P5KE-Wifi + Wolfdale = Incredible!!

Guys if you are considering any duo-core processor other than a Wofdale
DON"T!!!!!

It's has been a while.
I have been working pretty much 7 days a week since late last November. The money is great but, I am ready for it to get over.
It looks like it will end the end of this month. I got this weeknd off because the company we are working with had a breakdown on their crane. So I get 2 days off!!

I purchased this Motherboard in the middle of last November and it just sat in the box till this week. I decided to purchase a Wolfdale processor to go with it since the 8400 was only $217.

This is my first air-cooled machine in 6 years!! It runs cool and will knock your socks off too!!!

Sam you may want to sit down to look at this Aquamark score!!
This is an inexpensive system!!

The particulars

Mobo-----P5KE Wifi
Prossy----8400 Wolfdale
PSU------PC and Power Cooling Silencer 750 Quad
Cooler----Scythe Cooler with 100mm fan
Memory--2 x 1 gig G.Skill 6400 HZ
Vid Card--Foxconn 8800GTX
HDD------250gig Seagate Baracuda
DVD-----Samsung DVD writer
FDD----Sony
Vantec---Fan Contoller

I love those motherboards btw, I've been buying that exact same board for builds recently, did several Q6600s with them, its like $130 AUD for it, and its brilliant. Has everything, even HDMI, and the wireless is surprisingly good too.

When some of the high end boards cost $400 AUD, thats huge value for the features and performance.

Hey dsio this was my fisrt with this board and I must say I really liked the whole experience. It is easy to set up does all you want it to do and yes the wifi works great!!

cloasters I thought it was time to get away from the blues and the John Deere greens.

The performance of this set up about gave me a nose bleed!!

Woah!!! 4689.5Ghz on air! Not to mention this is the 45nm with 6ML2! Got to be good for gaming!!!
I'm definitely going to get a Wolfdale for my next processor...The price is very reasonable now at $239. By the time I get it, it will be a lot cheaper still...
I can only imagine what the Intel processors are going to be like in the next 10 years with the way their progress has been so far...unreal speeds! Woot!!!

The sad thing is by the end of year your motherboard will be very severely outdated. Nehalem is going to make all current generation boards obsolete and that really bothers me.

I've been wanting a Yorkfield for a while now, expected to get one in January, until intel screwed the pooch. Now if I buy one in March, and the new generation with a new socket and new chipset is out six months later, I'll be very pissed.

Its a tough situation.

Was that OC on Dry Ice or a multi-stage setup? I might toy with a wolfdale if I ever finish my 2 stage phaser.

I'm working on water cooling the evap on my single stage to try to tame this Q6600. If I can get the temps to stay below zero that would be a big help..

Crap, I thought I'd bookmarked that page but I didn't and now I can't find where I got that pic from...sorry. If I find it again I'll post it.
But yea, that's a serious overclock on the E8400! Anything over 5Ghz just amazes me...
I found another but it's not the same post. 5Ghz on watercooling. Galaxy 8800 Ultra (stock cooler no mods)
Wolfdale E8400 ES 5ghz 1m Vapo LS - XtremeSystems Forums
From the other posts I've read, most have gotten well over 5Ghz, but all have been on Dry Ice...so the one on watercooling is pretty amazing...
E8400 OC world record!

Impressive results WZ. I've busted into the 10sec 1M Pi's with my Q6600 on phase at 4.3 but my single stage just won't hold the temps at load for very long.

As tempting as the E series are I think I will hold out for a 45nm Quad and play with one of them for awhile.

My thoughts exactly man. Shame they keep delaying Yorkfields, I've been waiting months to buy one.

I'd love seeing some Sandra benches on this at these clocks...
Bet it's amazing...

WZ is like the Caesar Millan of Intel CPUs.

"You have to be the chip leader, and enforce calm, assertive overclocking"

I've read people doing 5.1Ghz on dry ice, so 4.7 on air is nothing short of huge.
