Thanks! Unfortunately, my cooling setup can't handle the temps created by that high a voltage. I need more fans ...

first time i've noticed this thread!

i've got a 3ghz e8400 running smoothly @ 4ghz, by bumping fsb from 333 to 446 and upping vcore to 1.29, all on air cooling, namely a relatively inexpensive arctic cooling freezer pro hsf. mobo is one of the last great abit ip35 pro boards.

it's been running stably for, oh, six months or so, including some pretty intense gaming sessions.

i feel i could go a lot higher with this chip and mobo combo, but 4 gig dual-core action is enough for me at this time; plus, at this speed, chip doesn't get too hot, and fans stay nice and quiet.

finally my P35 chipset is showing its age....lol

As it it is, it pretty much matches my q9550 at 3.8ghz. You gotta be happy with that

lol, 3 of my core sensors are buggered now. At first it was just the 4th core, then the 3rd went and then the 1st... they still show movement under load and the tcase sensor is fine, so it's not a huge deal - it's common with this series
