Re: How do i overclock my E8400
set the vcore to your own voltage. dont do auto. on stock mine is at 1.16. I got to 4.5 on 1.46vcore. then you can set your own vcore.
And that way is too slow for some. another way is just set the fsb at the desired speed, and then change the voltage, and see if it is stable. then bump up depending on how unstable it is.
For instance, in one run it woudlnt boot, so I bumped it up alot, then it would only make it through half a boot, so I bumped it up equally more. then it almost made it, so small steps from there.
