Can you honestly notice 1.2ghz?

Yes I can. 1.8ghz to be exact

I might just wait til my new heatsink comes in and then try and up it to 4ghz XD

What's wrong with wanting to go higher on OCs? I'm 90% sure this wasn't my overclock that screwed me up. I guess I'll go get help else where then

You would be a fool to Overclock with out a proper after market heatsink and without thermal paste, you have some decent parts there that are worth preserving, so don't don't screw it up as for your overclock, you posted screen shots in the overclocking thread so you should be able to replicate your results.

From the screenshots you posted earlier I did notice one thing and that was your vcore voltage was still at standard and may have been the cause of your problems, if you are going to overclock that much you need to rais the voltage as well.

If you look at this screen shot of CPUZ you will see that I have my voltage set at 1.33v although in the Bios I think it's at 3.35v and I have mine overclocked to 3.8Ghz as well, so considering you are running an E8400 I would expect that you would require the same amount or more to acheive the same clock with full stability.



these were your previous screen shots to give some idea.



Talking of stability, did you actualy test to see how stable it was with that overclock with a tool such as Orthos or Prime95?

Try these out and it will show you if it's stable or not.

I tested it with Prime95 for about 6 hours when I first OC'd it. And I forgot I had posted screenshots, but I'll wait until my cooler comes before I do anything to it. You think with a very good heatsink I could push 4ghz or not without water cooling?

Also, should I OC my gfx and memory as well?

I have had mine at 4.5Ghz but was not able to get it stable, I am very happy with 3.8Ghz now and I don't think it necessary to go any higher as you you won't notice a difference anyway and your only going to shorten the life of your Hardware.

Newegg.com - Scythe SCKTN-3000 92mm Sleeve "KATANA3" 3Heat Pipes CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
Newegg.com - ASUS Triton70 92mm Vapo Bearing CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Are those any good for heatsinks? I would go water cooling, but my case is so small and I have no clue where to start on water cooling lols.
