have you tried 1.625 at 445fsb
I can't get it to exactly 1.3625v, but I was
able to get it to exactly 1.360v. But it wasn't stable at 4.0GHz, so I lowered it back to 1.352v, according to cpu-z, and back down to 3.9GHz.
But as for being ok at 1.37v, I'm not so sure about that:

Here are some of the links:
Tricky Running 1.45v vcore: Oc/benchie: E8400 - Page 5 !!!
Tricky's chip no longer stable after 1.45v: E8400 Crapped out! YAY!!!!
Not only that, but this page on Intel.com
seems to imply that the extreme limit is 1.3625v.
I'm not saying that ericoed is implying that one shouldn't go over 1.3625, but after seeing Intel's e8400 page, I'm not so sure about it yet.
I'd love to bump the voltage up to 1.37 just to see if it becomes stable, but I worry a lot about how sensitive this chip is said to be with voltages.
