Ah well 3.8 is fine for me.
Also how are your temps?
Well it turns out one of my sticks of memory was bad so I'm kind of stuck for now.
I just threw in some GSkill DDR2-800 that I had laying around and I pushed the CPU up to 3.4 with absolutely no problems. I'm not going to mess with it until I get that ram replaced though. I've always been a little suspicious that I had a memory problem but I narrowed it down to just one of the four sticks today using memtest.
Honestly, I wish the price of memory didn't go through the roof (comparatively) recently. I'd like to get a 2x2Gb set of 1066. I think using 4x1 has always been problematic for overclocking for some reason.
EDIT: woot... got the E6750 in the other system to 3.2Ghz easy on an OCZ Vendetta cooler. It runs pretty hot (58C) in OCCT so I think I'll back it down to 3Ghz and drop the voltage a bit. I think that'll add a bit more oomph to the CPU over the 2.66Ghz stock clocks.
