I'm playing Aion at the newly-opened EU f2p servers right now, and I have surely seen an increase in FPS (no wonder, considering the game only utilizes 2 cores). Running all settings maxed at the resolution of 1152x864 (grrr, I hate my monitor), I get ~60FPS, with momentary dips into the low fifties while moving the camera around. Heavily crowded cities stay at ~35-40, with dips into the twenties when textures are being loaded(Aion sure has a lot of texture pop-in, considering it's a PC game). Substract ~15 FPS from that, and you'll get my experience with the ol' Q6600 @ 3.0GHz.
Looking at the Gflops output in Intelburntest, everything seems pretty linear. The Q6600 got ~40Gflops @3.0GHz, the E8400 (@stock 3.0) - ~20. Split the Q6600 score in half, and everything matches up. Now, @ 4.14, it's ~28.
The increased FSB (1333MT/s vs 1066MT/s) is nice as well, since I can run my RAM at higher speeds with a 1:1 ratio. The temperatures are good (~63C under intelburntest load, ~52C while gaming), the SSE4.1 instruction set should boost my performance in PCSX2...
In other words, I love this new bad boy thumb.gif

I guess I'll try taking it a tad higher. The voltage is making me a bit uncomfortable, but I doubt it will fry my chip if I don't go past 1.45v. My primary concern is potential degradation thinking.gif


Regarding your FSB experiments, do you mean the FSB termination voltage? Some review sites have posted horror stories about fried 45nm chips (the quads, IIRC) when the FSB termination voltage was raised beyond 1.4v. Be careful when playing around with it smile.gif

Hi Guys, I don't know if this forum is still going but i have a P5Q Pro setup and its still performing well for its age.

I currently have a solid stable setup @ 3.2Ghz.. DDR2 @ 801mhz 2.1v

But I wish to push it further :\ .... I find that I can max all my games with a little headroom but id like just that little bit more comfort zone, here is my rig spec:

Intel Q8400 2.6Ghz @ 3.2 Ghz

Asus P5Q Pro

8GB OCZ Titanium XTC series

MSI GTX 570 Twin Frozr 3 Running OC @ 850 Core, 1700 Shader, 2100 Memory clock

GT520 ( dedicated physx ) Not SLI obviously

Jeantech Storm 700Watt psu

Zalman CNPS11X Cpu cooler

Arctic cooling Ram cooler

NZXT Lcd fan controller

Lancool Dragonlord K62 Case.

My temps are good at the moment @ 3.2Ghz ... there usually around 38c-41c idle 56c - 60c under max load and the cpu fan can be run faster than it currently is.

I've seen people saying they have achieved 3.5 Ghz and even up to 4Ghz on the Q8400,.. surely with this great board, the cooling i have and the memory I have I should be able to get it running higher? ...

I've tried many settings ive found around the net, when I google P5q pro q8400 overclock. . but don't have much joy when it comes to executing it. . never seems to want to post higher than 3.2ghz. .

im hoping someone here might have better knowledge on how to do so than other pages i have read. smile.gif

i cant spend any money on a better rig for another year or so due to other commitments, but i want to continue to max out games that are due out soon ( mass effect 3 ) ... :\ ....

Thanks in advance for reading my post and trying to help people !

Some pictures of my BABY and the setup she's the heart of smile.gif

@ Rob Dylemma

Welcome mate..

I'm glad that you are still enjoying your rig..

P5Q Pro is capable of max 460MHz FSB with C2Quad CPU installed sue limited GTL option in BIOS..

So you can shoot @ 450 x 8 = 3.6GHz very easily with your setup (if your RAM is capable of 900MHz)..


Here are 3.6GHz (450 FSB) settings for you to try out..

FSB freq = 450MHz
CPU ratio = 8
DRAM TIMINGS=5-5-5-15 & rest on AUTO
STRAP=AUTO
DRAM freq= 900MHz << VERY IMPORTANT FOR STABILITY AS HIGHER SPEED COULD BE UNSTABLE

DRAM STATIC READ CONTROL = DISABLED
DRAM READ TRAINING = DISABLED
OC charger=Enabled
AI Clock Twister = MODERATE
AI Transaction booster=MANUAL
Performance level = 10

Vcore=1.xxV (what Chip needs to hit 3.6GHz,add a bit if you crash)
CPU GTL = 0.63x
PLL=1.54
FSB voltage=1.32V
DRAM voltage=2.00V (or by memory specs)
NBv=1.36V (due 8GB of RAM and high FSB,but it's perfectly safe thumb.gif)
SBv=1.1V
PCIE/SATA voltage=1.50V
CPU & PCIE Spread spectrum=Disable
CPU & NB skew=AUTO
Load Line Calibration=ENABLED

All options in CPU Configuration set @ DISABLE and CPU MULTI @ 8.x..

Testing methodology:

1. First test these with 6x CPU multi with P95 LARGE FFT for at least 6h (12h is ideal) and stock Vcore as your CPU would be running @ 450x6=2.7GHz..

2. If you pass Prime95 then reboot to BIOS up your Vcore and set CPU multiplier to 8x (for 3.6GHz)..

3. If it doesn't boot keep adding Vcore untill it does..

4. Then when it boots up go in Windows and test your 450MHz FSB x8 =3.6GHz with Intel Burn Test 10runs w/ max RAM and if you crash then just upp Vcore and test it again..

5. If you pass 6h of P95 LARGE FFT & 20 runs of Intel Burn Test then you're ROCK SOLID..

KEEP YOUR CORE TEMPS UNDER 75C IN ANY STRESS TEST..

