Question about E8400 OC

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have been hearing/reading something about the 8400's not OC as well anymore (the newer batch) and I am almost hesitant to get one. I would like to get 4.0 with a bit of room to spare in voltage. Also is the 1.37 volts the limit on these things that we can go to without frying them? I have an E6600 at 3.4 right now but would like to run 4.0 24/7. Thanks for any advice.

I would go for the e8500 even though it has a slightly bigger price tag. It clocks very high with its 9.5x multi compared to the e8400s 9x. It is possible to get up to 4.5ghz on air from what I've seen and read.
