Probably not at 1.272v and 48º under load.

The 4.2 GHz clock is what I run 24/7, however it's capable of hitting 4.6 GHz without passing 1.3625v. My board ate another 4 GB of Ballistix 8500 so right now I'm limited to what my generic PC6400 can handle, however once I get my RAM back from RMA and have my board tweaked, I hope to up my 24/7 speed to at least 4.4 GHz.

Overall, an amazing chip, just like the E6750.

E8*00 series processors are just a bandwagon! Jump off! Quads are sick!
We're referring to the Xeon e3110, though.

I have a question that I forgot to ask: with my ram and mobo, what might I be capable of with the e6x50, e8400, or even the Xeon e3110?

hehe the text is all big and obnoxious. But I don't wanna be buried!

Probably 3.6-4.0 for the e6x50, and roughly 4.4 for the Xeon and e8400.

I can see now that even though the e8400 might be superior to the 65nm in many ways, I might be much better off getting the e6x50 (prolly the e6850!) because I'd be able to worry about the voltage a lot less, since I lack overclocking experience! Ah HA! I think I get it now. Cool!

In other words, it sorts sounds like the e8400 is better off in the hands of an intermediate to advanced overclocker, and not for a beginner like me. Now that makes perfect sense.

Thank you!
The e8400 has changes to its processing that allow it to be about 8% more efficient than the e6xxx series (65nm cpus). You can OC an e8400 easier than an e6xxx series because it is so cool.

The ONLY rule you need to follow when OCing the e8400 (other than temps, which is minor), is never to go over 1.36v at load, which will be shown to you in CPU-Z.

Wow, that sounds easy enough.

What about vdroop? Should I consider it, or should I go with what the actual is after vdroop?

ROFL!

400mhz FSB and 1:1 is your best bet. You will never [let me repeat], never see 4.4ghz with a Q4 that has a 1333mhz bus on a 680i-> PERIOD, and will extremely lucky if you could even hit ~460mzh FSB with the e8400 [as everyone knows what difficulties the 680's have with higher FSB's..stupid nvidia NB ]

As I stated earlier in this thread, you are going to be limited by your mobo, so getting a 1333 cpu is NOT going to be very beneficial to you if you are lookin for the highest stable clock speed.

:doh I'm speshul. I didn't even look at his mobo, i just pegged what the chips should be capable of on their own.
