also is there a way to disable the speedstep? thats what makes it automatically raise and lower the multiplier right depending on load? isn't that bad for ocing?

I never disabled my speedstep, and i have quite a big OC on my E7200. Disabling it does nothing to my OC. (There's a bit of discussion in the link in my sig about the multiplier).

And yeah. 8*00's should be able to get close or over 4GHz fairly easily.
And I have this bookmarked: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/22...perature-guide
Really helpful. So the temp limit for yours is up around 80 deg. 50 is actually cool for that series.

i see you have the same mobo as me, do you have a newly flashed bios or anything?

It is really bad for overclocking. You should definitely set it disabled -mode. I think it's the one thing what have made your E8400 unstable.

Do you have proof?
And he never said it was unstable, he was worried about the temps.

Why are you using easy tune?
Software Ocing is no good, no matter what.

Use your BIOS, that's why it's there.

Keep it under 65 to be safe.

personally, i dont go over 70C, it seems safe to me.
currently i am running 3.8 on the e8400 at 66C load, it seems sweet as

I found 3.8Ghz to be the sweet spot for fps to heat ratio, but that was with a C0 so things might have changed.
Also overclocking in the bios is the key to a stable system.
