My System Specs

Default

Their are no guarentees when it comes to OC'ing up to and beyond 4 GHZ, all Chips are individual when it comes to the required Voltage and Temperatures. With that said, my E8400 is an old C1 Stepping, its been running at 4.05 Ghz for just about a year now at vCore 1.45 (set in BIOS) equates to about 1.38v under foal Benching load, as far as HSF, really just about any decent HSF on the market out their is more than adequate for this Chip, even my Zalman keeps it well below 60c under full Prime Load.
Good luck...I'll be retiring my E8400 next week for an I7 920. Well, retiring it to a "second Rig"...
