with 4 mem sticks you might have to increase the nb voltage.

why not give your oc a change by just using 2 sticks and see how you get on?some have had trouble using more than 2 sticks.

Shouldn't make a difference P5Q has a good memory controller. I run 4x1 sticks and for me 1.34NB is enough although I keep it at 1.38 I've had the fsb past 450.

How did you stress test your system? Did you do a Prime blend test?

I use a 1.52 FSB term you need that at high FSB.

Your timings will need to be adjusted however that refresh cycle time needs to be raised. My ram does the same thing if I leave it at auto.
There is a big difference between overclocking dual and quad core processors on this board. In my experience, reaching a high FSB with a quad core on this board requires a higher NB voltage than reaching the same FSB with a dual core. With a quad and this board I need 1.46 NB voltage to make 450 FSB blend stable.

Okay guys I think I have decided to stay at 3.6ghz right now. I rose the settings and my computer would not boot. It almost gave me the same heart attack having my last board die on me had.

I pulled out the CMOS battery and almost thought it was not going to boot then it did.
I just wanted to get 1ghz over stock. Guess that will wait. I guess 100 mhz is not worth killing a motherboard over. Thanks for the help guys and I think I repped all of you but I'll make sure.

I think your expectations were quite high for that chip. At 3.6 it will run anything you throw at it, so be happy.

You can probably get some relevant reference numbers there. 1st page. Check it out.

P.S. Mechrock, thanks for the REP... I was wondering if you have check the tips on the 1st page of this thread?
Is that page not for the e8400?
Yeah the page is where I got the setting to first start the overclock.
I guess after reading up on the q8400 I was lucky to get 3.6. I hope RMAing my graphics card won't take too long. They might give me a gts 250 instead of a 9800gt which I guess could work. I'm playing Crysis right now ccc lvl 4. Should be able to do 5 with gts 250 and max gta4 then.

Thanks again for the help. I might come back for more as I try and lower the voltages on my OC for 3.6.

I just wanted to get 1ghz over stock. Guess that will wait. I guess 100 mhz is not worth killing a motherboard over. Thanks for the help guys and I think I repped all of you but I'll make sure.
have you tried ai clock twister if its on auto just try lighter to stronger as this can have an effect on your oc.on my e52 liked it or worked fine on stronger but my e84 with the same hardware refused to boot until i changed to lighter.
just something else for you to try,fine tuning can help and be the difference between a really good oc.
