    Default EP45-DS3 + E8400 O/C questions

    Current setting E8400 3.6GHz @ 1.19v
    CPU Host Frequency = 400 MHz
    CPU Clock Ratio = 9
    PCI ex freqc =100Mhz

    RAM setting
    Performance Enhance = Standard
    System Memory Multiplier = 2
    CL 5-5-5-18

    i want to go over 3.6G and i got a question here do i need to keep the Rated FSB below 1600MHz, what happen if i go over 1600MHz to overclock it to 4Ghz

    I'm a newbie for O/C

    Thank you

    Nothing but speed! You will be fine, I run at 1800 and 2000+ with no issues.

    That 1600 you see if just "Stock" specs not what the board will do. You are good to go for sure to 4Ghz +
