i'm about to buy an e8500, i'll get ddr 800 ram.,
so, i should have no problem setting the fsb to 400 right? heatwise.
could i just leave the vcore alone? what is the default?
If you get a good heat sink, you won't have any problem. The default is ~1.15v. You won't be able to get it to 3.8ghz on default voltage though. You could probably get it to 3.4 or maybe 3.5 on default voltage before you start having stability problems.
