Who here got the OEM E8500 from Newegg recently that was on sale?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Anyways, I would like to comment that IF Newegg still has the Q817A's as depicted in the picture on the site, these are BEASTS! I picked one up, and it's a beast of an overclocker! right now it's prime/orthos stable @ 8 x 500fsb w/ 1.24v! It really puts my old e8400 to shame!

Also would like to mention that mine appears to have a functional DTS sensor. I'm loading at around 42-43c on water.

Hi. I think you would get the best answers by starting your own thread . However, one word of warning, I suggest you do not run 1.4v 24/7 as it can cause electro-migration and chip degredation. Its okay for suicides though and many will argue its okay full stop (although I am the cautious type and would still advise against it)

I won't use it all day long 24/7! I work all day long on a pc, maybe I play a bit, but one hour or two, not more! I wrote here since I got the same FPO as NCspecV81, sorry for that

Thats not a problem, its just your thread will get more attention that way. You will need to post what speed you are trying to aim for as well .

ok, the fact is this one, I've got an E8400 L807A532 that runs rock solit at 4080 (480*8.5) with 1.4v (I know it's high), I got this one sealed from a friend who does't OC and he asked me if I want to do an exchange, with L807 it won't boot at 500*8, this new one does, but crashes after 45min orthos/prime ... about speed I wish to reach, at least 4.2 (consider I've got 533 ram so I don't think I can go much higher with fsb)

You could try a lower multi and higher FSB (I know the RAM is the weakest link but worth a try). Have you also bumped the NB voltage up a bit from stock?
It might just be a case of needing more voltage to be completely stable.
post #10 of 13
yes, setted NB to 1.60V, don't remember SB, ram at 2.2V (5-5-5-18, for now I leave them @def) (rigth now I'm at work, can't tell you all the parameters). After how many hours of prime can I consider it RSolid?
Thanks
