hitting 3.66 on an E8400?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, the last time i did some oc'ing was on an amd 2500+ with a really basic bios - all i had to do was adjust the FSB and ratio and bump up the vcore a bit and all was working..

just bought a new e8400 system and had a look at the BIOS and it's a bit confusing, so many more settings etc to change!

was wondering if someone who might have similar setup or knowledge of the mobo/bios might be able to post the settings i'd need to hit 3.66?

specs:

Asus P5KR mobo
Intel E8400
2gb OCZ Reaper ddr2-1066mhz @ 5-5-5-15
arctic freezer7 pro
xfx 8800gt

i'm guessing i'll wanna use 340/341fsb x 9 is that right?

I'd just raise the FSB to 400, set the multi to 9X and manually set your RAM voltage and see if you can get into windows like that. If not set your CPU voltage to 1.3 and that should do it.

What is your mobo?

I'm currently OC'ing right now and so far got my E8400 at 3.6 stable with 1.25v.

400x9 multiplier

turn any smart fan controls off in the bios so your AC Freezer 7 runs at 100%, it should run at about 2k RPMs.

My temps at load are about 52C.
