    Please be sure you have C1E and EIST Disabled in the BIOS

    I have cie and eist enabled in the settings I posted so yes the cpu will lower the multiplier when its not being loaded.
    Its not for "save the planet" reasons but under any sort of testing/load on the cpu it will spin up to max spped.I just posted what works for me.
    nb stepping disabled will also work but i dont find I need it .

    Think of 3.5-3.55Ghz being the highest stable cpu overclock with any air cooling..apparently due to fsb/45nm quad limitations the q8400 is really the same cpu with a x8 multiplier and 4ghz seems to be around the limit there.
    3.4 and 3.5ghz you probably wont notice much difference in speed on the cpu.

    Its like i can get 3.57 ghz stable on system testing but i cant run gx testing and cpu/mem testing at the same time at that speed.
    3.4if ya wanna stay reasonably conservative..3.5ghz if you like nice round numbers like 500x 7 :) but will you notice it faster? probably not,theres also the q of your memory bandwidth and timings.

    Not sure how that cooler would be for your quad, you will just have to push things and see how temps react as you go.

    Agreed. As long as cooling is in check, it's more a question of how much will the chip give you. Under most circumstances and with half decent cooling, the Q8200 will run out of steam long before you have to start using high(ish) voltages etc.

    I'd say absolutely no more than 3.6GHz, with 3.2-3.4GHz being much more realistic.
