yea,it wont boot up with stock voltage,so i added +.2 and its been running fine...even at 1000mhz



NB voltages are currently set to Auto,but i tried +.1 and it didnt help in any of the OC

what is yours set to?
my nb is set to 1.3

Nope...3.6ghz with a 8x multiplier will be much faster than 3.6ghz with a 9x multiplier.

FSB controls speed of the Northbridge too so all the links on the motherboard will be running faster

I'm wondering if your AC7 is seated properly. And if you applied the thermal grease properly for that E8400. That's a dual core/w heatspreader. Here's a good article on applying the thermal grease. It shows the rice thin application. I use twice that thickness just to be safe. http://www.arcticsilver.com/pdf/appi..._dual_wcap.pdf
And make sure the pins on the AC7 are all the way through and snapped. And you can raise the vcore above 1.28 safely. And take the NB off auto. Good luck.

Its the vcore dude. If you see one e8400 doing 4ghz at 1.25v, it doesnt mean yours will. e8400s vary WILDLY with vcore, some need 1.25 for 4ghz, others need 1.4v or more. No 2 chips are alike.

Yea,i will try to reseat it after i get some more thermal paste,last time i seated it i kinda ran out of termal paste,but i will go get some.

i will use a pea sized dot in the middle,mos tpeople seem to be getting god results.

i have come to learn that,it just sucks knowing that you paid the same amount of money for a substandard chip,i feel like i got ripped off!

i didnt have time to Test and OC's last night,but i will try after i get home from school.

i ran Orthos at stock clocks for 5 hours.

Another flaw is the consistent voltage drops that are well known for this company. Once you take that into consideration you can get more reliable clocks. The voltage is never even close in reality to what you set it to in the bios. My board has to be set at 1.5 or around there just to get a little over 1.35 which is "supposed" to be your base voltage.

You didn't get ripped off per say. Remember that they don't "authorize" over clocking. What you do to your chip over stock ratings is on yourself. This is why there is no standard cookie cutter for this. You will never see two systems with exactly the same setup down to batch numbers on ever piece of equipment. It's impossible to do so. Part of over clocking is the fun in achieving your goal. What fun is there if you click a few keys and away you go. You may as well be satisfied with stock settings if you just want to plug n' play.

well today i got a killer deal on a zalman cooler from frys,i seated it today and its working alot better then the Ac7,i HATE push pins!

For some reason my chip is Oc'ing ALOT better,could the orthos error be due to Temps? since that the only thing that i have changed?

this is what i currently got.

3.6 @ 1.23 (1.387 BIOS)
NB=Auto



im shooting it up to 3.8 now.
