How are the new E8400's?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm just curious since I've had very little time lately to research the newer batches of the E8400's. Are the temps more accurate? Do they OC as well?

Get a good CPU cooler and you can get it to 4GHz no problem. With liquid probably ~4,5 I'm not sure but I think you can get it to 5GHz on liquid.

So, they're basically like mine (the first batches)?

Well I'm running water and probably just retarded but cannot get a FSB stable above 460MHz. I know that my RAM will post at 1040MHz using a low multi and a different Ratio than 1:1 meaning a 500FSB would be possible. 4GHz was a total piece of cake to reach. Low volts and everything. After that I hit a huge brick wall :-/ Higher NB, messing with the GTL ref volt, Vcore up to 1.4v nothin. :-(

I still love it though. Brought life back to my 3870X2. Phenom make it cry.

Good overclocker, most have dead Temp Diodes and they DO not like volts.

I thought they were supposed to have that fixed on the newer ones

I own a new one and I can tell you intel hasn't fixed the sensors issue... still unreliable

Hey Kaxx, from what I've seen they're the same. If you're lucky you'll get one that OCs to 4.0 with under 1.3 volts, if not you'll get one that OCs to 3.8 under 1.36volts.
Read the E8400/E8500 post on xtremesystems and you'll see.

Hey tete, What are your sensors reading at idle and at load? What voltage you giving it?
