Can someone help me out with this?
Thanks a bunch.
I have a similar setup of Q9550 and Asus P5QC (supports both DDR2 and DDR3 memory but it's very similar to your P5Q3)..
Here are my 3.8 - 3.9GHz (450 - 460MHz FSB) stable settings:
Here are settings that need to be applied (leave all other settings at AUTO
Ai Overclock Tuner = MANUAL
CPU Ratio = 8.5x
FSB = 450MHz
DRAM freq = 1200MHz
DRAM Timings = 8-8-8-24 and the rest on AUTO
Vcore=1.xxV (what your CPU needs for 3.8GHz my is OK with 1.30V,add more voltage if it's unstable)
CPU GTL = 0.63x
vFSB = 1.30V
vNB = 1.36V
vRAM = 1.66V
vSB = 1.10V
PCIE/SATA voltage = 1.50V
Load Line Calibration = ENABLED
CPU Spread Spectrum = DISABLED
PCIE Spread Spectrum = DISABLED
CPU Skew = AUTO
NB Skew = AUTO
Performance ModeKeep your Vcore,vNB and vFSB under 1.40V for 24/7 operation..
Keep your core temperatures under 75C at all time!!P.S.
: That motherboard like many P5Q series mobos (except for P5Q Premium,Deluxe and P5Q-E) is not able to run FSB higher than 460MHz with a C2Quad processor due lack of advanced CPU GTL voltage option in BIOS..
For any other info regarding your setup check out Asus P5Q Pro TURBO/Pro/TURBO owners club
