Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Overclocking Guide

Posted on Friday, January 25 2008 @ 04:16:28 CET by

Amazingly out of the 103 articles and reviews that I published on Legion Hardware last year, there are very few that I really remember working on. Although there were a heap of products that I really enjoyed looking at last year, there were few that really stood out and even fewer that really shocked me. Yet I can remember all the way back to July of 2006 when I published our first Intel Core 2 Duo overclocking performance article.

The fact that we were able to reach 4.4GHz without having to use a water-cooling system is impressive. However, while 4.4GHz is a huge achievement for this E8400 processor, we are just as impressed with the 3.6GHz overclock. At this frequency the E8400 almost ran no hotter than it did at 3.0GHz, as we were not required to adjust the voltage in any way. Furthermore, at 3.6GHz it is possible to get away with using cheap DDR2-800 memory. For gamers the best performance gains can also be seen when going from 3.0GHz to 3.6GHz, as pushing the processor further only accounted for very minimal performance gains!
