My interpretation with overclocking was that if the machine became unstable the raise the voltage a tad & try again. Both of these changes will result in an increase in running temperature. In my case I had raised the clock from 3.4G to 3.8G (2600K) with no increase in voltage needed but on short renders overheating occurred too quickly. Hence I dropped the clock back to 3.4G and tested again. I reasoned that I could probably drop the voltage as well which proved to be the case. Hence my enquiry as to your reasoning to raise the voltage after dropping the clock speed.
