I'm on p3 667 running at 5.0 x 133mhz.  I'm wondering if I could run at 5.0 x 140mhz with 128mb x 2 at pc133?  

at the moment i'm running at 700 (5x140).  it runs fine but i dont know if problems could occur.  any ideas at all would help thanks.

Well, potential problems might be:

1) The PC133 memory might not be happy running at 140MHz. Symptoms of this would include random crashes because the value of some of the memory isn't being read properly.
2) Since your FSB is at 140MHz you're actually running your PCI bus at 140/4 = 35MHz, which is out of spec for PCI. Therefore all the cards on the PCI bus have to be able to run at 35MHz.
3) Similarly, the AGP slot will probably be running at 70MHz rather than its rated 66, affecting your graphics card.

However, none of these are too likely to cause a problem in your case because you're overclocking by such a piffling amount. I really don't know why you bothered for a 5% increase in clock speed.

Unfortunately it isn't possible. Unlike AMD (who use a system of "bridges" on the processor packaging to determine the multiplier), Intel actually write the multiplier to a special area of non-volatile storage on the chip which cannot be rewritten once set--therefore the multiplier is locked solid and cannot be changed.
