I have and Intell E8500 and the stepping code as reported by CPUZ has changed from C0 to E0. Is this even possible? I wouldn' t have thought so.

Thanks for your help

It might be possible if you were using an old CPUz which does not reconize E0 stepping, then updated to a newer CPUz.

Or possibly your motherboard BIOS does not support E0 stepping(revision) and you updated motherboard BIOS

I just realized my mistake!!!!! I am deeply embarassed and aplogize to this forum. I had forgotten stepping code of my own CPU and CPUZ was telling me the truth (of course). My Apologies.

I am new to this forum but not to computers as I worked for NCR for ten years and DEC for 30 years. However, PC's are a little different from the systems I worked on and managed.

I am having trouble overclocking an Intel E8500 to 4.0 ghz with out it getting what I consider too hot. At 4.0 ghz it will idle at about 45 C and top out at 51 to 52 C. Is this to hot.

I have increased the front side bus to 422 X 9.5 ti get 4.0 ghz. It won't run. However Gigabute Easy Tune 6 will make it run at 4.0 ghz. Can any one help.

Warm Regards

No. I have a Q6600 OC'd to 3.6 GHz. Prime95 load temps are 61 C - 65 C. And I have a Q9550 also OC'd to 3.6 GHz. It's load temps are 58C - 61 C. I hae the thermal alarms on my motherboards set to go off at 70 C.

I'm happy once it doesn't hit 68-70 after hours of Prime, it's a relatively safe assumption that your CPU won't be pushed that hard for that long without breaks in regular usage.

Thanks to all for your answers. I'm new to overclocking.
