google is your friend - the forum 'search' function is also your friend.

but STICKIES are a closer friend then you think

at least attempt to research stuff for yourself before asking. - saves having to repeat posts n stuff. however if you run into trouble or theres something you dont understand then by all means ask, but for simple stuff like 'E8400 overclocking' in google could have saved you a lot of time instead of waiting around for someone to answer.

Easiest way .....

lower your dram speed in bios and continue bringing fsb up by 5 til you dont post/no longer boot windows. Once that occurs back off by a minimum of 7.

Thats without making any other adjustments. Make sure you disable c1e/eist and setup voltages from auto to a constant value.
