To increase the speed from 2.4GHz to 2.7GHz, I only needed to increase the voltage by 0,0375 (to 1.3625V). So I thought adding another 0,0375 on top of that (that makes 1.4V) would be enough for 3GHz. I think there may be another problem.
This is true, you will have to put more voltage to achieve similar OC's as those with lower VID's.

What I have seen though is that even with move vcore, CPU's with higher VIDs run cooler at the same frequency. i.e. Lots of people with low VID's run in the mid 60's on air to get 3.6Ghz (1.4v). I have to use 1.46v under load but I never go above 59C folding 24/7.

I have read tons of threads about this issue. Push your CPU as far as you can and keep it under 60C/1.5v under load. 65nm chips are tanks.
