VID Mod for Core 2 Q9550???

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Now, I have tried a tweak from another site that made the chip run unstable, so I know it can be tweaked using pin-mod, but I'm looking for a STABLE mod. My computer's bios is locked and I'm running Windows 8, so not many OC software programs (if any at all) are available for a new OS and an obsolete DELL frown.gif.

I seen another site that had a mod for a Q9650 and a couple users had mentioned that it would work for a 9550. Well, I tried it, and it doesn't! Unless there is someone here that can prove me wrong and say that it does! I can't seem to find the exact site where I got it from, but here is one a bit similar: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?232678-E8xxx-Q9xx0-FSB-1600-pin-mod

Yes, I know I'm better off "getting this" or "getting that", so unless you want to give me the cash for "this" or "that" then =X !

Motherboard: Intel X38
Dell XPS 420
BIOS V. A07


btw, I'm using Quick Grid (window defogger) for modification. If this may have something to do with it, I'd like to know; but it shouldn't as I had no problem using it on my Q6600. From the looks of the photo posted on the link I provided above, it seems as though some of the tape is covering and/or wrapping around under the circuit board of the chip. I doubt that has anything to do with anything, but as a n00b I'm learning new things every day.

the pin mod works fine if your chip and mobo can do the fsb on stock volts.

issue is not all will.

yes you would be better getting a p45 ud3p thumb.gif
