post #291 of 810
Hey guys,

Just upgraded my rig last week, I always bought AMD but decided to hop the fence this time, and I must say I am not deceived! The Q9300 is limited by its low multiplier, but its a very powerful chip nonetheless.

My case is watercooled, and i'm currently running at 3.22GHz @ 1.26 VCore. I tried pushing it higher (3.40GHz) , system was stable but chip got too hot for my taste when VCore was set to 1.32V+ (RealTemps reached 63°C when running Prime95). I read that the Q9300's limit was around 71°C, but with all the confusing/undocumented info on the Tjmax I'd rather play safe and keep temps a bit lower.


@Mono_1 : I don't really know that mobo but found a thread explaining the QDR (it seems to represent your FSB x 4) - you can find the thread here: http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...os-help-2.html

More info/screenshots to come!

@chupstix
Welcome, RealTemp seems to be the best ATM for telling close to the right temps. We are still looking into what the issue is with the differance from BIOS to programs used to tell the temps. Most are still 10c higher that BIOS temps. So more to come.

@tonyhague
Welcome, nice to see so many willing to take a chance on the awesomeness of the Q9300. I know it is said that the Q6600 is a better buy, but stock VS stock the Q9300 wins almost every time. I also like that I have a 45nm chip with SSE4.

@Mono_1
Nice OC, I updated your speed but what is your vcore in BIOS?

temp thing - not just me then, different apps showing wildly different temps, coretemp +everest showing 52,48,49+56 (idle!) ITS smart guardian (supplied with my mobo) and speedfan both showing around 25, no idea which to believe, only used a small amount of thermal paste, all should be good

@ raginggumby
Sorry to hear about the cat, I'm a cat man myself and between me and my wife we have 3 cats and a son on the way. Still looking for the right Temp Program but I do know Real Temp 2.60 is out now, and it's a lot better than before.
