That sucks about the board but you should be able to get to 3.6ghz with no problem. Most Q9450 overclock to 3.6ghz on average hopefully you dont have a crappy overclocker. I had my Q9450 up to 4.0 but could only get it stable @3.8ghz. Good Luck with Q9450

Idle was 40ish and would never drop below no matter the voltage. Under load it would reach mid to high 50s.

The cap was right above the southbridge and next to the memory.....maybe why such high voltage to memory was necessary and why it eventually gave out. Next time I have it running, I will drop the northbridge voltage a little. The RAM I had runs off 1.8 but I was never able to get the rated O.C. speeds.

Idle temps mean nothing. At 15 minutes 100% load is what matters and for you the limit is about 75c so you have a lot of room once you get the board fixed.

Well, the motherboard is working again- I'm not sure if I fixed it or if the RAM slots had gone bad. I replaced a capacitor by the RAM slots---- now the computer doesn't start if I have RAM in that first slot pair, but it does work fine when I have RAM in second set of slots.

All that aside, I attempted to overclock again.

Everything was going fine at 3.2 with 1.25 vcore in the BIOS, but I got a BSOD Stop: 0x000000D1 error within seconds of turning my fan controller up all the way (it feeds off the CPU header and provides power to my Zalman HSF and my Rexus (Panaflo) Highest speed they make. The error was an ATAPI.sys error.

It is not sure that the fan power demands caused the error, but it is possible- would this be a Northbridge power error? A memory error? How can I troubleshoot?

My settings were:

(including all enabled features for RAM and CPU that "may" help with overclocks- according to the BIOS descriptions)

Vcore 1.25
PLL voltage 1.52
FSB termination voltage 1.28
DRAM voltage 1.60
Northbrige voltage 1.41
