    Actually it's better to go by peak Flops, anything less is due to other processes consuming CPU.
    As long they are near {new freq.} / {base freq.} x [base Flops} you are doing OK, if they are significantly less than more vcore may be needed.
    Maybe jump strait to 3.33GHz, shouldn't be a problem for the CPU.

    Ok I've got that information too, and the math checks out. I actually get a little bit more of a boost than what it estimates it seems. My vcore is currently 1.23750V, two notches up from 1.22500V default. Termination is at 1.200V with Reference at [Auto]. I'm working on compiling a full BIOS list. I will work on 3.33GHz.

    I always get less not more, but I doo all benchmarks at diagnostic mode(msconfig).
    Maybe the base line was not at complete idle, or it could be the low FSB surely memoy performance are much better than with stock FSB.
    333 is not high FSB so probably all you will have to change is vcore.

    3.33GHz failed IBT with same memory settings and voltages. What should I bump my vcore to? It was 1.23750V. Is that all I should modify for now?

    Probably vcore, try Prime95 small FFT, if it fails too it's surely vcore.

    Failed Prime95 small FFT. I bumped up Vcore to 1.29 and it has passed 11 tests of small FFT at 3.33GHz (10x333)

    Did you have to go all the way up 1.29? What is actual vcore reported by CPU-Z at idle and under load, and are Flops? as expected?

    I had been bumping it at smaller amounts but it would keep failing Prime95. I eventually bumped it to 1.29V and CPU-Z reports ~1.21 idle and ~1.25 (+/- 0.01) under load. Two Prime95 tests succeed at least 8 times so far and my GFlops for LinX are now 21.3, noticeably better than the 19.7 with the old settings or the 15.8 stock settings.

    Yes those are about E8400 stock Flops, but don't stop there, I've seen images of E5200 doing 4GHz with 1.38v in CPU-Z, so maybe 3.6-3.7GHz would do with up to 1.3625v in BIOS.
    is it 1.21 or 1.25v at idle?
    Core temps still under 70c?

    Core temps still have not exceeded 56 C. I would have noticed them change. The CPU sensor hasn't gone past 46C this whole time. Setting some limits, would you say 1.3625v max be good? Where to now?
    Edit​: Temps are in following post.
