Hi, I'm new , but I've been reading the forum and after seeing this last post I decided to register once and for all .
This mod is great for those who still work and play with our 775.
Yesterday finished making the mod cutting the socket my motherboard, using the microcode in bios and putting a sticker X5460 .
Everything works properly , is a very powerful cpu .
My computer is a :
Asus P5Q Pro bios v2102 - 02/23/2009 KETS MOD with microcode applied .
CPU : X5460 3.16
H80 Water Cooling
2x4 Memory GEIL DDR2 6400 ( 1066 mhz)
2GB 680GTX nvidia GPU .
2 SSD RAID0 mode working
Currently the X5460 is working stable at 3.8 ghz .
But I'm looking for a better OC this cpu and not where to start.
I wish I could take it to the 4.5 to 4.7 ghz , but I tried the options in the bios are not stable ... crashes , blue screen of death .
The ASUS P5Q Pro has options that want confirgurar well for this cpu, but not that put options :Multiplier: 9.5
NORTH BRIDGE: AUTO, 333 - 400 mhzCPU Voltage : ?
Reference CPU GTL : 0.65x - 0.63x - x
PPL voltge CPU : ?
Termination FSB Voltage : ?
DRAM Voltage : 2.20 stock voltage
NB Voltage : ?
SB Voltage : ?
PCIE SATA Voltage : 1.50
I would get a 50% OC about 4.5 ghz or ... 4.7GHz . But i don´t have idea to get correct setting in my bios.
If anyone needs the modified bios with microcode for this board, I can upload my bios to mega .
