just bought Q9550 plz help with overclocking - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I would put the vCore around 1.32, raise up your northbridge volts as well as your FSB volts.1.5-1.4 respectively. And then raise up the FSB a little more.

What's the revision of your board, and what bios are you running? I've trying using that +0.5x ratio finetuning and the board totally ignores it using any other settings for the rest of the stuff.

It doesn't work like that. Like a poster mentioned earlier, your overclocking potential is determined by your individual chip; each processor is different, even if it's the same model within a family architecture. Someone might get 4GHz on the Q9550, but you might only get 3.8GHz. It's mostly determined by temperature, voltages, and how overclocking-friendly your motherboard is. I highly recommend you taking a look at the overclocking stickies in this Intel CPUs thread. It does a great job at explaining key hardware components, the function of your motherboard BIOS, a general guideline for easy step-by-step overclocking, and recommendations for freeware you can download to help assist you in testing for stability.

Here is the link: Overclocking Redefined

If you've never overclocked before, please read the guide. It will point you in the right direction. The last thing you want to do is dive head-first into overclocking without knowing your limitations; it's the easiest way to toss your hard earned money out the window. Read the guide, try minor tweaks on your own, and if you get stuck, we'll be here help.

You should enable Loadline Calibration if you haven't done a volt mod - it will reduce Vdroop a bit.
I'd suggest leaving the FSB + NB volts at normal now, see how you get on. You need to take the CPU voltage off of auto, it will supply way too much voltage and could overheat the chip.
Oh, and if you use Prime95 to test stability, you have to leave it to run successfully for 8 hours! OCCT is only 2 hours, as it tests the chip in different ways

Hi Guys,

I just got this setup as well, after frying my crosshasir and 8800 gts. A little water leak.LOL

Ive got mine set up on same M board and CPU. I am using HD 4870 power colour (also on water). The only survivor was the 2gb XMS 6400.

I am getting 3.61 staraight out of the box on 425 fsb. I am running a constant 30 c.

What is max voltage i can apply to vcore?

Any one got any ideas how much that ram will overclock? I knows all component are different its just nice to get an idea for referance.

It is my intention to swap ram to ocz flex 2 any experiences?
