    You need to post WHAT didn't work. Sounds like you either have something set wrong, or not enough volts.

    Please post what full settings you used that fail

    Put everyhing as you said, but I used the lower end values for the ones where you gave me a range.
    eg:Write to Precharge Delay_________4-6
    I used 4.

    For the voltage, I changed it to 1.325

    Also, found the ddr2 voltage thing, after I CTRL + F1, changed that as well.

    All the CPU clock settings, etc, and ram timings were at auto when I checked back the bios.
    The votages were unchanged.

    Well you have to put all the HIGHEST Settings I gave first. Then once stable you lower one at a time. And 1.325 may ore may not be enough either

    A double reboot is normal when making BIOS changes and means they are OK, but not necessarily stable.

    A triple reboot or more means incorrect settings, and your BIOS will be returned to all defaults. So that is why you saw voltages unchanged I would assume

    But wouldn't going with the higher voltages be more damanging?

    Ok so I'll setup everything again with a 1.4 voltage?
    There is a CPU clock OFFSET CLOCK setting, what to do about that?
    (it was intially 0.5)

    I was reading that the NEW bios update has some added features for my E8400/?

    I am not sure about what you have asked and then answered to my reply. You asked about Ranges, ans showed a ram range I gave. That is what I referred to highest mainly

    But yes, If I gave a range for voltage you may need to start in the middle or higher even. Depends on hardware itself. That is why I commented what I did on CPU Voltage.

    Sometimes you just have to set high and if it is stable bring down until it is not, then go back up a notch or two.

    Clock Offset? You mean CPU Clock Ratio, that is for a .5 multi for your CPU. You can use 8.5 or 7.6 or 6.5 instead of 9. That is all that is for, you want it set to 0 for the 9 multi, and that is all you can use

    BIOS update is a "Up to You" type of thing, and should be looked at Like "If it isn't Broke, Don't fix it". You really should only be flashing your BIOS if you see a update that directly fixes or addresses some issue you have, or you are MANY versions behind. Newer is not always better for sure. Beta is for sure not better, you should be using a NON Beta, looks like F4 or F5 would be your best choices as I said on page 1

    Have you read the overclocking Guide I posted? It may help you understand better maybe why higher voltages should be set at first

    Yeap, things can get pretty complicated if you get in there! But it is good to learn so you will know in the future

    I did that!
    I threw the voltage @ 1.4v, but left all the ram info on auto.

    It's maxing out @ 59 degrees under prime95 testing, 15 mins so far.
    I got it up to 3.6ghz thus far, thinking if to go higher!

    Shaved over 2.5 seconds off superi, from 15.5 to 13.

    Should I pump it up to 3.8ghz?
    How much voltage can the processor take anyhow?

    Nice to see you are getting somewhere.

    Ahh, I dont know for sure. I hear 1.45 MAX Actual, but who knows. I'd say just keep a sys on your temps and go from there. You may not need more to even go to 4Ghz, just depends on what Actual voltage you are getting in windows and idle and load.

    I use 1.325 for 4Ghz on mine (E3110) same thing, but all chips and boards are different so, just see where you can go, and keep a eye on the temps is all
