To get my E8500 to load windows @ >3.8GHz I need to increase the Vcore to 1.42V.
For >4.3GHz it needs 1.5V at least.
Are these reasonable voltages?

My other settings are
NB - 1.26V
FSB - 1.29

It's high in the sense that the chips usually will use quite a bit less to get the same clocks, but it's not high in the sense that your going to fry it.

You really should only start having to increase voltage when you are in the 4.0 range. For that clock voltage should be say, 1.36x/ 1.38x. Try upping your NB voltage one notch and dropping your vcore a notch.

No they are not reasonable voltages unless you're looking for kill run benches. What's more important is your vtt voltage, which cannot go above 1.36.

It's actually 1.45. Your vcore seems high to me. Have you tried to lower it and raise vtt or NB volt's?
