Taking e8400 to 4ghz?

i have a e8400+actic pro 7+as5 , gigabyte p45 ds3l, 4gb ddr2 800mhz 2.0v patriot extreme 5-5-5-12, hd 4670 ddr4 @ 780/1100 (upgraded fan idle 40), 19 inch wide screen dvi dell(1440x900) and im a noob overclocking and im @ 3.6ghz probably because its the easiest oc there is.

curent values :

i left the speed step thing on so it wont heat up when im not doing nothing so right now idle is 46-48 @ 2.4 with 1.008v, bus speed 400mhz, rated fsb 1600mhz (cpu z) when im on load temps are around 58

in bios:

advaced intelegent tweak:

cpu host en
c.i.a 2 dis
MCH frec latch auto
system memory mult 2.00D
Dram timing auto

cpu vcore 1.212v normal
cpu PLL 1.550v auto
cpu Reference 0.805v auto

MCH core 1.10v auto
MCH Reference 0.805v auto
ICH i/o 1.55v auto
Dram voltage 1.800v 2.00v (my rams voltage)

Advanced bios:

c1/c2e state support: dis
cpu thermal monitor 2: dis
c1e cpu enhanced halt: en
cpu eist funtion: en
virtualization: en

how can i do 4ghz if i can?

  1. I wouldn't try going 4 Ghz with your current set up. If you are getting 46-48 degrees Celsius running 1.008V then you probably need more airflow going into the case. Also you need faster ram. In terms of temps, put it this way, I have the e8400 running at 1.25V at 3.6GHz and my idle temps are in the low 30s. What are your CPU voltages running load?

    like 58 C

    Voltages not temps.

    on full load(3.6ghz) voltage is 1.16 and

    Temperature C

    60 56
  5. Your really lucky. Those are great load voltages at 3.6Ghz. Get faster ram, better air intake and bump your CPU voltage up a little and away you go.

    :( i cant get faster ram
