See sig!

I only added about .0112 volts to stock voltage to get my E8400 to 3.6ghz. That's as high as I've tried it for now but I'm sure it could go higher.

Well I just took the plunge on the E3110 for $180, supposed to be the same thing as the E8400, so I'll post back soon how high I can overclock it!

4.65 ghz at 1.42v
Evga 680i T1. Oem Active Cooling. Ocz Flexx -XLC pc-9200 2x1gb 1026ddr2 @ 2.3v default (auto) timings.
8800 gts 512 mb, antec neo power 550w. Koolance pc-1026 (lianli with a tripple radiator).
Only watercooling the cpu. with an old koolance 3/8th block.
Load temps were over 54c... way to hot.

I maintained these settings for 2 days. However if i Attempted to overclock my videocard concurrently, it would never make it through a 3dmark run. It would pass the cpu tests, however. When the cpu is not overclocked i get close to 14k 3dmarks running the card at 740mhz and 2100 memory.

I am thinking that I'm having voltage drop issues, and possibly heat related issues on the mosfets, and northbridge.

The odd part is that besides initial bootup, and running some photoshop filters, is that I cannot notice any difference in the usability of the system. I am for all intensive purposes gpu bound.

But its a great overclocker... I think I got a good chip. Most people seem to get 3.6ghz at stock voltage, and 3.8-4.2.

I'll be getting some new w/c gear, along with lapping the cpu, will hopefully find me in the 4.7ghz area with stability. I'll report my finding in the next few weeks.


Upgrading to a pair of swiftech radiators, ek blocks on the m/b, an upgraded 2nd mosfet heatsink, d-tek fuzion. Possibly watercooling the memory if necessary. After I'm done measuring my e-penis, i'll go be going for silence. Hoping to have my system at below 25 dbs at idle.

hope this helps. Get it, its a great processor

Wow, that's an awesome overclock!

I'm hoping for a 1GHz overclock to 4.0 GHz and I'll be happy. I got a 1GHz overclock from my e6750 and it's been a champ!

Well I got my e3110 yesterday and immediately clocked to 4.05GHZ at 1.35V Orthos stable with an overnight run. So I'm happy! I may push for more later but 4 GHZ is what I was hoping for.

One thing is the the Core Temp Sensors appear to be stuck. They don't budge under an Orthos load. Someone suggested grabbing the latest BIOS for my MOBO and then have two newer ones so I'll do that.

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.
