e8400, playing with FSB and multi, no volt = higher core temps? Tags: Overclocking Last response: September 9, 2008 7:31 AM in Overclocking Share gabito September 9, 2008 2:49:55 AM hi guys, I'm going to get an e8400. Considering all the problems regarding the core temp sensors and what not, I'm not sure if I want to OC using voltage increments. Considering that, I'm also getting some Corsair Dominator 2x2gb 1066 ram. So, I would like to run it a 1:1, making 4.8ghz. (which seems highly unlikely). Let's say I just play with FSB and multiplier (I heard some people getting 7 x 450, other 8 x 475, etc) whatever the case, just using that, no voltage increase what so ever. So my question is: with just fsb and multiplier, will there me an increase in temperature? (since I can't rely on the sensors) I'm guessing that at higher clock speeds = more heat. But That's why I'm asking. Thanks!!
