    Appreciate the kind words!

    Try .15 MCH and .2 with the below suggestion

    And then all of the above again, except go in and manually set Refresh to act delay to 56, and set Static Tread to 9 or 10 and see if you get in any better with less volts
    And yes you could test another .1 to the FSB

    Not really sure what else you could do other then the voltage you had going of 1.425, those are decent load temps you had. NB could use a fan on it though

    Yeah I guess the temps aren't really that bad. I was just a lil worried bout a full-time +.1v because it does raise my idle temps quite a bit. But then, the Arctic Silver I applied a couple days ago hasn't even had time to set up yet, so I think I'll be alright. Really, this cpu just has to get me by until I upgrade to Nehalem sometime next year (hopefully).

    I had a fan on my NB untill I just redid the thermal paste on it, but I'd rather not put it back on if possible. It is a little 50mm thing that runs at 6800 RPM! It is easily the loudest fan in my system, even besting my 8800GTS @ 60% fanspeed for sheer high pitched whine. If you think 48C load on my NB is gonna kill my mobo, though, then I will bust out the superglue and put it back in.

    Well, it's been a lot of fun (and a lil frustrating) pushing my system to see what it can do. I think I'm gonna live (and be happy) with 3.33Ghz, as it seems to be the limit of my stability, and is a 66% OC! Not bad for my first OC build attempt. Now, on to solving my lil BIOS update problem....

    the Nehalem series should be out Q1-3 next year... but they'll be real expensive and you'll need a new mobo as well... but it should be a great processor by the sounds of it... integrated memory controller should help get rid of that bottleneck

    Yes, from the early (p)reviews I've seen, it's set to blow pretty much every current cpu away, performance-wise. Lil concerned about the price, but when I finally do make the jump from dual to quad core i wanna do it right! And maybe, just maybe, DDR3 will be at a good price:performance ratio by the time I can afford one o them Nehalems, (and a decent mobo). (This is already starting to sound pricey....) But then, I got the board I got now so that I can get DDR3 when it's worth it, then upgrade to quadcore later an keep the ram.

    Hi all,

    I am sorry to necro this threat but I got myself a E4400 and I have a Gigabyte GA-965P-DS4 V2 with F12 bios.

    I can change voltages, multiplier but whenever i change the FSB 1 up or even down it stops booting up.

    Anyone know whats going on here?

    I tried different memory multipliers as well so its not the memory, as far as i know.

    I ebayed this E4400 as I had a Pentium D and a ATI 4890 so am higly bottlnecked by the CPU so I thought I'd buy this one and yank it up to around 3g but its not even letting me change any FSB settings.

    Its still faster then my 3 Gig Pentium D 925 though but it still bottlnecks my VGA card.
