GA-P35-DS3L Overclock Settings

Just wondering what others have their voltage\fsb\multiplier settings at for their personal overclocks.

I've been working on mine for the last few days and can't seem to get 4.0GHZ to be stable for more than 5 hours without going over the intel-specified max voltage of 1.3625V. I am able to get a stable 3.8ghz with 1.275vcore and +1 ddr voltage.

Successful for 6 hours, so far:

CPU E8400

CPU Mhz 3807
FSB 423
Multiplier 9
1.275 vcore

Memory list in sig rig:
+1 ddr voltage
1:1 fsb:D ram ratio

Other voltage settings auto\untouched.

I let mine go up to 1.45V - the implied max voltage for E8400 by Intel. Granted, I have TEC.

Have you tried upping your MCH and FSB (VTT) voltages? That should help you achieve stability at higher FSB settings.

Yea I tried bumping them each to +1, I didn't want to go crazy with that unless it was def. required.

I am 100% stable with 3.8ghz @ 1.275v. Prime95 ran for 24hrs-- also did a 3dmark06 run and played Bioshock during the test. I may just keep it as it is, I don't think that .2 mhz will get me anything noticeably further than what I already have.

That's why I said implied.

The max volt is how long you want to cpu to last. 1.8v. Fine. It won't last very long.
