What to expect out of a Q8400? - Page 4

post #31 of 34
Mine is currently at 3.2GHz and 1600 FSB. I did add .1v to the FSB but haven't touched the Vcore.
It's been folding for almost 2 days straight now and highest CPU temp on any core is 56°C with room temp being around 27°C

Another Q8400 owner,glad to see ya! Your settings are exactly what I think "Despair" should be able to replicate with his GA-P45T-ES3G.Sound doable to you?

Yea, and you and i both know there's a reason you moved it to the UD3P.

you got it! I wanted to see how far I can take this thing.I don't think 4.2ghz is all that bad for a cpu with a reputation for being a poor overclocker.I have zero complaints and the UD3P is hands down the best 775 intel chipset mobo IMO.
