1) That Q8400 is clocked lower, and has less L2 cache then your E8400, it will be SLOWER in games. I would only recommend a Q9xxx series quad, but ONLY if you can get it for under $200(good lucky with that lol).

2) Adding tape to these two pins sometimes takes the FSB from 333 to 400 on E8xxx chips(which would bump your chip from 3.0->3.6 ghz)... 2.JPG

Your board doesn't look like it's very good for overclocking, so even that probably won't work.
Sorry bud, but you're gonna have to either:
A) find a REALLY good deal on a Q9xxx quad or
B) save up and build a new 1155 or AM3+ rig.

OR you could just deal with not-so-perfect frame-rates in games.

BTW that cpu you linked to is not actually available, the "add to cart" button is grayed out.

What exactly do you mean by doing this can bump my FBS?

There are two contacts blocked by a brown tape that hangs over the CPU PCB edge

What would you do just remove the tape and that's all?

The E8xxx chips have a FSB speed of 333mhz(check in cpu-z to see for yourself). By adding the tape, you trick part of the motherboard into thinking it is a Q9xxx chip and it sets the FSB to 400mhz. The cpu gets its frequency by multiplying the FSB clock, so at stock it is 333*9=3000mhz, but with the pins blocked it's 400*9=3600mhz tongue.gif

uhhh, the non-conductive kind?
Any kind of tape will work i think, as long as it isn't a metal tape. I would use black vinyl electrical tape since it is made specifically to block electricity.

You seem to know more then me with what i have right now this is what my Cpu-z show

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1848094

and the Ram speed part just looks really wrong ain't it suppose to be like 1:1 or something.
