Default Re: Anyone overclocking an e8400/e8500 yet?

I'm up to 3.6ghz with 1.3v in BIOS but in windows it's about 1.20-1.25v because of Vdroop.

This is with stock cooler. I tried going to 4ghz but it didn't boot so I backed off and am just doing 3.6ghz for now.

I am hesitant to pump too much voltage into this chip or have to pump voltage into the NB or FSB to get 4ghz.
