Hey OCN,
My problem is, I can't push my processor past 3.5GHz, no matter what combinations of FSB and multi's I try. I had it get as far as the Vista boot logo, but then blue screened on me. That was with a 3.8GHz clock. Any suggestions? I've attached pictures of temps, the CPU-Z, all while running Prime95 on it. Any help would be much appreciated!

Take out two of your ram sticks and try again if you are benching only. It should give you a bit more headroom. Looks like you need to just up your vcore if you want to raise the clock.

I had to push my vcore to 1.375 in bios 1.35 idle 1.36 load to get mine stable at 350x10.5. Now I am stuck there because I don't want to raise my vcore anymore than I have. My ram is faster than yours though. What do you have your memory divider set at?

generally, e7x00 needs more voltages than the e8x00 series. an e8400 only needs 1.29-1.34 to hit 4.0 whereas an e7x00 need about 1.38-1.42 to hit 4.0. believe me, if you want to get 3.8+, you'll need to bump ur vcore 1.38+ provided you have a motherboard that has less vdroop
