Yes post 2267, is my quick & dirty guide based on my personal experience with Q9550 and P5Q PRO motherboard, max stable Im Prime 95 large FFT test was 453MHz FSB, these bards cannot get FSB higher with C2Qusd proccesor, only P5Q-E, Premium and Deluxe models can as they have more advanced CPU GTL options in the BIOS.CHEERS.
Check out my OC template with stability testing method:http://www.overclock.net/t/773046/official-asus-p5q-pro-turbo-pro-turbo-owners-club-all-asus-p45-mobo-owners-welcome/2260Cheers.
Yes your PC is compatible with 270X card. I had that exact card, great performer, fast as HD7950 (had them both). You should be expecting a huge performance increase as fas as GPU goes, but your i3 cpu might not be capable of usig that R9 270X to its maximum capabilities. R9 270X has 3x more shaders (1280 vs 400 SP on HD5670), and has 256 bit memory interface (vs 128 bit on HD5670), also it has 2GB of fast GDDR5 memory (1425MHz = 5700MHz effectively). So R9 270X should...
At 1080p resolution you will still be happy with your beastly HD7970 @ 1150/1500MHz card, if you're planning on 1440p screen then go for an upgrade. I have upgraded from HD7950 @ 1150/1600MHz to GTX 780 OCd @ 1150/1600 and at FullHD res I would say that this GTX is an overkill card as my overclocked Asus HD7950 DC2 TOP did everythig like this GTX 780 does, that means enjoyable gaming experience. CHEERS..
2 years ago I also upgraded from Q9550 @ 3.9GHz on P5QC with 8 GB DDR3 1600MHz memory, to 2500K and I was very very satisfied wity upgrade. Even though my overclocked Q9550 managed good gaming performance in combo with GTX 480, when I switched to 2500K even @ stock 3.7GHz games felt smoother and FPS more constant (less FPS dipping). Even I had DDR3 memory on my 775 system and FSB over 450MHz , stil Front Side Bus (FSB) was a limiting factor in my system and memory...
Wassup gang , how it's going. Recently I have upgraded my GPU, from Asus HD7950 DC2 TOP V2 overclocked @ 1100/1600MHz to a Gigabyte GTX 780 WF3 OC card, overclocked to 1150/1600MHz. Yeah it's been very boring since I have moved to LGA 1155 socket, everything is so str8 foward, I cannot remeber the last time I have entered my BIOS. LGA 775 rules!!!! CHEERS..
I've recently switched back on nVidia (GTX 780), so do I still use client-type advanced, or client-type beta in slots settings for GPU folding? What's PPD I could expect for GTX 780 @ 1150/1600MHz? CHEERS..
Yeah it really is, I have also Gigabyte GTX780 WF3 OC rev 1.0 and with SkyN3t 3A BIOS my card is stable @ 1125MHz/1600MHz with stock 1.15V.ASIC 74.4%, max GPU temp 73C (fan @ AUTO).CHEERS..
I have flashed 3A Skynet BIOS on to my Gigabyte GTX 780 WF3 OC rev. 1.0 card. With stock BIOS I couldn't overclock properly as my GPU clock dropped as soon as I started to increase freq, even memory overclock to 1600MHz caused GPU boost clock dropping from usually 1097MHz to ~1050MHz. Not even increasing PL to 105% didn't help much. Also Core overclock was not possible and overvoltage as it caused further dropping of GPU clock speed. My GPU temp never reached over...
Proud owner of a Gigabyte GTX 780 WF3 OC rev. 1.0 , max temp 73C, prety satisfied with it, very silent operation. Only downside is high power consumption, it pulls ~ 270W just GPU, form the wall ~ 385W from the wall for entire system (measured with a kill a Watt unit). Also I have a brand new full cover waterblock for it , EK , maybe I decide to invest in a dedicated loop just for GPU....
