OC my QX9650 to 4.4-4.5 Help....

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guy's interesting enough on my 790I Ultra I can OC my QX9650 to 4.0 all day long and leave the bios voltages at auto. The benefit seems to be very cool temps. Full load is around 50c-52c. I really would like to be able to hit 4.4 - 4.5. The voltages that it takes to get there cause my CPU to instantly jump to 71-72C so of course i don't want to go down that road.

I'm hoiping that one of you guys has voltage settings you could let me try out on a succesfull 4.5 or 4.4 run.

Thanks

How much voltage does it take to run stable @ 4.0?

Well most people say to find the OC you like and then lower your voltages one notch at a time until you get the lowest possible voltage for that OC.

I like to take a different route though. I set my vcore voltage to show ~1.400 in Windows (via CPU-Z) right off the bat when OC'ing farther than 3200mhz. If I am comfortable with this voltage and temperature, I start to raise the FSB until I find the highest possible FSB to run with that voltage.

Since you are worried about temps, set the voltage to something you feel comfortable with to stay within the temps you like, and then just start trying faster and faster FSB's and hopefully you'll hit your 4400mhz mark and not be worried about cooking your CPU..

In Scooby-Snack's case the safest bet would be to be under 1.37v while trying your method right? Or at least such is the max voltage for the QX9650.

OC'ing with an unlocked multi seems like it would take a lot more time :/
