Low volts for that speed. That's what I think. And I actually enjoy reading english when its phrased differently...expands my mind a little bit.

Hey guys, this is waht Ive managed stable for 24/7 use on my X3360 (same chip as the Q9550):

Wow! Cool graph! I wanna be in the cool club w/ the other 4jigghurtz guys.

Ok, so I found a pretty neat forum, pureoverclock. In there I found owner's threads for both my chip and board. But what I didn't expect to see was other Maximus boards running the NB up to 55C!! For whatever reason, I had it in my head that 42C was it...after that stability would go to hell. Wrong. I'm giving the X38 1.62 volts! It stays between 43~46 (I've got a neat little blue 40mm on the top).

But best of all, it's stable @ 3.6Ghz now @ 1.8V loaded. Which is lower than I had it and works out well since the previous settings turned out to be a little less than stable. Honestly, after all the work I've been through, I'm just going to leave it @ 3.6 for awhile. Just knowing it's stable and temps stay below 54C w/ linpack make me a happy Jod.

Anyway, just thought I'd chime in case anyone else's got a power hungry X38 that hates Quads.

I've been lurking on this thread for a couple of days now, and I finally got my q9550 yesterday. Its E0 stepping, and VID is 1.212. Got mines to 3.4 ghz stable. Validation here http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1386241 I can't push the bus speed to more than 400mhz, or it won't boot into OS, even if I set cpu core to 1.36v. I got this q9550 from OCN seller Nemesi5. He can do 4ghz on air with 1.23v. After a couple hours of google, I figure its my p35 ds3l board. It does not like quad cores. Oh well I can settle for a 500+ mhz overclock. Can I join?

ya those EP35-DS3L's are decent for duals and P4's... There are a few options out there for boards to push a 9550.. some can be found new at newegg or some can be found here.. decent OC none the less with what your dealing with.
maybe a board and memory upgrade would be ideal for you since you have an awesome chip..
if you stayed with a gigabyte board there are not many good options out there for new.... unless your going to step up and buy some dual channel DDR3.

The P35-DS3L doesn't have a problem with Quads for the most part. Try loosening up the timings on the ram and increasing the vdimm by a notch or two to see if they can be overclocked. That might be what is holding you back. I ran my Q9550 on my P35-DS3L at 3.7 - 3.8GHz (about 440 to 450fsb) with some Corsair PC-6400 CL5 ram before I got my EP45-DS3P. That was on a Rev 1.0 board with the F9 bios with the ram timings at 6-6-6 instead of the specified 5-5-5.

^ It stalled again after the bios. It could be my ram, its gskill pc6400. I gave it +3volts, loosen timings to 6-6-6-18, set it to 424mhz and it stalled 2 times after bios. FSB and MCH have +2v. I have a Rev 2.0 with f9 bios. Oh well I'll upgrade the board and ram in a year or two, and overclock it to 4.2ghz btw i'm getting great temps on this q9550, 55 C load and 37 C idle. thanks anyways

Hey all. I hope everyone is doing well. I just wanted to post really quick to let you all know that I haven't forgotten about updates. I just moved this weekend and don't have net access or my rig set up yet (posting this from my phone). I should have everything set up in the next couple of days so, time permitting, I'll do the next update then. Until then, be well and keep those CPU clocks high!
