Building PC's is cheaper when you want a higher-end PC. Because Higher-end PC's are overpriced unless you build them (most of the time).
I already have a notebook, and I will do as I please with my money

Here's my evidence scc456
No you did not xD, you are getting lost in your own posts...

Core2Quad although technically has bigger number, actual real life performance might not be better.

I suggest looking for benchmarks.

"No, I'm buying another mobo for my brother and I'm putting the 8400 in his, and I'm buying a q9450"

Yes I did

Also why are you asking us for help when you "thought it out"?

I'm Out!

Thank god. Anyways, I'm asking for OVERCLOCKING help, not "advice" about the "mistake" I made on my build. I didn't deny what BK_123 said, in fact, I'm doing exactly what he said. Speaking of which BK, I tried downloading the Intel extreme utility software, and it said I was trying to install on an unsupported platform :/

I bet with your closed loop cooler you can hit 4ghz 24/7, Possibly even higher. Good luck. Post some screen shots of your stable OC's.

Thanks. I just OCed to 3.2 GHZ last night, and I'm really scared to go further :/ I don't want to ruin it. Is there any way I can safely OC? Oh ya, and I used the ASRock whatever software that came with the motherboard, and I overclocked my mulitplier to like 342, and the computer froze. So I shut the computer off and restarted and it didn't save the OC, so I just played with it for a while, and got to 340 flat. Did it freeze because the software is Crap or what?

Just watch your temps. Run prime 95 or something. Have you cranked up the voltage yet? If not you cant ruin your chip. It is going to take some trial and error to get a stable overclock. I dont know about that mobo so you will have to do some reading.

So are you saying crank up the voltage, or do NOT crank up the voltage? How do I do this?
