tosen, just get a better mb and oc the beast.
I don't see any reason (unless you can provide one) to upgrade this beast.
On my research found that theres 2 type of e8400 1 is C0 and other is D0...mine is the older one C0 but dont know the difference.
Also saw that i can overclock to 3.6 Ghz even on stock fan...but with stock intel heatsink:
50° on idle and 75° on heavy load...now its 37° on idle and 44° on heavy load, and i used crappy thermal paste.
Should i aim for 4Ghz? Im really concerned on frying the new mobo with the volt regulation.
