Voltage is risky. Generally, when increasing voltage you need to improve cooling at the same time. Overclocking alone increases heat, and resistance (Ohms) because of the heat. Increasing the voltage increases the heat still further, but improves stability. Get rid of that excess heat, no problems. Leave the stock cooling in place and you'll have expensive fried video card bits.

AGP bus overclocking is of such limited benefit, I really wouldn't bother. Actually I don't, even though I know my present video card (Ti4200) can tolerate bus speeds up to 84 MHz. I don't know that it really is a risk to your card; my experience is it either works, or it doesn't. My card hasn't been any worse after taking the AGP bus too far.
