Bingo
This should be the first step when something goes bad with a overclock. As I said in post #2

Extra bandwidth IS NOT worth the abuse these boards take when pushing like this. Some people will not agree, but it does NOT add up and does NOT help in real world applications. The ONLY place you see that little bit of bandwidth doing anything is synthetic benchmark scores.
I got to say this, I run 2 overclocks on my rigs
1 is 24/7 stable and is for everyday use a healthy overclock that I know will be rock solid (nothing worst than gaming and you crash because you 1-2 mhz to high)
#2-I run the highest possable overclock that will run benchies 3Dmark/superpi/ect this is not a "stable" overclock but will yeild the highest score.
So yes there is a reason to run higher FSB, if you are shooting for that elusive score then yes I would and do.
