My System Specs

To say the least, the E0 stepping overclocks to 4.0ghz with little to no effort. However the C0 stepping is a different story, some people have gotten it to 4.0ghz and past that without much trouble, some users had to play deeply with their settings, increasing voltages.

I've been hearing that most of the E8400 sold nowadays are all E0 steppings.
+1 - some of the Voltage requirements I've been seeing for a 4 Ghz OC are amazing with that EO Chip. I did have mine Prime Stable for about an hour at 4.25Ghz but had to jack the Voltage up to 1.55v..did a Bench then backed it down.
