Default Hrm.. How to achieve 4.0ghz with the e8400 and the MSI P35?

Ok, this is the OC part of the BIOs on the P35 and I don't know how I can achieve the 4.0ghz which i've heard can easily be attained by the E8400

http://www.msicomputer.com/msiforms2/maxP35.asp

so right now I have my FSB frequency at 430 and CPU ratio at 8 (It won't boot if its at 8.5 or 9) and its pretty stable right now 36C.

but every time you increase the frequency and decrease the cpu ratio doesn't that make it slower?

I have the Thermalright Ultra-120 CPU Cooling Heatsink /w fan

thanks.

Yeah, if your voltages are for example on automatic, thats a bad place to start.

You'll also find that some chips just won't go as high as others, and 4.0ghz sounds VERY high.

God
What kind of temp's are u reading?

I'm waiting for you to 100% the CPU for a minute and wait to see if it blew up on you.

Really, is anything over 4Ghz needed when your running at 50C?(that is a guess)
