1.4v is ok. just dont go over. im sure you could get away with lower. Eric defines CPU & NB GTL nicely here : http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...reference.html

What one to choose? The noctua is uglier, and has somewhat smaller blades, but the mist is maybe a tad less effective, even if I seriously doubt the 80 m3 airflow statement from noctua. No idea really. Just couldnt decide, so got them both
The Noctua is indeed uglier, but if you need a quiet fan, that would be the one to pick.

Went with your advice Spacegoast, and the Noctua really IS quiet. With the advice I got through this thread I am now running my cpu at 3.4 ghz (basically using your setup for 3.2ghz), and have put my ram at 800 for the time being, just to be able to know what goes wrong where and why (thanks Ericeod).

The best part about it is that my freshly installed Thermalright u 120 ex cools my core temps down to a comfortable 57-53-52-55 or close, after having run large fft's in prime for some 40 minutes. It blows the hot air straight outta there, with good help from the Antec 1200's fans. Am I happy so far? YES.

I'm using 1.3 for cpu voltage right now. Should I step down on this, just to see if I can spare the chip some stress from the voltage, or would you guys recommend that I just keep it at this if it works ok? Like I said earlier, I'm really not up to squeezing out every inch (or micron) out of my hardware. I just want to have a really fine computer up and running

Thanks again guys for making this oc sooo much easier than it would otherwise have been. I guess I COULD go even further if this goes all well, but I'll just have to see about that. A 600 mhz increase (times four) is no small difference in itself. But then again, I'll have to run this test for some more hours before I can bring out the cake and firecrackers.

Well you could try for lower cpu voltage, just to see what happens. If it is unstable just go back to what you had previously. Thats coll that you got it working though. Try to OC the RAM now that you got your chip overclocked. Pretty good temps woth the TRUE too. Nice job with that

Thanks man. I'm up at 3.51 ghz now though, and its at 58 degrees running well so far. Crazy good cooler this Thermalright

Judging from cpu-z, the cpu volt is actually at 1.265 v under load now (due to vdroop). Also turned down fsb term volt to 1.32, as indicated by ericeod in his suggestion range.

Well, I'll just let it cook during the night and working hours tomorrow, and then I'll go for the ram after that. Its laaate here now, but no worries. I'm about as happy as a dodo (before they got extinct).

I'll drop in to let you know how it fares guys. I'll probably also drop by some pics of the bios, for reference to others with similar hardware. Have a nice day good, wise people

Hello all,

Just new to the forum and I have a question about overclocking a Q9400 on the P5E motherboard. I want to lift it up from stock clock (2.66Ghz) to 3.0Ghz (375FSBx8MP). So yesterday I went into the BIOS, tested 340, 350, 360, 365, 370 FSB. All worked just fine, but when I entered 375 FSB it didn't boot anymore. RAM at 5-5-5-15-2T @ 1066Mhz 2.2v.

Isn't it possible to get it to 3.0Ghz with just stock voltages etc? I know the Q6600 can from 2.4 to 3.0.

Could anyone help me get the Q9400 to 3.0Ghz or maybe even to 3.6Ghz?

As you raised your FSB, did you make sure your ram was running within spec? Remember as you increase the FSB, you are also increasing the ram speed and will have to lower the divider to maintain stable speeds. in your bios, just put the NB Strap to auto and select a ram speed that is as close to recommended specs as possible. it also wouldnt hurt to increase your NB voltage to 1.30v - 1.35v.

Hi ericeod. Just wondering. I'm now running the nb volt at 1.41, with an fsb termination voltage @ 1.4 to ensure that fsb is not the issue here. I see you operate with lower nb voltages than other ppl here. What would be your say in running the P5E @ an fsb of 413 (which I am trying out now).

Also, would you say that cpu-z shows fairly accurate cpu voltage values, or should I be cautious in believing it? I have put the cpu voltage @ 1.3625 in the bios, but cpu-z shows 1.296 or 1.306 under load here. At idle its about 1.320. Hope I will get it up at 3.51 ghz now. Looking better and better though. Well, temps are really good for the cpu at least.

Thanks.

Ah right, that could be the problem... I'll have a check when I get back home.

Thanks.

The reason I was running a lower NB voltage in the screenshots on the first page is because it was with a dual core. it just takes less votage compared to a quad because the quad puts more stress on the NB. On my current Rampage Formula board, I am running NB at 1.45v for a 423 FSB OC.

As for you Termination voltage, 1.32v - 1.34v will be the max you should ever need. I wouldnt leave it at 1.4v.


Here are my current voltages:

There we go, working just fine now. Memory running @ DDR2-1000 now. Core voltage is at 1.2v... might get it lower, don't know. Going to stress a bit now and continue to 3.1 till 3.6 or 3.7Ghz.
