Okay recently ive tried overclocking my e8400 to 3.6ghz.

My mobo doesn't allow me to set my rated FSB to 1600 , but i can do 1556 which gives me 3.5ghz.

Anyway , my computer seems stable and temperatures are not too bad (Around 43-48 idle & 60-68 on full load)

Althought after about 15 minutes of running prime 95 i get an error (in-place large FFT's)

I dont understand why?

The e8400 should have no trouble hitting 3.6 Ghz and running stable.
You have to go into the BIOS and disable C1E and IEST. You'll also have to manually set the vcore to 1.34 or higher.
What is the mobo brand and model?

I cant find C1E in the bios?
And IEST? If thats the intel speed thing , why would i need this disabled?
