Drop A probably. I dont think anyone has ever went lower.

Maybe Meshuggah though I can't remember what tuning they'd use on their EIGHT strings.

Meshuggah's eight strings are tuned to F# B E A D G B E....not metalcore but still the lowest tuning I've ever seen.

F# B E A D G B E would be standard I believe for an eight string.

EDIT: F# is E so it would be a standard drop E if you get what I mean.
