Q9550 OC, Help!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hello all, I am stuck.

I read and read and still am lost on this overclock deal, and when I think I do something right my system won't POST. My current specs are Q9550 2.83ghz / 8gigs Corsair ballistix 1600mhz DDR3 ram / Gigabyte eP45t-DS3R / 750w TX corsair PSU / ATi 6870 1gig card / HAF 932 case. My system (minus ram and video card) are 3 years old now and I have never bothered to step up the cpu, I even had water cooling installed on the cpu. I am just not sure what i am not changing to have the PC not start up. Have the software to read my pc parts and test them just need some human assistance. here are the default voltages as well if you need them, appreciate any help, thank you.
CPU
Core Voltage1.150 - 1.250 V
I/O Voltage1.150 - 1.250 V
Typical Power95 W @ 2.83 GHz
RAM
Memory SpeedDDR3-1600 (800 MHz) -it currently runs at 666mhz

I'd like to get the system to 3.4-3.6 ghz

See if it'll boot with these settings. Not sure if you'll have to mess with refs yet. I'll have to go dig up some threads for you to read how to set cpu refs at higher clocks. I've had this board for years and it stills confuses me, so, yeah... Just try those settings and see if it posts.

You'll have to go back in and set these:
(G)MCH Frequency Latch...............: Auto
System Memory Multiplier ..............:Auto
manually but I'm not familiar with DDR3 memory so I'm not sure what you would slap on there. But I'm thinking 400 for the Latch and 2.00 D for the Mem Multi to keep the RAM speed down while you work out the cpu oc.

Good luck.

Appreciate the help, i'll try your edit OC. My system cooler can handle it I know that, but just a bit confused on all this, I really need to take the time to read up on it. (but why do that when I have the awesome people of OCN! biggrin.gif) plus the Navy and my networking degree in college > my ass.

__________________

That should get you to 3.6Ghz, but not guaranteed. I set dram voltage to 1.5-1.7 as I am not sure which kit you have, but set this voltage according to what the modules are supposed to run at. Also how many sticks of ram are you using? Is it a 2x4Gb kit or 4x2Gb kit? More memory modules will put a greater strain on the memory controller and MCH core will need to be increased, at least this was the case on the DDR2 memory controllers on similar motherboards of the time.

If you find this to be stable you can move CPU host frequency up some to say 450 possibly more. Make sure to do plenty of testing in between to make sure things are stable.

How did it fail? No post? No boot, into Windows? Did it freeze? Crash after booting?

Try what Valafar suggested. You're going to show that 9550 who's boss.

It wouldn't post, crash. Thank you so much Val, worked like a charm. Only got to test it for 5 minutes. But it posted so I'm happy. When I get home later I'll prime 95 it for a while and report back. Thanks again.

And the ram is 1.5v and posted at that.

I have the same cpu but on different mobo,
would like to overclock it to play bf3 (no $$ to upgrade:()
First thing first, I know I need a better cpu cooler than the intel stock.
Entry level like ... Coolit Systems Eco? Then I'll try above setting.
Thanks guys biggrin.gif
