punkinator, you forgot to factor in the phase of the moon and high tide.
Unfortunately, the the E8400 with its relatively high 333 MHz FSB is a poor candidate for overclocking in a G41M-ES2L. The G41 is an economy chipset. The G41M-ES2L is a great little motherboard (I have two). But the FSB on both won't run much past 340 MHz. At least mine don't.
They are not bad overclockers with a CPU chip with a comparatively high internal multiplier and relatively low FSB such as the E5200 or E6300 series. I have one with an E6500 Wolfdale (266MHz X 11) running at 3.66 GHz (333 X 11). But you will be limited by how far you can push the G41 FSB.
Go through the guides. Then take your core voltage off Auto and set your memory voltage to factory recommended values. Change the System Memory Multiplier from AUTO to 2.00, 2.00B, or 2.00D - whichever you need to set the Memory Frequency to twice the FSB. Then when you increase the FSB, the memory clock will rise in in proportion with it. At an FSB of 333 MHz, your memory clock should be at 667 MHz.
Download CPU-Z to check your FSB:RAM ratio. It should be a 1:1 ratio.
I'll be surprised if you can reach 3.2 GHz. OTOH, it won't bother me much to be wrong.
I have change to my old E5300 again for my o.c.
But it look my mobo not to good for high OC.
Max i can get with G41M-ES2L is ~3.15Ghz (10.5 x 300) stable..Pass 25 test Intel Burn Test v2.50 with max. stress..
But that will be ok for now until i get my new mobo..
I just want to knw..
Can i get a little bit high about ~3.30 - 3.45Ghz with PC8500
DDR2 1033 RAM?
coz right now im using PC6400 800?
But i guess it my mobo is not good..
i can POST and pass windows startup at (240 x 13) ~3.12GHz
and (10.5 x 300) ~3.15Ghz.
but all will be BSOD if i try to hit (11 x 300) ~3.30Ghz lol..
Im Noob lol.......