P.S.: Your motherboard is not capable to run a Quad CPU over 450MHz FSB due poor CPU GTL voltage options in BIOS that are mandatory for stabilizing core that would error in Prime95 LARGE FFT test..

CHEERS..

@ KingT - Mate thanks for the reply, wasnt expecting such a fast reply.. smile.gif ... we have a case of no joy though, i tried all the settings you mentioned ( with exception to x8. multiplyer and Vcore ) as i cant change multi anyways so it only shows ' Auto ' ... as far as Vcore, you mean cpu voltage? ... i tried the settings : 1.38, 1.35 & 1.4 aswell as auto and still no luck... I don't even get a post screen. I must have a poo-ee chip right ? ... frown.gif ....

The only thing I didn't do that you mentioned was the core voltage. . did i try the right voltages ? ( above ) ... or should i push more or something ? ...

I have made a o.c profile of the settings above in my bios, I also didn't put the dram voltage as 2.0 I have it set at 2.1 as the ram says 2.1 smile.gif i have a set of platinum ddr2 xtc and a set of titanium ddr2 xtc series see.. the titanium series runs at 2.2 but I put it as 2.1 for the platinum series.





Either way, thanks for the help anyways thumb.gif

Set AI Overclock Tuner to MANUAL, then you would be able to set CPU ratio (aka multiplier) to 8..

You say that your CPU ratio shows as AUTO,then highlight it and press ENTER or +/- buttons to change it..

Also in CPU Configuration tab set CPU Ratio to 8, disable C1E and SpeedStep..


Try my settings with CPU ratio at 6x (FSB @ 450MHz and the rest of my settings)..
That is to see if your motherboard is capable of running FSB @ 450MHz..

If your system POST with my 450MHz FSB settings and CPU Ratio = 6 then refer to my Testing methodology and test it with Prime95 Large FFT for at least 6hrs to confirm that your system is stable @ 450MHz FSB x 6 !!

Yes Vcore is CPU voltage!!!


CHEERS..

cheers man, it didn't work though, I figured how to change the multiplier to 8 and tried the settings, no joy. so i tried with 6 and still didn't get a post screen frown.gif ....

im not sure if im using the right Vcore voltages though,.. i tried auto, 1.35,1.38 and 1.4 again.

Oh well.

UPDATE: i managed to get 3.37Ghz 420FSB vcore 1.31 but kept getting BSOD in windows on startup.

i got a 3.4Ghz post too, but stalled at ram check. .

Sucks.. lol must have done about 30 start ups checking different settings just then. .. back to 3.2Ghz for now.

Your RAM is holding you back..

Use my 450MHz FSB settings w/ 6x Multi and only change these:

Only change these settings:
DRAM freq = 900MHz << VERY IMPORTANT

DRAM TIMINGS = All on AUTO

AI Clock Twister = AUTO
AI Transaction booster=AUTO
Performance level (it will disappear)

The P5Q Pro can be a very tricky board to work with once you get above 400MHz FSB. For me, it topped out at 466MHz FSB, any higher and it wouldn't post or was unstable.

Are you running 4x2GB, or 2x4GB? If you are running all four sticks of RAM, set the RAM timings to MANUAL and change the following under 2nd Information:

Read to Read Delay (S) -> increase by one from AUTO (I think its 4).
Read to Read Delay (D) -> increase by one from AUTO (I think its 6).

Changing these settings gave me very good stability when I was running 4x2GB Corsair Dominators @ 450 MHz FSB. With these settings, I also had vNB and vFSB at only 1.2V.

And I would say you're OCZ RAMs will be able to take anything that the board can keep up with, as you'll find that FSB speed is going to be your limiting factor. With my old setup, P5Q Pro with a Core 2 Duo and 2x2GB of OCZ Fatal1ty RAM, I could get the RAM up to 1066, even though it was only rated for 800MHz (and the board still stopped out at 466MHz FSB unfortunately).

EDIT: I don't really think its the RAM. I used to think it was the RAM limiting my overclock when I was still on my Pro, but I found out later it was really the FSB. With a lower FSB, my OCZ RAM went up to 1066MHz, despite only being rated for 800MHz.

CPU-Z

EDIT2: But that's not to say that none of KingT's suggestions are valid, they are all good, and should be used! thumb.gif

And just for reference, 4.4GHz required ~1.42V for me on my last board.
How are you liking it compared to the Q6600?
I've started playing around with overclocking on my new P5Q3. I spent a couple hours today messing with the settings, trying to get a feel for it. I got into the desktop with 600MHz FSB (and 6.0 multi), but my graphics card wasn't detected properly and the desktop reverted to the generic video adapter. I guess it needed higher voltage.
So I dropped it down to 533 MHz. I tried running prime with 1.3V NB and 1.3V FSB, but it failed after about 30 minutes, so I think I need a little more juice on the FSB. thinking.gif
Any hints for good settings from you guys who run/ran DDR3 in their boards? I have a few more options available in BIOS that weren't there on the old Pro. Any idea where I can learn more about them? I'm thinking the Maximus II series probably has similar options?
EDIT: ocman, how are you liking the SATA 3 card you got? Have you noticed any improvement/difference with your SSD? Someone in the Samsung 830 club was asking about the lack of SATA3 on 775 boards and I thought I might mention the add-on card you got, if you recommend it.

Wow, you either don't have a great board or a good chip. I was getting 4.1GHz with a bit over 1.3v.. My Q9400 @ 3.4GHz doesn't even need 1.3v. Whoever got my E8500 for $80 was lucky, so is whoever gets my board. I don't mean to brag but i didn't realise how good my board was as overclocking/overvolting.
