This board for me seems to be the best overall board in the Internet universe!
Allright as I catch up in the overclocking World and finally get started in building Three Computers and modifying my Hp Q9450 media Center started with The hp to get my fingers Dirty.i bought the HpMedia center 2 months ago refurb UBid for 600.00.At the time a Good deal as I needed something to go with my Ebay DLp projector 360 and 190.00 150 diagnol screen.Hey my 5yrold Nforce Athlon 3200 just didn't cut it anymore and its backup.Couldnt play quake four medal of Honor, forever loading MM6 with a large playlist had to be carefull with my plugins computer frose. at the time a huge step from hauling cases of records CDS.Amateur Dj.Pluss wanted to make edit vidios to go with the Music.
Alright Last night went well.Upgraded Hp from puny HDMi 8600Gt 1 lousy dvi to
8800 1gig Akimbo 100.new shipped Ebay.Yup buying the other Asus Mobos helped as this was a job fitting that Monster in the Case cuz of course this OEM crap board sata connections were underneath the rear of the Akimbo ah angled Sata connector.Didn't mind loosing The Tv vivo Tuner or whatever it is cuz never used it have OOL cable.Buying the other Stuff and stockpiling helped as the 25.00 New 680 watt PSU only had 2 Sata power but had Two adaptors to get T 4.So cool the Way Hp built this case only 1hour to figure out how to find hidden levers and push out blu ray burner for one lousy PSU connection to the front of the case and to disconect the HD enclosure assembly.Hey so what could not Close the side panel because the new cooler
29.00 Amazon special bought 5,Vendetta II sticks out? I pulled out my jigsaw/drills and cut a clean circular hole and mounted a blue Led Yan loon fan with chrome Guard soooo cool!!.Shoosh spent two months buying bidding stock piling preparing for this! Ahh no overclock feature in oem asus Hp crap board oh well some research.All right why I wait for a deal on Newegg/ebay/mwav etc on an asus microatx to fit into Hp frankenstien mobo to use with 4gig 800 OCZ ram with mb conections to match the current mobo.OCZ super deal at Negg50bucks after rebate! Got lucky that She fired up after 3 times without the made in rice field generic 4gigs ram might be decent will throw into another build or sell it with Hp crap board on ebay.With a bit of luck a used asus P5Vm shows up but then havent figured out if bios chip is soldered yet! Let me cut this RANt short need to get something to eat finished at 5 AM woke up at 1pm and went back at it.After everest CPU Z PLL chip attempt at overclock got me to 2.8 then freeze. will try BSEL mod.If she boots loads for awhile gets unstable need more juice its obvious.This g33 bearcrap Asus Mobo is used with E8500 E8400 and Q6600 Q6700 and who knows what else.The q6600 default voltage is higher than q9450.Okay have to fool the board with a Vid mod on q9450!!!!!Maybe? or perhaps a V droop mod on the board?
Anybody got a Clue?
Thanks.figure this is a good place as I will have 3 Q9450 Asus Computers and one E8500 Diamond 7.Hey frys had an awesome deal several weeks ago bought 2 at
265.00 each! Hey I am not cheap Guys just FRUGAL and patient think I will have a beer first before eating something its already saturday night LOL.
Any help appreciated.
I have the other boards Asus p5k wifi and pe3 deluxe wifi but they do not fit into the Hp nor does the D7 and anyways already bought the cases and I got fond of the Hp case and built the rolling adjustable tower of the DLp projector arround it.The other cases do not fit.Also if I succeed could post it to help others who bought this $%I* computer.
One last fall back have a used E6400 to throw in it and overclock it.Keep the Q9450 for another board and throw it in the Hp?
But nothing ventured nothing gained!!!!! Thanks for any info!!!!
