Has anyone tried to OC an Q9450 with this Mobo, and if so how far did you manage to OC it on Air-cooling. Post Temps if possible.

Thanks.

I finally reformatted for the first time sense I had my AB9 QuadGT. When I bought this MB I never actually reformatted and installed Vista lol. I also updated to the newest BIOS and have brand new Tracers. As soon as I have the majority of my apps/utilities installed I will OC her again. I went through three sets of RAM so far. Actually I am on my third right now, but I don't even like them and I haven't even tested or ran them out of "auto" yet. I have to RMA another set of Ballistix to Crucial and then I will sell the two sets and get some G.Skill.

Now that I finally have some stable ram, i.e. NOT crucial ballistix, I can get back to overclocking. Right now I'm back to stable at 3.6GHz (450x8) but I need a very high amount of northbridge voltage, 1.703v (bios), 1.66v (actual) to get it stable. Is that safe? I added a fan to the northbridge heatsink so it stays under 50°C load (will be cooler once i get my chipset water block). How much voltage is too much? I'm kinda afraid to overclock any higher since it requires so much juice. Any thoughts on this?

I think I read on clunk's or in this thread that over 1.6 for NBcore is not good for longterm or 24/7. The NB temps can run up to 60C and be ok.

I got this board last week. I have my q6700 to 3.0 right now. Ill probably try to get it around 3.6 sometime tomorrow. What is the cool and quiet function on this board called? It keeps dropping my multiplier when idle and right now and I don't want it to do that. There are a ton of options in the bios and I couldn't quite figure out what it was under.

Go into the genie settings then the cpu feature then turn off everything but the last one. To stop multi from dropping in XP you can just go to home office power setup to disable speedstep and then into portable/laptop to enable it. You can turn off Speed Step by disabling PPM(EIST) in the bios. Turn off C1E as well.

Is there a good way to know which GTL REF voltage settings to use for a particular CPU VID Special Add setting? Or am I doing this all wrong?

I read around online for a bit and it looked like the best way to go about overclocking on this board was to increase CPU VID Special Add which adds a percentage voltage. After this is done then the GTL ref volt setting should be decreased right? I tried a couple different settings and I think I went as low as .638 when the vid special add was at 162. DO I need to keep lowering this or is there another problem.

Oh and for all of this the NB voltage is bumped up three or four slots and the CPU FSB was set to 350. I was looking to hit 350x10 today.

Don't touch the GTL or CPU VTT. Those two go together and the charts for the LT model on clunks forums and other places are not same as DK. I'm running 427 x 7.5 without touching CPU VTT or any of the GTL settings. Just add CPU VID special add. 12.5mV is 0.0125v. So every 12.5mV you give it add another 0.0125v to the vcore you see in bios or whatever.

Thanks that helped me get it to a stable 3500 but my temps are around 68C loading all 4 cores with p95 largefft. I'm gonna need to do some lapping later today if I want to take it any higher. At what point do you need to start worrying about the CPU VTT and GTL voltages?
