Sounds good - keep the low multiplier of the Q9450 (8x) in mind though...

Good combo. May need to cool DFI NB down as 8x puts the pressure on.

About the low multiplier, as long as my temps are good I'm ok right? Everything is running stable and temps are great (never above 40) so I shouldn't have any problems right? I mean I'm not really shortening the life of my CPU?

What's your Vcore? Temperatures are one thing, but just make sure you are not running the chip above reference voltage (1.5V) if you want it to last as long as possible.

Can the DFI handle 500 FSB? Because thats what you're going to need to justify getting a Q9450 over a Q6600. If you're absolutely set on the 45nm quad then you would be much better off getting an X48/790i and some DDR3 because thats what you would need for 4GHz stable.

I'm gonna have to check it out when I get home. Thanks for the tips though.

I disagree with your DDR3 and mobo recommendations... A good 2x2gb 1000mhz kit of DDR2 memory costs ~$99 shipped, and will easily allow for 500FSB+. Also I have seen a few posts over at XS where people had achieved 500FSB with a quad on their DFI UT P35-T2R(perhaps even the DK version), though typically quads wall out between 460-480 on P35 chipset boards. Perhaps the X38 mobo is worthy upgrade option over the P35? I've seen more consistent 500FSB quads on that chipset vice the p35.

Yeh its got to over 600fsb but i doubt i will get that high
