    It's for an EP35-DS3L.

    Go through the guides. Then go into the BIOS and change the System Memory Multiplier (or whatever your BIOS calls it) 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 step with it. If you are at 3.0 GHz (333 MHz X 9), your memory clock should be at 667 MHz.

    Do not exceed 1.45 volts vcore or load temps of 70 C.

    I have just oc'd my e8400 to 3.60ghz, the vcore 1 is at 1.38v and the vcore 2 is at 2.10v. this is really pushing it?
