sorry guys i tried to fry my cpu to see how long it would last before i swaped it out.

i currently but not for long have a e8400 1.225vid, because of the crap vid it was only stable with 1.4v at 4ghz. so i wanted to swap for a e8600 but before i could afford it i thought id see if i could kill my e8400, i have been running it at 1.61vcore for 4.6ghz and 1.4fsb, for the last 4 months, so you all the people thinking that 1.4v is bad then im quite certin that it will last for 2years at 1.4v. so when i get my e8600 i hope it has a good vid and i might be able too hit 5ghz with less then 1.5v

Too bad a long term test can't be completed at that voltage. Feel like doing it? LOL

You never know, you might be right about Intel being conservative about voltage tolerances. (referring to another thread)

Refresh my memory, what are you using to cool that chip?

Hi Richard:

Not to hijack your thread, but my C0 8400 has a VID of 1.15 (so says CoreTemp). Is that good/bad/inaccurate? Do you have other means of confirming that number besides CoreTemp? What does it imply?

My won't stay stable much past 3.8 GHz, but I think it is my MSI P35Neo Mobo that is holding me back. I am currently at 1.375 v, ~1.35 after Vdroop.

Thanks!

sportsfanboy im useing a vapochill, i would like to run it as fast as possible but my mobo can only go upto 1.7v. :p volt mod when i need more speed lol.

husky thats a good vid for a e8400 make sure its the newest version of coretemp. as for the limiting factor id say its actually your ram and mch voltage notch them up a bit and see if you can get to 4ghz.
