I have the same components as you except I have an 8200, which I can't get to go higher than 3.1
Just upgraded from a e4500 to a e8400 E0. e4500 max o/c was 3.3 from 2.2 at 1.55v, wouldn't go any harder no matter how many volts I threw its way. max for this e8400 is 4.275 at max safe volts (currently 1.42v) nb and sb @ 1.6v, which I can prolly drop to 1.55v

make sure you guys have at least a fan blowing on the nb. Here are my settings:

vcore: 1.35 (might be a little high for 3.825 so will do some testing to lower)
mem: 1.2125 (425 so it's 1:1)
1.2ht: 1.35
nb: 1.45
sb: 1.55
cup vtt: 1.3

Remember though that every board and cpu are different and results vary. It took me months to get me to this point. For me, fsb above 445 would require more nb voltage and a third party chipset cooler. I have a spot cool blowing on my nb right now. With the stock heat pipes and a fan blowing on the nb, the fsb can go to around 430-435 pretty reliably, 435+ would be pushing it. Slimaxpower, what multi and fsb were you using for your e4500?

I have the same processor and mobo as you. I just got my system to 3.2 stable. my volts are.

vcore: 1.3
mem: auto
1.2: 1.3
nb: 1.55
sb: 1.5
vtt: 1.55

with the q6600 it seems like anything lower than 1.55 on the nb lowers stability quit a bit, just make you have an aftermarket cooler on your nb at the least, but you should get one for sb too. without one you wont get any kind of stability.

Aww lame, looks like i'm stuck at this speed with my nb as the bottleneck, I have an xfi card which makes it nigh impossible to fit aftermarket heatsinks, and a CM cosmos case, so no extra fans. And i'm sick of pumping money into this thing!
post #5248 of 5659
ok now ive screwed something up :S

set new volts and fsb, when i saved it rebooted the machine and said "updating new cpu and ram tables do not turn off" or something along those lines. It seemed to hang but i left it for 30 minuites and still didnt complete.

So i rebooted the machine and now it doesnt even boot up or POST. Tried resetting cmos jumper and took out battery and still no luck. Think i just screwed up this board lol. Any ideas?

After reading many of the previous posts, it seems that most of us have issues with getting the full potential from our cpu's. Those of us who do, seem to have power supplies that are rated under 600 watts. Maybe its just me, but without further testing with a beefier power supply, I cannot confirm. I can't wait to get my new power supply.

the other trend is proper NB/SB cooling.... Don't expect major overclocking without some adjustment(at your own risk) to these. I use evercools on both and can run NB/SB up to 1.6V easily. Though I don't have too. But I couldn't reach over 3.6 ghz CPU stable without them. They were a little tuff to install, so BE CAREFUL. I will try to post pics of my rig some day.LOL

525 Pages and counting for this great guide and thread.Im still using the same mobo for a long time no problems.Im sure this been a great mobo for some people and a lime for others.But if you read and learn some trick's you can get the best of all you'r componets.You can have a lot of fun in this complicate world of technology.Read and learn for all the new members and keep comming with new found's and trick's they all count.Thank's to Robilar and the group.
