  1. im no overclock expert but it is what it is, if you higher ur fsb your cpu needs "more juice" meanin more volts so if u upper ur FSB, so your cpu runs faster, you'll also have to give it more juice, =) its like a car, the faster you go, the more gasoline you burn, =D... tho higher voltages DO give you higher temps
  2. You have to give it a higher voltage to run stable at higher speeds.... usuaully. You can usually increase the speed at stock voltage and be ok but that is why we have stability testing.
