This forum is kinda discouraging -- you can overclock the Q8200 and here is some stable results, I just wanted to see how much further others have gotten.
Definitely I can push my CPU more just wanted to keep voltages as low as i can.
I used both an Asus P45 mobo and now i'm on an Asus X48 and have plenty of room to push voltages.
I think one key thing the overclockers at Tom's has done wrong with their review is to limit their RAM ... their FSB to DRAM ratio was like 1:2 .... what were they thinking...
this is an old thread but it shouldn't end one sided!
