I was really hoping for 5ghz with w/c but alas it seems I can't get above 4.5ghz.
I've tried vcores of up to 1.37v with nb at 1.45v but no go. Also for some reason hwmonitor and core temp are giving me temps of 44C with no fluctuations at all. I don't think its reading the temps at all. Is there another good temp reader out there?

Yay.
Guess I jumped the gun a little too soon. After futzing about in the bios I'm in 4.5ghz territory.

Throw the vcore to 1.4v, that's what WC'ing is for

Thats funny, I have only had spectacular performance out of an Nvidia chip set.


I think the problem is that its an E8600 tbh. I have seen many more E8400s clock higher. I ran my E8400 under water at 4.62Ghz for a few months without any problems. E8600s for some reason just don't clock proportionally to their little brothers.

What kind of volts did you throw at it? Will the chip stand 1.45v?

I wouldn't throw more than 1.45v load for 24/7 use.

For benching it's fine though, even though intel max is ~1.3625v

dude, you aren't lucky to get 4.5GHz, that is almost expected of the E8xxx series. I, like you, have hit a wall after that. I can get 512x9, I can get 533x8.5, I can also get 550x8. But I can not get 533x9.... You haven't pushed your vCore as high as you can, though.

In my attempts at 4.8GHz I have gone as high as 1.55vCore, 1.44vtt, 1.73PLL, 1.46v NB... I have tried skewing... loosened my timings.... no avail...

If its on water crank up the vcore and see how high it can go. I hit 5 ghz on my e8500 E0 with 1.66v. It was only cranked up that high for short bench runs...

Well I got 4.7ghz with 1.45v. I'm just gonna stay here and be happy with it. I posted at 5ghz with 1.54v but after a while got a blue screen. 1.45v won't kill the chip will it? It won't be on 24/7.

It will be seriously degraded over time.

On water 1.425v for 24\\7 will only degrade a tiny bit, and that won't happen till long after you decide to upgrade. These chips last a long time at stock, and safe voltages. If you knock 2-3 years off the life, it will still last like 7 years


That is all as long as temps are safe. WC helps. I run my E8600 @ 4.5Ghz with 1.28v at load.
