Help with overclocking my E8400
I'm new to overclocking. I have had it overclocked by a friend however he never saved it as an overclock profile and one day I messed it up by resetting it when it incorrectly booted due to power failure.

I have quite a limited knowledge to overclocking so I may ask a lot of questions and not understand some stuff you are saying.

My specs are:
E8400 stock speed (obviously)
ASUS P5QL Pro motherboard
Corsair 4GB 800MHz CL5 1.9v
Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme CPU cooler

Google is your friend. That chip has been out for a while now so there is plenty of overclocking guides out there. Make note of all your standard settings then, using the guides, start tweaking your bios. Use stress testing programs to ensure your settings are stable and monitor your temps accordingly. Keep a record of all your settings so you know what works and what does not. Good luck, the E8400 is a great chip!!
