Just wanted to let you guys know that I've started overclocking my fiance's new E8400. My goal is 3.8Ghz and hopefully higher. I'm hoping to keep it under 50 C on full load if possible.
So far the results look very promising. I'm at 3.45 Ghz currently. Core voltage= 1.25V. CPU cooler is a Zalman CNPS9700 LED.
Memory is 2x2GB Patriot 1066mhz memory. The timings are 4-4-4-12-2T and Mem voltage=2.0V
I'm using Orthos CPU/memory blend to test stability, and so far, nothing has changed since I started. The highest temperature I've gotten so far is 44 C. All the voltages, memory timings, etc. are all the same as when I started. This processor has been incredible so far.
I'll keep you guys posted. I'm about to up the CPU to 3.5Ghz, so we'll see if I have to up the voltages, loosen the timings, etc.
