With Gigabyte Board:
We are looking for the CPU FSB Frequency, PCI Xpress Bus Frequency, and Memory Multiplier Settings.
Set your CPU FSB Frequency to 400mhz
Now set your PCI Xpress Frequency to 100mhz
Now set your Memory Multiplier to 2X (Assuming you have DDR2-800 which most do)
You should now get a reading of 3.6Ghz
You should be at 37c with the Freezer Pro with the CPU at 3.6Ghz, however some E8400s have problems reporting core temperatures. IF you are above 60c @3.6 then I would set it back to 3.0ghz and check that your HSF is seated properly and checks your cases airflow to make sure no fans are fighting each other.
