Normal FSB limit for C2Q Q9x00 chips?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm kind of curious if there's a "common" FSB limit for Q9x00 chips. I've got a Q9400 I've been messing around with and I've been able to POST with 500FSB (4GHz) with ~1.34V and while I haven't gotten it particularly stable, I think it won't be too hard after I figure out the quirks of my board.

My own chip nonwithstanding, what's a high common limit on other Q9x00 chips? I know C2D E8400s can get up to 550FSB rather often, but what about C2Qs?

I'd say for those quads, between 480-510.
