Help getting Q9550 stable - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
Im running blend, should I run a different test? Probably the one that works the CPU more?

Its seeming more stable working with these..

Memory Clock mode- Unlinked
FSB - 1600 (400x8.5)
Memory timing- 4-4-4-15 T2 @ 800mhz

Vcore- 1.280 (CPUZ/EVEREST)
DRAM- 2.110
HT voltage- 1.44
NB voltage- 1.44
SB voltage- auto


But I as still failing prime.. core#3 failed on me after 3 mins. More Vcore?

Maybe time to look at the GTL references.

Where is ericeod when you need him?

Hmm, well prime has ran for 3 hours with core#4 failing after 10 mins. All the rest are still running. Im at 1.48 vcore, could it maybe be temps? RealTemp is reading 67 67 63 60, too high?

I didnt see anything about GTL ref in my BIOS. What is that?

Your temps do seem a bit on the high side.

Id be looking at areas other than vcore, my q9550 will pull a stable 3.4ghz at below its vid of 1.1875.And for 3.66 i use a vcore of 1.248 (loaded, idle is 1.28-1.30).

Whats your CPU termination/vtt set to?

=\\ I thought so, I think I broke a bracket on my current HSF, so it might not have as good contact as it should be. Im just going to order a new HSF, probably the XIGMATEK HDT-S1284. its only $30 at newegg right now with a $10 MIR and its right behind the TRUE in performance.

pretty new to OCing not sure where to check for the CPU term/ VTT..? in my BIOS i guess, ill look around.

Okay, well I think I have it stable finally.

Memory Clock mode- Unlinked
FSB - 1600 (400x8.5 = 3.4)
Memory timing- 4-4-4-15 T2 @ 800mhz

Vcore- 1.25 (CPUZ/EVEREST)
DRAM- 2.110
HT voltage- 1.46
NB voltage- 1.46
SB voltage- auto

Ive been running Small FFT for about 8 hours with no errors. Going to let it run til when I get home from work. Only thing im concerned about is tempature.. its @ 70 70 66 65 on readings from RealTemp after 8 hours of prime, should I look into a better cooler?

Yeah, you definitely need a better cooler. What do you have now? You never filled it in your system specs.

Ive been using an ASUS Arctic Square , It did well with my E8500 @ 3.8 was about 35c idle and 45c load. But when I had put this new CPU in Im pretty sure I had busted a bracket, so im just going to order a XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 because I read very great things about it all the time. Also picking up the Retention Bracket kit for it, because I hear it a ***** to install without it.

Thanks for the help!
