When is it imparitive that you up the chipset voltages? All I am doing is upping the fsb and the mult to overclock my TBird. Does the vio need to be upped too? If so, how much should I up it?
On my KT7A, when I up the FSB to 140 and above, I have found that 3.5Vi/o was the most stable for me. Below 140, 3.4Vi/o works fine for me.

My KT7A-R will not even post at 142FSB, if the I/O voltage is less than 3.6v. If you start getting memory related errors, try upping it in the smallest possible increments. Remember also that SDRAM specs allow for 10% deviation.
