after i finish benchmarking my system running normally, im thinking of having a crack at overclocking my e8500. it will be my first time overclocking, and i was just wondering around about what Vcore i should be aiming for. Ill be having a crack myself first up, but i am a little apprehensive so having a ball park figure on hand would be handy.... so yeh, if you have an overclocked e8500, what Vcore are you running?

Just wondering - When did you buy that E8500? Download CPUz and tell me the stepping of your CPU

It's most likely C0 stepping, and you should be able to do it with 1.3V :-)
Don't worry about a thing. 'Cause every little thing is gonna be alright.

make sure to use a quality air cooler like a TRUE before OCing your CPU.
