R.D.BID, could it be some program(s) or service(s) running in the background that keeps your CPU running low instead of idling?

Open up Task Manager and sort the "Processes" tab by CPU to find your culprit. When I ran Crossfire, I don't remember this happening for me, but it might be something with more recent cards/drivers (I have two 4850s).

My only guess is that it could be a program that has started running that's on a schedule, such as virus scan or a backup service. For example, every few days Windows Media Center updates the TV listings for my TV tuner and it sucks up a surprisingly large chunk CPU clocks to do so.

Nice find! Apparently my two Dominator kits have two different sets of ICs. Would this matter? What types are considered "best", or is it mainly focused on maximizing compatibility?

P.S.: Try set SB voltage and PCIE SATA voltage at stock voltages instead of leaving them on AUTO or increasing them.

Also, as for RAMs, I've searched and found DDR2 RAMs with the IC chip they use

Yes, that guide was one of the first things I started reading when I found this forum. I especially like the part that enabling SpeedStep saves me 10ct/day! Haha

According to your guide, I should mess around with upping my NB and SB voltages to get my memory to run stable when running in "asynchronous" mode.

But you say I should try stock values instead? How do I know the stock values, other than just putting it on auto?
Anyway, hopefully I can dick around whith this some more this evening.

@ ZonderZout


Stock voltage values for your rig are:


Stock Vcore = VID of processor red in CoreTemp [don't go over 1.40V under LOAD]

FSB voltage = 1.10V for your 45nm Q9550 (65nm processors have 1.20V stock vFSB) [don't go over 1.40V]

CPU GTL = 0.65x ( should be 0.67x but that value is not available in your P5Q Pro BIOS)

PLL voltage = 1.50V [don't go over 1.60V]

NB voltage = 1.10V for P45 chipset [don't go over 1.40V on AIR cooling]

SB voltage = 1.10V [no need for change]

PCIE/SATA voltage = 1.50V [no need for change]

RAM voltage = what's your memory's spec [don't go over 2.3V on memory with heat-spreaders]

Hi all, was told to post here if i needed any help with my P5Q Pro.

I think i got my overclock on my E8500 worked out, just double checking a few things as im pretty new to this.

Im running 400x9.5 right now with my vore at 1.3v. I really didn't know what i should do with the other voltages and settings so i used KingT's E8XXX template in the OP. Im guessing that i could actually go a tad lower on some of them since im only going to 3.8 but i think it might be fine.

Its just that i read that it was a really bad idea to keep any of the voltages on auto as they could actually throttle higher then whats safe so i figured his settings were good to use.

I'v been running Prime 95 for 12 hours straight with no errors on blend, can i stop now or should i keep going? My max temp was 65C in realtemp, so thats fine right? Getting a 6970 tomorrow to throw in so want to have it stable.

Thanks for all the great information!

Hi there,smart move by checking out this owner's club..

You could've also used a 3.8GHz OC template for Q9550 + P5Q Pro (no real difference vs E8xxx chip in the term of voltages)

But my E8xxx OC template is also fine..

If you're 12hrs+ stable in P95 BLEND then YOU'RE ROCK SOLID!!!

Also your temp's/ voltages are looking good..

Thanks! One other question but i think i already know the answer... I just stopped prime 95 now and on one core i ran 628 tests while on the other i only ran 589. I think its just because windows is still using one core so one is slightly slower? Just making sure thats normal.

Well, with it being 4 separate cores, it is expected that one core handles the instructions in different order than the other. So that is normal. But, if you think one of them is lazy, fire it's ass!

Hi jetpak12, not exactly sure, but I heard people say RAMs with D9 IC chip are great.

From that list, I recall it stated some of the Kingston HyperX RAMs uses D9 IC chip... and that Kingston RAM is in the QVL for PRO Turbo... at least the 2GB and under kits are.

Hi ZonderZout, nice... just enable all the power saving feature if you want to saves some money.

It should be best to get RAMs to sync with CPU.

I noticed the Kingston RAMs I installed in the black DIMMs by themselves can run in dual channel too... not sure why the manual tell us to use yellow dimm for dual channel...

Try use 1:1 ratio (that's 1MHz CPU vs 2MHz DRAM) for stability despite I don't find much of a problem when set using a different ratio.

Just go into the BIOS page and select the minimum value available among the options and that's usually the stock value.

Hi dudy80, welcome to OCN and welcome aboard!!!

Good job in getting your oc stable.

You can always use programs like CPUID HWMonitor, Everest, AIDA64, and else to find out the voltage readings when set on AUTO.

While for Prime95, passing the minimum 12hr is good enough in most cases... but for better assurance, go for more if you have time.

The less voltage(s) required for oc stability the better.

I had a question recently asking if we should standardize the test time (such as to get prime stable for 3 days straight) since standard test time for failure for newly build computers is 3 days.
