hows my overlclock?
 
Have a E8400 currently overclocked to 3.7ghz, Voltage is set to 1.23750 in the bios. Idles at 35 and full load is around 47c. How are the temps and the voltage? Wish i could go to 4.0ghz but do too my p43 chipset, wont let me go past like 412 FSB.

higher multiplier... i have my voltage at 1.35 on my AMD chip... its not that bad... 1.35 should be enough to get you to 4GHz.. if you have an aftermarket cooler you'll be fine.. water cooling would be good though..

thanks but like i sad my motherboard restricts me from going any farther.. and i dont think i can get to a higher multi then 9..

No, you can't.

then i think your done.. unless if you up the voltage to the north bridge and try making the FSB higher

Alright, Thanks for the help guys.

to the OP : we need to have the spec of your system , at least the model of the motherboard and the type of cooling :thumb:

how you can say that it's an intel CPU and we don't even know what board he have :doh:

I can crank my e8400 at 4,0 without water , for now I can't tell you the OC spec because I wait for a PSU (:angry2::censored: NCIX ) and I have to much thing in my head to remember it , but it was way over 60'c with my Noctua cooler

you don't even know what cause the board to not go higher, it can over heat, the OP say nothing about what he use as cooler and the other spec..

have a p5ql-pro motherboard with a hyper 212 plus CPU cooler. I have talked to many people who have this motherboard and this is usually the limit. 419 was the highest i saw someone get too.

you probably just need more juice for the NB and tweak those PLL/VLL volts. I can do 450FSB on a G31 chipset. but that thing is dead now :haha:
