    More Overclock trouble but more info too

    OK. So I tried to overclock to 4200 Mhz again. Unfortunately, I was unsuccessful, but in the process I did get more information as to why the system goes unstable.

    When running Orthos, the system...

    Well, its official. 445 mhz on the FSB is as high as my E8400 seems to want to go. Even at 446 it loses stability and crashes/randomly shuts down. Guess I'll have to be satisfied with a 4 Ghz...

    Yeah, I sort of had a feeling I had hit a brick wall with the OC. Got a few more things I can try. Have already tried messing with the VTT, the GTL settings, NB, SB voltage, but either it fails to...

    OC Troubles...again

    Ok. So my E8400 is stable at 4000 Mhz on 1.26 Vcore. I'm having trouble going over 4000 though. The problem is that I can't seem to stabilize a 4200 Mhz overclock on any voltage up to and including...

    Depends a lot on what your ambient temps are I guess, but in a 80 F room (not sure what that is in C) mine is running about 36-40 idle and 58-60 under load. But that's at 4000 Mhz

    I'm curious. Have you tried running it stable with lower Vcore yet? 1.36 just seems a bit high for 4000 Mhz on these chips. I'd be really interested to see how low you can take your Vcore and keep it...

    Good news for me. I thought that my E8400 was running at 68 under load. Turns out that OCCT is just reading the temps wrong. According to a IR thermometer I "borrowed" from work, my temps are...

    Intel E8400 Batch Q815A418

    I was considering going to 4200, but for some reason whenever I take the Vcore above 1.28 the board won't power on. Once I figure that out I might go higher on the OC

    Nah, my DFI board defaulted the ram to 1.85 VDimm, and it seemed to run fine, but I figured since I was going to be oc'ing the ram, I should set it to what its rated for (2.1) just in case.

    I run my memory at 2.1V 5-5-5-15. I tried it at 4-4-4-12, but I ran into a lot of blue screens, so I loosened the timings.

    I run about 40 idle and under load I hit as high as 68. I need to remove...

    Ok. I think I finally got the OC I was looking for. 4000 MHz on 1.26 VCore. Stable on a 32M superpi, Orthos, and OCCT.

    Did you happen to change the CPU V Special ADD in the voltage settings? I think if you leave it on auto it can add a lot of extra voltage to your VCore. You might try setting it to its lowest setting...

    Okay. I'm having a bit of trouble overclocking my E8400 above 3600 Mhz. At 3600 it seems stable on 1.23 Vcore. But when I try to go above 3600 it won't pass a 1 hour OCCT - always crashes with a code...

    Does anyone know where I might find a listing of what all the error codes on the LED display mean? It would help me a lot with overclocking if I knew exactly which messages meant what.
