@think3r- I was referrring to HondaGuy's pics. Because when I saw it, I thought "woah" because it showed. Because it said "552" so if you double that it would be running at 1104. That's when I was a bit suspicious. Maybe I am looking it at wrong?

Well, I decide to OC some more. After, a few crash and burn. I've found this setup stable for me so far. Not sure if it will remain stable after a few game testing . Should I also try playing with the values of the cores? It's currently set to -2% all cores.

Hey, so my OC is still not as good as what I once had it, does having ganged mode turned on effect overclocking?

XP w/CnQ:  84WCPU Temp: 26-27C
XP wo/CnQ: 106WCPU Temp: 30-31C
P95 Sml FFTs: 210WCPU Temp: 51-52C

I wonder if there is any power usage difference of a video card when in the BIOS compared to running in Windows at idle, any thoughts on that?

Raisethe3, no you're correct. His memory is at 1141

PaperKuts, from what I've seen most users tend to run the memory in "unganged mode". I suggest testing both methods to see what gives you the best results.

As previously mentioned are you capable of overclocking this processor as a dual-core and not while it's a quad-core?

Edgemeal, that is a great question actually. Since the bios isn't using anything "graphically" intensive I would have to say no. The video card is probably sitting idle during this time.

Good luck

HondaGuy, those are crazy overclocks. Almost 3Ghz NB Frequency and 170Mhz overclock on the memory



Paperkuts, are you capable of overclocking anything while the processor is a dual-core?

Good luck
I'm getting my OC back, think the power went out when I was at work over at the end of last week, threw my PC out but I have a surge protector so hardware is fine. Didnt try to OC in dual core, jus put it straight back to quad, gonna try for 3.5Ghz tonight currently jus under 3.4Ghz.

Cheers

PaperKuts, we just wanted to make sure you were still able to overclock the 550BE as a dual-core. With all the problems you've had it sounds like the other two cores are may be somewhat iffy.

Good luck buddy
