Ok. Is the price of the Q9650 very far from the Q9550 that it isn't worth getting it over the Q9550? And what stepping should I get? How about the X3360?
Well when you say "the best" that is perception. So it depends on what you will be doing with the PC. A QX series chip is very nice. The Q9650 has a 9X multi for about an extra $100 bucks.
The E*** chips are great for gaming, and clock very high.
The X series chips are for servers and clock very well, but you will pay a premium.

For 4.8 534 try this,
PCI-E 101
1000 mV
1000 mV
cpu 50ps
MCH 50ps
Latch 333
2.40B 1281 mhz 5-5-4-10
vcore 1.481
term 1.42-1.44
PLL 1.59-1.61
CPU ref .785
MCH ref .760
Just no luck at anything in the 4.8 range. As far as MCH, it seems to like around 1.42, but I will test from 1.40-1.60, and play with the same type of ref's you do for both CPU and MCH.
I'll give these settings a try, and test the refs in a few combos, and see how it works out.
Thanks for the input. As always, +rep

Opps, sorry for the double post.

Double Edit:Got the TeamGroup in the freezer for a few minutes. DAyum they run hot!

Ok. So you're staying for a Q9550 for a good price/performance ratio? Can the X series chips work for retail boards or just for server boards?

I'm on Q6600 and I don't want to downgrade to E*** chips if you call that a downgrade

Right now I use the 0.800 for the cpu ref and 0.760 for mch (0.800 if im using the blades), although Jor seemed to get away with the 0.760 for cpu when he had it. Its been awhile since I clocked 4.8-4.9 on air so I cant remember exactly what mine needed and this is the only air ss I have showing voltages.

Yes the Q9550 is the best price/performance chip for a Quad. The X series chip will work as long as it's a 775 socket chip. If you look at the specs, it's just a Q9550.

@Hoss, thanks bro, I will give it a shot.

Yeap they have the same specs as the Q9550 but I'm hearing that they do have better VID range hence better overclocking capability, is that right?

Yeah they usually clock high at low volt's. If you can grab one I would, if the price was right.

The Q9550 have broader VID range, does that mean it is better? Or a tighter VID range is better?
