This is FSB testing of the motherboard to determine what is the highest FSB that your system is able to run without impact of CPU (Vcore)..
When CPU is @ 8x multiplier then its heavily overclocked (450MHz FSB x 8 = 3.6GHz) and it can cause to make stress test fail..
Now with CPU multiplier @ 6x your CPU is running @ 2700MHz and it would not cause stress test to fail..
If your OC fail in stress test with multi @ 6x then you'll know that it's your motherboard's fault not CPU..
That error would be only related to NB or RAM voltage not via Vcore for CPU..
Once you find out max stable FSB of your board then you try to run it w/ CPU multiplier @ 8x and higher Vcore, and you stress test it with 15 runs of Intel Burn Test (if it fails you just add more Vcore and test again with IBT)..
