Do you need to raise the FSB voltage?

On my GA-X28-DQ6 I have it set to 360FSB for a Q6600 (9x multiplier giving 3240). I have the RAM at 2.50A (266Mhz strap giving 900Mhz RAM) at 5-5-5-15

I have raised the MCH 0.1v and the RAM 0.3v and the CPU Voltage by one notch from stock.

The FSB is at stock.

If the system is stable - do you *need* to raise the FSB voltage?

How do you know when an instability is caused by a lack of FSB voltage?

  1. You only raise the voltage if it's unstable. If you reached the target frequency, you want to lower all voltages to stable minimums.

    You never know if it's cause by a particular voltage. You can only suspect and that's kind of a feeling you get once you're more experienced in oc'ing.
    Try to increase different voltages by small increments and seem how it improves stability. If there's a large improvement, you've probably found the voltage responsible for instability.
    However, never increase multiple voltages a once, as you won't know then which one was too low.
