Finally...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
after so much saving and waiting i got my Quad Core Q9550, now i want to push it to it's limits, any advice?


this is the first test after installing it with no overclock




those are my new OCZ Reaper CrossFire Edition 1066


and this is a little overclock (i haven't had time enough to play with it)

Nice.
That should be able to get to 4 easy

You'll need a new HSF though, the Freezer 7 Pro won't cut it....a T.R.U.E. is what you'll need.

Good luck!

I have the same motherboard with a TRUE. You'll have to use a 120x25mm fan on a TRUE instead of a 120x38mm because of your RAM. It will fit though. I have both an Antec 300 and a 900. It'll fit.. with little room to spare, but it'll go in.

Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme. It's one of the best CPU coolers on the market. If you want to do some serious overclocking on that chip I recommend you look into one.

The TRUE (Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme) is pretty massive, but one of the best air coolers around. Not sure if it would fit on your board though (although I'd guess it would, looking at it). I would look at the dimensions and then measure around your board to make sure, or just Google someone else trying to use it with the same board.

The AC Freezer 7 Pro isn't bad though, I'd at least give it a shot before upgrading.

It looks like you've already overclocked your Q9550 by 500-600MHz. Nice work so far (you can definitely go higher, given reasonable temps, of course ). I'd test it out with Prime 95 (select the Small FFT's test) to check for stability. I run it for 5-10 minutes between overclocks, then 8-12 hours for a final overclock.

You can also run the Intel BurnTest. It stresses your CPU a great deal in a very short amount of time. *But be warned: your temps may soar!* This thing can be torture on your CPU.

PS: Dude, your profile pic is badass.
