Default Overclocking CPU again?

When overclocking, naturally the hyperthreading overclocks too. Should I lower it, would it be a little dangerous for it to be too high?

Also when I overclocked my CPU to 2.6GHz, my computer wouldn't run and realised I forgot to up the voltage. It was originally at 1.325 or 1.35 .. I upped it to 1.4 and it's able to run. However, I'd like to increase it more, but I can't as I need to up the voltage, but am not able to as it's already maxed. Is there another way to increase it?


Asus P5Q PRO | Intel Q6600, 3.40GHz | Core-Contact Freezer CPU cooler (36 idle) | (2x2)Gb Skillz DDR2 @ 978MHz | Radeon 4870 1Gb | Raptor 10K rpm 74Gb | Windows Vista x64 |

see if there are any bios updates, they might allow you to raise the voltage higher.
