I'm currently running the E8400 3.0GHz Wolfdale on a P5Q-PRO motherboard, I've already overclocked it to about 3.8GHz on 1.264V. How do I check if its stable? Prime95, download under New Users Step 2.
No symptoms have shown up yet and its running very cool at about 40 degrees celcius. Since its so cool do you think I can maybe get it even further to maybe even 4.2? Depends on your motherboard and if your E8400 is a later model, maybe.
Also what would be the recommended core voltage if I were to bump it to 4.0GHz or slightly higher. The multipliers right now are at 422x9 I ran mine at 1.32V, but couldn't get stable over 4GHz, I had a C0 stepping.
