E8400 Winter Overclock

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well I've been gone for like... 3.5 months? I'm back! Oh no..

Anyways, I miss my old E8400 and its overclocking capabilities.

So I figure.. It's winter time. How about buying another E8400, a car radiator (I can get this free as my pap owns a garage and we scrap alot of cars), a good water block, some tubing, adapters, and a pump?

I'll probably use an antifreeze/water mix or straight alcohol so it won't freeze.

I'm looking to push past 6-7Ghz with this setup.

Sound possible?

6-7GHz on water?

Lucky if you hit 5.5GHz.

You should use DICE or LN2 for 6GHz+.
Good luck though.

While I'm no expert, I don't think 6-7GHz will be possible on liquid/water cooling.

Anything is worth a try though, right?

EDIT: Just to make it clear, the radiator will be outside of the house.
