Basically, if I had an Athlon XP 1600+, would I need to increase the voltage going into the chip to get it to run at 1400MHz at 200fsb x 7? Or since I am still at stock I wouldn't need to? Any ideas?

Thanks

absolutlely not. The VIO is what is needed to be raised in this situation along with ram voltage if available.

A VIO of 3.6 is a bare minimum must for people who overclock the chipset over 20% behond spec!
