I just landed an E8400 on eBay for $167.70 shipped the other day. Not sure what batch number or anything, though.

'cause it seems tempting.

Also, which board will allow me to get this far? I was thinking about the DFI P35 or P45 T2RS
If anyone's doing 4.7ghz on an e8400, that guy is definitely rich. Though these beasts overclock too much, they cant handle it, the core's not meant for it as a 45nm fab @ 4.7(high voltage) can fry easily than a >65nm fab @ 5.0(phase cooled). Lower fab's are better cooled(lower voltages), but not easily stable.
Conclusion: They can handle high voltages like their grandpas(q6600, e6750 for example)do!

what in the hell are you referring to as a "fab"?

People can hit 3.5ghz on stock cooling, you get a $35 Tuniq Tower and heat is no longer an issue untill your over 4.15ghz

Are you a complete and utter moron? People can hit 3.5ghz on stock cooling, you get a $35 Tuniq Tower and heat is no longer an issue untill your over 4.15ghz
Fab means fabrication process and i'm sorry i mentioned it as 4.0Ghz instead of 4.7Ghz my bad, i'll edit it right now.

well like I said, 4-4.1-4.3 are really nice numbers. So My next CPU might very well be an E8400, even if it's a newer chips

I've heard that dual cores are faster than quad in GAMES (not multitasking). I dont know how many fps.


Also what board do you suggest me for 1333/1600mhz fsb to hit 4.1-4.3 ? I was thinking about the DFI P35 T2RS, but then changed for a DFI P45 T2RS

There's also the X48 T3RS, and the LT series, but those are really expensive

I am new to overclocking, I have played around but never got serious, I just got a custom rig with the E8400, and the board is an ASUS P5E-VM HDMI, no graphics card just using onboard graphics which are sweet on this board High def no problem. I can get this thing running stable at 4.05ghz with no issue withought a graphics card, temps low, got a couple extra fans and a heavy duty heat sink in it, as well I got a strong 600 watt PSU, u got to get a great power source to push em nicely, I got my voltages to 1.36, and my northbridge up as well as my ram running at 2.0. It can get up to 5.0ghz with a dedicated graphics card, for sure get a nice PSU, a nice ASUS or Gigabyte board so u have crash free bios for overclocking and alot of nice bios tweaks to try out overclocking. For me to be a rookie and get this thing from 3.0ghz stock to 4.0ghz with a few tweaks here and there this thing rocks. Runs flawless and fastest PC i have ever had.

Just a little bit curious how a dedicated gpu will get your E8400 up to 5.0ghz?
