasonable? It’s up to you to decide.
