That's the problem for me, I can tell that my 6970 is being bottlenecked, and I want to go Crossfire, maybe Tri-Fire, since I like to run Eyefinity on three screens. The C2D just can't keep up for me anymore. Do you think a C2Q will overcome a GPU bottleneck?

I ran crossfire previously with two 4850s, and some games felt like they had micro-stutter. I'm not sure if it was a limitation of crossfire at the time, or the chipset. thinking.gif

Thanks for the suggestion though! thumb.gif

jetpak, good luck in swap meet! I got my Q9650 with low VID by luck for $175... price was a little more than half of original when new. But I guess it's well worth it?cheers.gif

Yeah, I want access to USB3, SATA6, DDR3, and more PCI-e lanes, so that's why Ivy is my planned upgrade ATM, since it has native USB3 support that Sandy Bridge doesn't, as well as lower TDP. There's also PCIe 3.0, but I'm not too concerned about that since I plan on sticking with 6970s for a while.

Well, maybe I should just wait for Haswell... whistle.gif

But I really just have upgrade fever, and I've been frustrated with being limited by my RAM to OC. frown.gif

Where did you find your Q9650? I'll wait and see what happens at the swap meet, and keep my eyes peeled for some deals. smile.gif

Yes I have but still nothing..

Now I just saw that your motherboard has A2 revision NorthBridge!!
My has A3 revision NB so maybe that's why my motherboard is capable of running RAM @1600MHz and your is not..

A3 was the latest revision of the P45 NB,it had slightly better FSB OC capability and it needed less voltage..


CHEERS..

A Q9550/Q9650 will have NO problem with any of the current single GPU solutions. But it will bottleneck 2 GPUs like 2 x 6790 will be bottlenecked by a C2Q, but 1 wont! If you wanna go crossfire/SLI with the latest graphics card you should get an i7/i5 system than smile.gif

@KingT

Yes maybe that's the problem.
But you should be able to run your current OC with 1.30v NB or even less, since I am.
You can try lowering it smile.gif

The guy's got 7.4 in WEI and I got 7.3 with the Q9650 both at stock... WTH Windows??? He does have a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P + NVidia Quadro FX3700 Video card... not sure... but I'll try to reinstall Windows a little later to see if it helps.

As for the Q9650, I got it locally in Canada through local ad... The guy who sold me that chip said it was originally from a Dell Workstation... Nice?

The guy's got 7.4 in WEI and I got 7.3 with the Q9650 both at stock... WTH Windows??? He does have a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P + NVidia Quadro FX3700 Video card... not sure... but I'll try to reinstall Windows a little later to see if it helps. 

Hmm, maybe just try running it multiple times; I remember one of my scores increasing at one point for no apparent reason. rolleyes.gif I forget what section it was in though.

And based on what you said, I decided to hop onto Craigslist (idk if Canada has it, but its just online classifieds) and I spotted someone who has listed an ASUS P5QE motherboard + C2Q 9550 for $150US, should I jump on it? He says he wants it gone to today. I did email him saying I was interested and asked if it was an E0 stepping.

Seems like a good deal, no? Here's a link to the mobo, it supports DDR3! cool.gif How do you guys think it compares to the P5QC a couple of you have?
post #5066 of 6481
Well the ASUS P5Q3 DELUXE is definitely better than the P5QC. It's an awesome, awesome motherboard and is one of the top 775 boards out there you can find actually. You can squeeze every MHz out of that Q9550 without worrying that your board can hold you back tongue.gif
Getting it in pair with Q9550 and 8GB DDR3 will definitely be hardcore and you can run crossfire on it np thumb.gif
If you ask me, that's the thing I'd do. smile.gif and than sell the current CPU/mobo/RAM and actually make the upgrade really cheap tongue.gif

Combo for $150... Hell yea if you got disposal income! The link you have is for the Deluxe model of P5Q3 though... We got Craig's List too but I think Kijiji's better in terms of formatting or interface! Hands down! thumb.gif

Getting it in pair with Q9550 and 8GB DDR3 will definitely be hardcore and you can run crossfire on it np thumb.gif
If you ask me, that's the thing I'd do. smile.gif and than sell the current CPU/mobo/RAM and actually make the upgrade really cheap tongue.gif

Great to hear, and, yeah, that's the plan. smile.gif

P.S.: This is my 1600th post!!! cheers.gif

It is actually the Deluxe model, its the same link the seller had in his ad. However, I think I might have missed out because he hasn't responded to my email, and his ad made it sound like he wanted it gone today. We'll see...

And yeah, formatting and interface is horrendous on Craig's List. I try to not to visit that website if I don't have to, haha.

And gratz on many many posts! cheers.gif

Well let's hope he didn't sell it! Combo ASUS P5Q3 Deluxe + Q9550 for 150$ is ******* nice deal so to say! You should really get it before someone else does.

@ocman

It's good to hear you like my rig mate, yours is awesome as well! thumb.gif

I want to know if someone here has the latest bios release from Ket's mod running on a P5Q with an quad and 8gb of ram.
I have an 9550 E0, Asus P5Q and 4X2 GB of Corsair Dominator, two Maxtor in Raid 0 and I would like to know if it would have some issue.
Thank you!
