Thanks... yeah should make the UL/UK game something to watch, for sure, with Pitino and Calipari's history.

Right on. Do you Fold? That is another reason to worry about stability.

And NoGuru doesn't stress test.. he pours on the voltage and keeps a fire extinguisher on hand

Well, well a couple of B ball fan boys. No I only check for stability if I plan on running at those volts. Not needed for benchmarking. dennyb you should consider folding. A man of your age should think about stuff like that. And last night I had planned on making my Comp sound like the General Lee jumping but I wife high jacked it all night.

Actually NoGuru i don't think folding or any medical science is going to cure me of my ailment( terminal stupidity) I figured you would be blasting me by now for downclocking from 4.0 to 3.6. Thought you might suggest putting lipstick and a skirt on my PC while running a "sissy overclock"

As for my age(nearly 65)all I can say is "I'm not as good as I once was,but I'm as good once as I ever was"

See that Grish old people can be funny too. Been a little busy to notice, why are you running @ 3.6?

Actually I have been experimenting with various speeds for the past 3 weeks. I don't game like you youngsters, so i don't need 4.0 for solitaire. I have found that 3.6 "feels" like a good speed and at the same time doesn't put much demand on my rig. I don't need or use that kind of speed,so I settled(for now) on 3.6. Don't be trying to get my neighbor-Grish- to help you gang up on me either. He is a Kentucky Gentleman and would never throw in with you against a fellow hillbillie. Just so you know

Lmao I want to try a few different settings myself because I son't game all that much ether. It's more for the fun of "How much horsepower can I give er". But the wife needs it so I can't break till I find a job. Nothing here in MI so I might have to become a hillbillie but just to make some White Lighting.

Anyone running a Q9450 on this board? I am looking for a decent starting point to over clock to at least 3.8.

Thanks for your help.

Although I am not running the same CPU, I will try to give you some general guidelines for overclocking on it(this is from an old persons perspective NoGuru).Generally speaking this board will get you an easy 15% on stock voltages. From that point you will most likely have to start raising voltage in order to support higher clocks. I have found that there are 3 voltages that you will primarily be involved with. They are--V-Core-CPU Term and MCH Core. I loosely try to stay close to the ratio that you find those 3 relating to each other @ stock in the BIOS . Let's say you are at a point where you need to start raising. Bump the V-Core 2 notches,bring the Cpu Term up to where it is 2 notches below the new V-core setting. Bring the MCH Core up 1,"maybe" 2 notches from stock setting. You won't need as much MCH as the other 2 voltages. Raise your speed and run short tests until you get to your desired speed, raising those voltages as you increase your speed. Then run a full array of tests. Try to keep your CPU Term 2 notches below V-Core and Mch about 2 notches below Term. Hope this helps you

edit: when you reach 3.8, I seriously doubt you will need over 1.28v on MCH-most likely 1.24/1.26

edit again: Tweek,I forgot to tell you that the above settings are for use with LLC enabled while overclocked. Old people are funny like that -we all lose our memory

hmm i have my Q9400 @ 3.75ghz with weird settings... 1.45v vcore in bios (1.424 with vdroop), 1.4v mch core and 1.36 for VTT =X.. try not to exceed 1.4v for VTT as it is know to kill 45nm quad chips, if not kill,degrade..
