Get an E8400 past 4 ghz on a motherboard that was released before C2D, one which as I said I'm not even sure if it supports 45nm processors. IIRC many people get stuck around 380 FSB or so, which isn't much room for overclocking an E8400.

well yeah, but that wasnt the argument. I totally agree with you though.

the p35 with a bios update does. and you didnt specify if you could use an x38 or not. so i was going on the idea that any board, with the e8400
