depends entirely on the chip and cooling....

It might be possible with a water cooling system, but I wouldn't set CPU voltage so high without it.

Might be possible? lol. My e8500 has seen over 1.52V during benches and was 58C full load...but I am on watercooling, yes.

The majority of wolfdales can easily be cooled at 1.4V with air......but yes, it does depend on the chip. Some have better contact with the IHS than others, and some just run hotter (particularly low VID chips).

It's easy for water cooling system, but without it, enjoy the overheating CPU.

OK, time to quit bickering over whether or not the E8400 is fragile to voltage, or easily cooled, or any of that.

The fact is, you should go about it the same way as any other CPU, you just have a better chance at good results, since the E8400 is such a good, proven CPU for OCing. Just slowly raise the FSB, keeping an eye on your RAM volts, timings, and speeds; your NB and SB voltages; CPU voltage, stability, etc; and chances are you can get 4GHz with a decently low Voltage. But to assume you can just plug it into your mobo and get 4GHz by plugging in a couple numbers is unrealistic, and not the smartest way to go about it. No point in killing a $200 CPU because you aren't patient enough to take it slow, like all of the rest of us do.

Sure it won't from cooling.
The die itself is what'll die from over-voltage.

sure it will.....

been clocking wolfdales since they came out and never seen any sign of degradation. Sold plenty of them on to people and they are still happily running them, some at even better overclocks than I was able to get.

1.4 is not dangerous, not in the least. I still can't believe people think it is :/
