Try using SetFSB or EasyTune to get those last few MHz. That's what I had to do to get my E2180 to a 2GHz over stock OC.

I figured you had already cleared the bios, but I figured I would bring it up just in case.

Alright so I am having trouble installing my Kingston HyperX DDR2 Ram, 2 sticks of 4GB works fine, all 8GB causes the computer to turn on, run for a little, and switch off, and then turn on again. No load screen, just fans working.

Here is a link to my CPU-Z ID
http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1713206

I made this post as a place holder I am going to turn off my computer and fill out all the BIOS information and will be back shortly.

Try each stick in the first slot, if they all pass, you might have a faulty slot. Repeat this test. if you pass, we need to look into over options an dpossible conflicts.

I wish I could challenge you guys...but I stuck all 4 sticks of RAM, and turned my BIOS from Turbo to Standard thanks to PapaSmurf's suggestion, and it works fine now.

Since it looks like my RAM is working, perhaps someone can spare a minute and point me in the right direction to overlock my Q9550 a little bit.

It looks like the motherboard is reading my PC8500 as PC6400.

They are not, I haven't touched BIOS yet, I am not sure what to tweak, the last time I tried my computer wouldn't boot until I reset BIOS.

The SPD of most PC2-8500 ram is set to PC2-6400 to make sure the system will at least post and allow you to get into the bios since for the most par they require 2.1-2.3vdimm instead of the standard 1.8vdimm. You need to manually make the following changes. It might require some additional tweaking to get them to run at full speed. Some of the newer Kingston HyperX T1's are having problems running at 1066 so you might have to run them at 999 instead.

Ok I did this, and now CPUID Says I am running at 533MHZ which I believe means I'm 1066MHZ. So now I am wondering how to overclock the Q9550, I see that we have the same coolers and processors
