hey guys me and a friend were having a noob oc competiton, and since we both had the Q8200 and user specific hardware, we wanted to see which one of us could get the higher oc. i ended up with 3.01ghz @1.4v had he got 2.99ghz@ 1.44, both stable of course. i've noticed that quite a few of you have got the same chip. so what your highest oc on this chip?has anyone reached the mythical 3.2 ghz mark yet? :D  sorry i had to move the post as i posted in the wrong section

thats abit harsh comin from a guy called ball smasher. btw i'm not rich enough to afford a better rig therefore the lack of oc headroom. what were your results just out of curiosity?

Sorry for bumping, found this on google, however,
I OCed this one 2.8 with 1.3 voltage... I think you are going to burn your CPU with that voltage.

nahh i had a zalman installed, its been alright for over a year now, computer temps always stayed around 35 and moving to about 56 under heavy load :)  heaps better performance too, its plays almost anything no issue

i agree with you lol you are taking a bit of risk overclocking it to that high

I OC'd my Q8200 up to 3.1 a couple years ago, and then about 6 months ago I bumped it to 3.33 with no issues. Idle temps are around 45-50c, load temps rarely see more than 60c. I left voltages set to 'Auto' in BIOS. Been running stable for over 2 years being OC'd. (also running a pair of GTS 250's that are OC'd too!)

Hello guys, just want to share my experience in overclocking, well I also have my Q8200 OC'd @ 3.0Ghz @ 1.16volts...Running stable using water cooling system..
with a max temp of 46c @ 100% load.. been running this bad boy for 9 months with no problems at all, good for my BF3...

they generally max out around 3ghz due to the insane amount of FSB needed, not because its maxing the cpu. i have a q8200 and a q6600. the q8200 made it to 2.8 before i became uncomfortable with the amount of voltage i needed in the NB to get any higher. the limiting factor will be the motherboard an how much voltage you want to put into the NB and HT link. the q6600 is much better as it runs a higher multiplier, less fsb is needed. people get 3.8ghz on air with q6600
