Overclocking Intel Q9400

Im gona try out OC my CPU and was going to bump it up to 3.0 GHz from 2.66 as i have seen a lot of my CPU's clock well past this fine. im going to change the FSB from 333 to 375 as this would do it, and i just wanted to know if anyone else has done this on my CPU ok and if i would need to incrase voltage for such a low amount os FSB being added.

I don't have the Q9400 but from most of the articles i've read on clocking it to 3.0 or 3.2 did just what your stating upping the FSB to 375,(for 3.0) none mentioned having to increase the voltage.

You have an after market cooler so I would think it's a safe easy overclock.

You should be fine just bumping it up. If you do encounter any problems, then probably just a minor voltage increase should be enough.
