    as expected . you got same load temps than my Q807 , that is weird even if reported 10° lower in real temp for 4 ghz My Q746 reaches 55° full under prime and it is with the same cooling TRUE120 26° idle vs 55° on the same board tssss ( asus P5K premium black pearl ed) I can't even...

    Xeon E3110 or C2D E8400?

    there is something weird what mobo do you have ? I think you can't go wrong with Xeon /penryn running with intel P35. tried X38 ( asus P5E and maximus formula and got lot of issues booting or ram related. no luck for me as other owners success with such combos , but I don't like...

    Xeon E3110 or C2D E8400?

    I don't think you could be unhappy ;) I'm on the same way . You could uncheck BTW auto vcore since most often mobo will overvolt it. Set to auto mine is around 1.25 v and as you can see my 3.6 ghz is stable with only 1.16v load - everyone shoud test it before let autovcore. running...

    of course not ! I'm talking for my personal use of overclocked cpu . do you think I 'd be member of such forums( ocforum/ xtremsystems and others ) lol I just think we should be careful with those new cpu's don't forget I validate my 4 ghz E6600 here too with +8hours priming . :p

    Xeon E3110 or C2D E8400?

    There is a thread on XS about possible degradation - several people needed to increase vcore to get same stability under orthos or occt http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=179965&highlight=degradation Don't forget those chips are new and we don't know so much about them...

    Xeon E3110 or C2D E8400?

    yes , most people are enthousiast getting easier 4 ghz on air with those wolfies than with allendale/conroe . as targeting the higher fsb is most part of fun than really much better . You 'll get better results in memory bandwith benches like everest or sandra sisoft but for daily apps or...
