Exclamation OCing my E8500, Comment on my OC.

Well I just traded my friend for his processor. I gave him my terrible Q9550 that wouldnt post at 3.2 GHz for his E8500, cause he doesnt even overclock. Anyway I did some overclocking 2 Hours of OCCT Stable Mix Test. and 6HR Prime95 Blend Test. I want you guys to comment on it and tell me if I can improve in anything.

16733 3D Mark 06

Specs: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500
EVGA 750I FTW
ACF7 Heatsink
G.SKILL PI Series DDR2-800 4-4-4-12
EVGA Geforce 260 GTX (216 SP) @ 680/1403/1151
OCZ GameXStream 700W PSU
300 GB Velociraptor






**Note the highest Temp it reached on prime95 was 77 C

Questions I have

1. Should I run this as a 24/7 OC?
2. Any settings I should change?
3. Is it worth it to do a pencil mod on a 750i
4. Is there anyway i can mess up anything while attempting to do a pencil mod?
5. Any pencil modding guides that you guys can show me?

Thanks, in advance. Feel free to comment on whatever. Thanks again

EDIT: I really dont wanna run intelburn test because i think the temps would be crazy and its never really stable for me. Do you think OCCT and Prime95 stable is good enough?

yes prime stable is fine. your load temp is too high. have you tried your OC with less proccesor voltage? seems 1.4V is a little high for 4.2ghz. i had an e8400 that would do 4.2 @ like 1.3~V, which may even be a little too high.

Well I got it for free and it sucked really bad.

But yeah I tried 1.39 and it would lock up on occt I moved it up to 1.412 it was stable. I think my temps are messed up Im thinking the thermal paste. Should i buy some?
