voltage may need to be up, but try to keep it under 1.4v
check your core temp also

hope that help

sorry if it is not clear, english is not my primary language

cant change the multiplier on a e8400

i have my voltage set to 1.4 and fsb at 445 for a 4ghz overclock.

been stable at that for a year now and my temps are at around 30c idle all the time.
never seen it go above 55c
