Default CPU voltage not changing

Ok, so I've had my Q6600 (G0) @ 3GHz on stock voltage (1.27) for about two years now, and I thought that it was about time to go to 3.2 or 3.4 - so I bumped the FSB and the voltage to 1.28 to attempt 3.2. It boots fine, however CPUID and ASUS Probe still show the old voltage setting - 1.27. Running OCCO or Prime shows me errors on CPU1, so it's not stable...even if I change the voltage to 1.3, there's no registered change in any of the hardware monitors (except BIOS).

My mobo is a P5K.

Any thoughts? Am I doing something wrong?
