I'm guessing that's the problem I'm having with my E8400 too?

YES
You nust disable speedstep in bios.
MIne runs 24/7 at 3.83 1.304 v
At 1.36 it runs 4.2 on air long enought to benchmark but i doubt it is stable.

Extremely fast degeneration above the recommended voltage spec on 45nm parts. Tricky on these forums burned his out running 1.416 24/7, and that in a matter of weeks. His overclock went unstable and he had to back off to stock speeds and eventually get a new chip.

So be very careful, and don't assume that temperature will always climb before your chip fries; you can very easily fry it on volts alone.

Try to loose up the timing on your ram. I assume your ram overclocks as well as you up your cpu FSB. Also try to up your vdimm a little bit as you overclock your ram higher.

I'm new to OCN so don't laugh if I sound like a noob . I have a question about the 8400. I've read in so many places about the temperature misread problems I want an opinion on my wolfsdale chip. I just built my rig (specs in siggy) and on idle, i get this.
Attachment 66487
Attachment 66486
and then when I OC to 3.7Ghz (410x9), i get this.
Attachment 66488
Attachment 66485
I'm just wondering if thats normal for the temperatures to be pretty much the exact same? I didn't play around with the Vcore too much when I OC. I'm not trying to get mine to over 4.0Ghz but I am worried about the temperatures. I haven't done any stress tests on it yet to test the stability but at idle, thats what I get. Any one have opinions on this? Thanks

hi, i think u should run your stress tests 1st, in order to get the whole picture.I dont think the temps you get are a missreading or incorect. Im thinking that way cause u say u didnt touch the Vcore up too much, and with that cooler its normal to get good temps

well first get SpeedFan that shows your temps accuratly!
Then Get Orthos and Test your stress and your temps...

If it gets to high... Time to upgrade your Heatsink.

IMPORTANT!!!


I am one of the people who helped fuel the 1.45v limit on these chips. Intel seems to have overstepped a little in this area! People all over have been experiencing these 45nm chips dying at that voltage VERY quickly. Please for your chips sake, keep the voltage BELOW 1.4v regardless of temps!!

Sorry for those who's chips were lost due to the information I helped to distribute!


Some people have ran these chips above 1.4v for a while now with no problems, however you are taking a 50 \\ 50 chance here.
