When I had a P5Q Deluxe, I was wondering why after 440Mhz FSB I needed a big jump in volts to the NB to keep it stable. Then I got a good tip, after you go past a certain FSB speed, the NorthBridge GTL setting will go out of wack on auto, you need to set it manually. Believe I was using 0.625 for NorthBridge GTL and 1.3 NB Volts to maintain 500Mhz FSB stability.
Depending on what board you have tho has different GTL settings and some don't allow much adjustment tho.

Well I wasn't meaning to sound like I was implying that every board and processor was exactly the same, I was simply giving him a heads up from research I have done with the same set up, and results others have had, as well as results I have had of simple ways to improve stability and performance so that his NB and CPU won't require crazy volts for Stability.
