The point with the voltage is you increase it to maintain a stable overclock.
But, as you increase it, so does heat. So you don't kill your processor prematurely, it's a good idea to get a stable overclock, then decrease the voltage enough so that you keep a stable overclock with a minimal voltage.
Don't mean to hijack, but can someone direct me to a good program that can detect VID. I never knew it was voltage for stock, PC Wizard 2008 says I have a 1.351 VID yet I'm overclocked with 1.28 volts... Just seems off...
