ok,for example if i get Asrock G41C-GS will that do better?i know its cheap one,but atleast i can get ddrIII inside and twice of ram )

and can i use together ddr2 and ddr3?( i guess no)

nah.prime95 stoped.- FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
so im back to 3.51ghz.
any ideas? )

I peaked at 3.4-3.6 with E7200. Well at least it's kinda stable. It was the dreaded second batch. (They had manufacturing defect in that batch.)

Look at the 3rd rig in my sig.

I have an e5400 at 3.6ghz and I have pushed it further but the amount of voltage and the increase in heat is not worth the 24/7 performance.

It is on an EVGA 750i SLI motherboard (Not the FTW edition)

The overclock you have on it now is quite good especially on G31.

Spending more at this point for another motherboard is not really worth it. If a 3.6ghz e5400 is not able to keep you happy, a 4.0ghz e5400 won't either.

Do not spend anymore on that CPU is what I am trying to say.

Glad we pulled in some people with experience on a E5400!

At least you got 3.51 Ghz stable, which is pretty good.

I was thinking DDR2 voltage is lower than the voltages that you listed, I was wrong. I have no idea what I was thinking with the RAM. Sorry.

Also, no. You don't have to reinstall Windows if you get a new motherboard. You will just have to reinstall your motherboard drivers. Like the guy said above me, at this point if you want better hardware your better off just building a new PC.

DDR memory is not backwards compatible. If you have a DDR3 motherboard, you can only use DDR3 and nothing else. ect.

Above 70C you will have to worry about damage. So 60 C is hot, but still perfectly safe.

Running prime95 is enough load.

I have heard of people having bugs with CPU-Z, but I don't know what to tell you. You could do some searching and see if you can dig up anything. Some motherboard manufacturers will release a Windows software utility for monitoring voltage and temperature. You could see if your motherboard manufacturer offers such a thing.

You are also limited to a 800mhz fsb speed with that chip. It would be hard to push it further without applying a lot of extra voltage. If I were trying to push that chip faster though I would work on finetuning my gtl voltage percentages and probably bump my cpu vtt up a notch or 2. You can pick up an used E8400 E0 off of ebay for around 45-50 dollars and have a very very good chance of hitting 4+ghz plus you have a higher multiplier so the board won't be pushed as much. You would also have 6mb l2 cache verses the e5400 2mb l2 cache and a higher fsb of 1333mhz.
