E8400 4.50Ghz

I finally got it. After purchasing a Corsair A70 CPU cooler with copper heat pipes I was able to get my Core2Duo E8400 overclocked from its standard 3.0Ghz all the way up to a 4.50Ghz, a 150% increase in speed. I ran Prime 95 for 22 hours without any errors. Idle temp is at 44C and under load it reaches 70~75C.  The picture above is a screenshot of Prime95 and CPU-Z after running for 22 hours. Below is a picture of the computer.

Intel E8400 Wofldale Dual-Core on Gigabyte EP45-UD3R motherboard. 4GB Dual Channel DDR2 1066 G.Skill RAM, OCZ Agility 2 60GB SSD, 3 Western Digital Caviar Blue 640GB and a 320GB, EVGA 9800 GTX+ Video Card, Antec 500w Power Supply and Antec Two Hundred v2 case.
