Personally a 9minutes 20sec video is just so big. Who likes to waste their 9 minutes watching some cam recorded video.

No disrespect but for starters you should have just raised the multiplier. like if its 200, make it 210. You should be able to increase till i guess 240 easily. Push it till 3.5 like that. with more experienced 'tinkering' 4Ghz is easy.

Watching some Professional video and experimenting without knowledge will lead to disaster. Get some good advice from P5K Deluxe owners. Still whatever clock you stretch it too, your PC will be Bottlenecked by it. Your 2 5770's are much powerful.

Rather than laughter, why don't you piss yourself with some knowledge. At idle, without all the speed stepping and c1e and yadda yadda disabled, it lowers itself to the lowest multiplier possible, so a stock clocked E8400 will go from 3.0ghz, to 2.0ghz.

As to your overclock, following a youtube video is your first failure. Search this site for E8400 overclocking information. LEARN how to overclock. There are two people that burn up their equipment. First group is the people that know how to overclock but push their hardware to the ABSOLUTE limit and it dies. The second group are the ones that read guides, thinks what worked for one works for all and just plug in what they're told.

Please, do some research and best wishes!

Good. Pushing to 4.0 will require more knowledge from P5K owners. Or read some guides and learn them properly.

Here but i still pissed myself.

Lol, that's okay. Like i said we all start somewhere and i happened to start at the wrong end lol and got it wrong.

Yeah i'll have a look around see what i can find and hopefully get to the 4.0GHz

QFT, also thanks for backing me up (intentionally or otherwise). Anyway, Lee, don't mention it. That's what we're here for.

He did not downclock it, it's running at stock speed in that link. Intel Speedstep lowers the CPU multiplier.

Intel Speedstep lowers the CPU multiplier from 9 to 6, hence 2.0Ghz.

His default FSB is 333, not anywhere near 200.

For an E8400, 400 (FSB) x 9 (CPU multi) should be easy. If the revision of the CPU is E0 this can be done on stock voltage (around 1.25v) and the CPU will run at 3.6Ghz.
