D975XBX2 Current Processor Voltage vs CPU Voltage Override

    I'm trying to OC my D975XBX2 with a E6600. I've gotten it up to 3.1GHz
    (FSB 346MHz) with no problem. Fully loaded temp is at 50 C, stability
    is good, and no voltage changes have been required. I changed the FSB
    to 356MHz and I am basically stuck. I have upped to the MCH voltage to
    1.575, FSB voltage to 1.4V, and increased the CPU Voltage Override 4
    times and nothing has changed. Orthos will run for about 5 to 15
    minutes and then either crash or get an error. Temps aren't any higher
    then when I was at a FSB of 346MHz.

    My question is whether I am really changing the CPU voltage. The
    "Current Processor Voltage" field in the BIOS has not
    changed from 1.325V and CPU-Z has not changed it's reading of 1.213V.
    Should these be changing? I am using the latest BIOS revision of 2663.
    The memory reference frequency is still sit at the default.

    Thanks for any help.
