The NB speed will make a HUGE DIFFERENCE. The higher the better. It's as much of a difference or more of a difference than your CPU clocks. If it gets unstable, then add CPU-NB voltage.
VCore = safe to 1.55v (1.60v with balls)
CPU-NB volt = safe to 1.45v (1.50v with balls)
You should be able to reach around 2600-2700 or better on your NB with safe CPU-NB voltage.
Your HT Link should stay between 1800-2100 though. It does nothing at all, and can actually cause an unstable system if its too far away from stock.
