The Intel e8400 has been out of a little over a week now and we’re seeing a lot of overclocking results. So far, the results are pretty good. Those of you looking for a top of the line processor with good overclock potential need look no further than the e8400.
The cpu will overclock from 3.6ghz to 4ghz on the stock cooler. Personally I would only do 3.6 or lower on the stock cooler. If you want to oc to 4ghz or higher go with an after market cooler.
The cpu vcores have been in the 1.3v to 1.4v range for 4ghz. So expect a little less for a lower oc and a little more for a higher oc. Temps are a little high. There are lots of readings in the 60’s. Could be a problem with the cpu’s readings or the software. Or maybe these chips aren’t as cool as everyone thought they were going to be.
If you’re an early adopter, then it looks fairly safe to jump on the wagon. Personally I like to wait for the next revision and for prices to drop down. This also gives me the advantage of seeing how the cpu’s play out.
