Just be sure it's getting direct air 'cause NForce NB gets hot as a mother.

No it actually only gets red on 1.84V on the NB, it gets yellow from 1.70 - 1.82V but i think on 1.84 its instantly fried or something tongue.gif

My memory is at 1066, 5-5-5-15 unlinked, just what it should do, so not overclocked or anything.

Going to try 1.46V now redface.gif

Keep the NB under 1.5V I believe, and keep it cool.

Just check your memory with CPUz to make sure it's at the correct speed.

so I just swapped my E8400 for a Q9550 on the same mobo. Going to start cranking it up this weekend so I am curious as to how everything is working out for OP. Any input you can share would be much appreciated as I am trying to determine the best way to start.

ON ASUS P5Q3 Deluxe WiFi the Q9550 has fun
I tryed downclocking also, I leave it on 2.4Ghz with 300FSB and I have DDR3 1200mhz 1.5v (RIPJAWS red)
The Vcore takes with Vdrop enabled & BIOS setting is 0.95625 volts
tested with prime95 64bit. Doesn't even sweat.

Otherwise I don't even overclock this monster I like it on 2.83Ghz with BIOS setting of Vcore 1.08125 volts
So I played Crysis2, BF3, SHIFT2, all work swell, just depend of graphics. I got 6950 1gb, pretty little beast (2gb preffer)
Still depends also on muzic AUDIO card (I use X-FI on PCI slot > I guess PCIEx1 slot work smoother with Motherboard)
I tryed 400FSB and 3.4Ghz but such a small difference I don't acctualy use O.C. aldo I got perfect board for it.
Q9550 with 12mb cache is the winner for 775 socket. period
