E8400 Overclock

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've just overclocked my E8400 to 3.60Ghz on 1.262v.
I had to run my 667ddr2 at 800mhz. But that's alright because it's sold as being able to overclock that high.

Do you guys think I could get more out of it?

I only got a 350 point increase in 3dmark06.

I don't even know what the stock voltage for this CPU is.

Yes, you can def. get more out of It. I've read someone got 4.2 on air.

You can push these chips to 1.36V, but not more then that

Pushing it further would mean running the RAM out of recommended spec wouldn't it?

I'll see how it goes for now at 3.6ghz.

Strange that my 3dmark06 score is so low. 9690 or whatever it is.

Should I attempt to overclock my 8800gt? It's still at 600/1800
