The E8400 is still running at 4Ghz @ 1.3V. Rock solid. The Wolfdale's are sick little chips! I can't believe how much better they are than the Conroe's!

It should do it easy, I got mine to boot @3.8 with just bumping it to 2.75 and changing the fsb. I know it will do 4+ but I really don't care I run it @3.6 24/7.

I think they've been discontinued.

EDIT: Yep, google pulls all kinds of hits on it.
