    My mates board may have died so i'm testing his E8400 to see if its dead.Its at 4ghz/1.31vcore now,the temps are at 29/30c core 1/2.How high do you reckon i can get it? With my water loop the temps are nice.

    If it's a good chip, 4.5GHz at 1.4ishV.

    Stock for almost every 775 CPU is 1.2v. Use Coretemp with the voltage on auto and read what it says under "VID."

    When someone asks me to test something, I put it through every loop I can. If it doesn't pass, eh it's broken ;)

    I've seen E8400s hit about 4.7-4.8GHz. Not guaranteeing that this chip can do that, but about 4.4GHz should be reasonable.

    *Sends CPU + mobo to friend to test*
    *when you get it back you realize your PC is way faster*

    *goes to friend and hugs him for great OC and new way of heating your room since your heater broke and your in mid-winter in *insert cold region here* :p
