Overclocking on Asus P5Q pro turbo

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I am a total Noob when it comes to overclocking and not ashamed to admit it, I have read through a lot of guides online and sort of get the gist of things now, slightly befuddled with ratio's but I understand the concept. Any help would be greatly appreciated, the specs for my current build are as follows:-

Intel Q9550@2.83ghz
Asus P5Q Pro Turbo Mobo
4 x 1GB OCZ PC2-8500 1066mhz DDR2 ram
OCZ ModXtreme 600w PSU
Zalman CNPS9700 LED CPU cooler

I know that most people are onto the i3, i5, and i7 now but I'm hanging back for the 32nm processors, I understand that this may seem a little outdated for some but anyone who had this board or has any advice on how to overclock it with the hardware I have available would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks.

No problem with waiting, I'm holding off for 32nm myself too. Especially since my E8500 is still screaming along.

I used this as a guide when I first started overclocking my P5Q Pro (non-Turbo). The Turbo version should be close enough to not make much of a difference. Its helpful in explaining what each of the BIOS options mean and do. Be sure to post your results and good luck!

And also, welcome to OCN!

Thank you Jetpak12 they are basically the same board, same chipset, bios etc just that they put a turbo feature on the board for use in windows but it resets itself whenever the computer is rebooted. This is a great guide, thank you for your help

Np, I hope it works as well for you as it did for me.

Edit: Oops, I think me both meant 22nm, not 32nm, hehe...
