Windows 7: Overclocking to 3.4

I'm not going to give out my number or call anybody. Overclocking can be a fine line, and every piece of hardware (even the same CPU make and model) can react differently. You will simply have to try and experiment and get things to run stable.

I've given you all of the info that I can.

I actually DROPPED my vcore from 1.250V to 1.175V. I'm running on the stock Intel cooler. My idle temps are around 28-34C, and my max temps running Prime95 are around 65C. I ran a handbrake convert today and my CPU's ran at nearly 100% for 20 minutes and I was sitting at 51C. My ambient room temps are around 18-19C as my computer is in my basement. Computer has been stable as a rock now for a few years.

He gave you the settings.
Multi 8.5 / FSB 400 / 1.25Vcore and tweak from there RAm @ 800Mhz.
Probably need to set the RAM slower such as 667 so that it will be closer to rated speed with FSB change.
