Hey guys, I've been lurking this forum for awhile now in order to learn how to overclock my rig, but I'm stuck at 3.4ghz. Any advice to help me OC to ~4.0ghz?

Intel e8400 Wolfdale (3.0ghz)
4gb Ripjaws (2x2) DDR 2 1200MHZ
nforce 680i Motherboard
750watt Antec Earth Watts PSU
PNY GTX 260 xlr8 graphics card

try to slang that board for a few bucks and pick up a nice cheap p45 board. I struggled overclocking my 750i ftw for ages, and finally picked up a p5q pro turbo from asus. ran my e8500 at 4+ all day on low voltage.

Short of that, try upping your NB voltage a bit, and maybe your CPU FSB voltage
