    Do you mean overclock the E8500 or the 9800gtx+?
    I would recommend against overclocking the E8500 more than it already is.

    my E8500 is at 4.0GHZ with a good cooler and motherboard though. and my 9800GTX+ is at 800 core and 2400 memory. i don't think you need to overclock the E8500, the only reason i have mine at 4.0GHZ is for the bragging rights
