core voltage is a tricky thing - One seemingly absolute is that a lower rated processor needs more juice to attain a higher multiplier than the processor it's rated at.
Of course, to every theory, there's an exception (little CYA action).
I think many will agree to run your beautiful T-bird as close to spec voltage as possible, but get it running as fast as possible, at a stable clock - as long as your committed to overclocking.
So, if the spec is 1.6 (hypothetical) & you o/c the CPU by 100 MHz, try running it at 1.6 corev. If it won't post, or is unstable, tick the vcore up a notch & test is with a 3D game or seti.
Now that said, FSB is a little different. Sure, it taxes your processor, but more strain is placed on the system & memory bus, along with the processor - but more than likely less voltage will be necessary to run as similar speeds that just use the multiplier to attain.
So, go for the gusto - increase the multipler to a stable speed & the FSB as high as your system will tolerate. You'll get better memory bandwidth & system throughput, but you may suffer more instability as well, because of the extended strain on the overall system, rather than just the processor
