Good OC settings for 8400+P5N-D?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Okay, I've gotten it to 3.6ghz no problem. What should I set it to for 3.8ghz and 800mhz for the ram on my motherboard?

Just carry on increasing the FSB in 100mhz incriments until you get a BSOD or non-POST, then add a little more vcore and try pushing the FSB up higher. Make sure to write down all your stable CMOS settings because you may have to reset the CMOS at any time. I recommend you do not go above 1.365v for the vcore, 45nm processors are more vulnerable to high voltages, also if you have vcore set to auto, manually set it to 1.25v or whatever stock VID is, because auto voltage usually takes the vcore too high for the 45nm range.
