Identical set up to you, just put it together the other day. Got it stable at 420 Mhz, 9.5x multiplier. 1.37500 Vcore in BIOS, although since I disabled LLC it's got a pretty sizable Vdroop/Vdrop. Temps around 57/60 degrees with my Xigmatek S1283.

what about the other mobo settings (voltages) all to normal?
and what about those settings about the energy savings (one of them is the one you mentioned)

thanks!

btw according to intel specification here you're exceed the safe V-Core voltage

^lol.

a question if i may ask tho....why get a E8500 as opposed to a nice E8400? is there actually any difference in VID? cos if there isnt, it would be a waste of money :(

Like shadow said, the multiplier is a little higher. I was originally going to get an 8400 since the 8500 was $70 more, but after the price cuts it was only 10 bucks extra, so i figured I'd just go for it.

Yeah, I decided I wanted to stay below 1.4V for my personal limit, I know many people exceed that in their OC's but I like to be on the safe side, and I figure 4ghz is a perfectly accecptable OC. I did bump the FSB voltage up one notch, .05V, but I'm not sure it actually helped, I'm gonna test further to see if it's necessary.

for some reason, I can't push my FSB to 400 . It newer boots to win... with 333 FSB, my ram is running on 800 (400) (5:6) . However if I set the FSB to 400 (1:1), I don't know what Memory Mulitplier to choose. There are options like 2.0A , 2.0B , 2.0C or 2.0D . There is a info right next to it suggesting that I should go for D at 400 FSB, but the computer won't boot :( . I don't know whether it is a RAM issue or what.

EDIT: not enough vCore , I'm now running at 3.8 Ghz 1.27 Vcore, goind to do some tests

question:[srry for stealing your topic]

vdroop is the difference between what you SET in the bios and what it says in lets say CPU-Z, or its the difference between what it SAYS in the bios and CPU-Z? cause if i leave me cpu voltage on auto, my bios hardware monitor will say im runnign at less say 1.29 and cpu-z will also say 1.29

but if i SET the vcore to 1.3, CPU-Z will say 1.27? is that the vDROOP? is that a large vdroop? should i set LLC to auto or enabled to cut the droop?

btw my system temperature is ta 51 C . Is that ok (doesn'r really matter if stress test is running or not, that temp is not changing?
