    So I decided to make this club so that people with these chips and people interested in these chips can see what they are capable of. Both Trt740 and I have an E8400 E0 that we both purchased from our local Microcenter for $149.99+tax(which in Chicago hurts). I decided on doing unofficial since it is not done in any way related to or involved with TPU, of course if it were that would be great. :rockout: I will work on the lay out over time and feel free to give me tips on how to upgrade/change/etc. Correct me if I am wrong about wPrime, haven't really used it but going to include it and try it myself. Thanks to Shadowfold for doing the E7200 club which gave me the idea for this club. :toast:

    Nice results! I wish I had an E8600 to tinker with but I'm poor + I live in the UK, which isn't a good combo lol. Wish I could get a nice new E0 e8400 but may have to wait a while to for the old stock to clear out first :D

    First Vantage run, about 800 less than my E8500 at 4.5GHz. 1.2 or 1.21v in BIOS.

    Vista may have been acting up so going to fiddle with XP for a bit, first run with the E8400 and 4850 at stock.

    Just got an E0 today had to update my bios to 0410 rampage for it to boot.

    VID is 1.25
    lil higher than my old E8400 which was at 1.225 and was running 4.6 stable also before it died.

    it will run 4.6 stable at 1.422 Vcore idles at 31C 46C load under the duorb. Might try it under water later.

    I just ordered a new e8500 from ZZF. I'm really hoping it's an EO. They go through stock quickly, so I think it's possible!

    If I return my e8500 to ZZF, could you pick me up a 8500 EO if I sent you some cash? :)

    Fitseries started the 8600 OC and Bench thread, so I figured I would do one just for the 8400 and 8500.
