What should I expect to overclcock my chip to?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Over spring break I will be moving my rig into an antec 900 with all optional fans added and installing my xigmatek s1283 with the bolt-through kit. I'd like to start overclocking at that time, but no idea where to start. my chip is an e8400 E0 revision with a 1.25 vid

Nice rig you got there!

4GHz flat should be a piece of cake, with (I'm guessing) the max realistic OC on air being somewhere around 4.1-4.3GHz... Depends on your specific chip though, so don't quote me!
At long last...

yea personally I don't do that now.....My old rig fried one day when I wasn't home.......I ran that rig 24/7, never turned it off, and I ran it into the ground...That's why it fried, and because of running it all the time, it happened without me seeing it.

My sig rig is only on when I am using it, or when I'm home in general, because I use it all the time.......So I guess what I'm trying to say is, running it 24/7 is really a bad habit......

It's basically like running your cars motor in the driveway while you sleep....plus think of the electricity your burning for no reason at all......

Yep, many users here have run their E8400 above 4.0Ghz 24/7... as long as you don't go over 1.3625V, you're good to go

isn't it the stress of turning it off and on just as bad on the components?

electricity isn't a big deal for me, i live on a college campus so i don't pay utilities.

You should be able to see 4.0 safely and easily. Like a previous poster said, keep it under 1.36 just to be safe. A lot of people will tell you that's a myth, but it can't hurt to set your limit somewhere.

There is also a chance you got one from a bad batch, in which case 4.0 on reasonable voltage wouldn't be possible. Good luck either way.
