Q9450 overclocked!

post #1 of 147
Thread Starter 
I overclocked my Q9450. It's at 3.4ghz @ 1.248v stable. 425x8, 1:1 FSB:RAM. Ram is at 2.1v, 5,5,5,18 2T.

I tried 450fsb with 1.352v with no luck. My temps went up to 71c in CoreTemp in a few minutes.

I also tried 437FSB, it was more stable but still it failed one of the worker threads in Prime95.

I'm happy with 3.4ghz!

yeah I can probably push to 500fsb but my memory is holding me back. i am looking at OCZs 8500 Reapers or Corsairs 8500 Dominator's. But then I was thinking about stepping up on my motherboard to the 790i also but I have exactly 86 days left to use that program so maybe I will wait for DDR3 to drop in prices also before I push it more.
