Default Re: Yorkfield & Wolfdale Overclocking Thread

I recently got myself a E8500 instead of the E6600 and i currently run it at 3.6ghz with 1.28v.Beyond this point i get stability issues and i have tried upping the voltage to 1.31v without much of a difference.These boards have always been kinda iffy but as far as i know most do atleast 400fsb.I'm at 380 now and stuck there,how much can you push the vcore safely ? 400 fsb would net me 3.8ghz on a 9.5 mp and that would suit me just fine,unsure if i can get there safely though .There's been so many different variations of the 680i boards and not many of the settings seem to be the same for each vendor/ manufacturer.I'm thinking of just forgetting about clocking it further,be happy with the 3.61 ghz and ditch the nvidia chipset for the next build,what do you guys think ?
