Default Cpu Clock Ratio

Hello there,
I'm running an Intel Quad Q6600 and in the bios settings it has the options to change the cpu clock ratio form between 6x to 9x mounths ago when I was having trouble with high temperatures I reduced it to 6x now that I have a properly ventiladted system and normal temperatures i have just raised it to 9x without making any other changes, is there any chance this might cause unstabilities or damadge my parts?

Ps: the temperatures are fine and i havent had any crashes yet

I have the same exact CPU. I have it slightly OCed to 3.07Ghz.

I never messed with that. I always say,"If it works fine, leave it. If you want an adventure, tweak it."
