My E8400 Overclock

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Started overclocking my E8400 (only on stock cooling though for now ), anyways, im at 3600Mhz (400x9) with the ram unlinked @ 850Mhz, and well... does this look right for my board and CPU?

3600mhz (stock cooling, max temp is 62C running orthos for 5 hours so far)
400x9 bus/multi

NB at 1.40v
RAM at 1.85v
vCore at 1.23v (actual)

and what is CPU VTT voltage used for? I have no idea so right now its on auto :S

Nice OC, as bout as high as you'd want to push it with stock cooler, 62C is a tad high for my likings. Very easy to reach 4.0GHz+ with aftermarket CPU cooler - take a look at the Zalman CNPS9700LED - my mates using your CPU and the aforementioned cooler and can reach 4.0GHz without breaking a sweat.

Fantastic CPU, I'm looking at getting one myself - sick of AMD

Good luck

The temp is high for my preference as well, I just had to use the stock for now 'cus I built this for as cheap as possible, I'm thinking about dropping the clocks back to stock till then, man the NB gets really really hot on Intel boards (not so the case with AMD)

As for your NB, I've seen a few Intel overclockers use a fan to cool it. Not sure how effective it is but you've got an Antec 900 (good choice btw, I want the 1200) which has plenty enough room to chuck another fan in Good luck!

Xigmatek HDT-s1283 One of the best cooler for the price. Good Bang For The Buck and it'll cool your cpu pretty well.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I wasnt looking for a heatsink recommendation, more just advice for overclocking, like do those specs look right for my overclock

ram volts seem a little low, as the normal is 2.0v. any higher on the overclock and you might start seeing bsod.
