Q6600 you can live to fight another day!

If you try out Battlefield 3 Multiplayer, you would find your system very bottle-necked by that Q6600..

There are a lot of games that utilize CPU very much and then your Q6600 would be a issue..


CHEERS..

CHEERS..

Ok, BF3 multiplayer 1920x1200 (+ 1280x1024 2nd monitor)

all settings as high as they can. HBAO, AA etc

64 player maps for about 2 hours.

GPU maxxed out and CPU never flat lining at 100% but looking very well utilised.

Going to try skyrim next

The problem is still temps.
Strange is that I see people with 4GHz and air cooler here, and they are almost the same in specs.
Look my last test.

Keep it below 80 and you'll be fine.

Even in 24/7 use?
Today I tried the settings you said, and more a few, same thing :-(
Will any bios mod help me to get a more stable over with lower voltage?
I really want to see this in 4Ghz.
Thanks!

24/7 use will rarely if ever see temps like that. My Q9400, which is running at a much higher voltage only sees high temps when under extreme load, under normal heavy load it doesnt even cross 55C

Second, decrease your PLL volts to 1.56. I did the same thing thing on my board, and got the same results (one core would die first then the others would all fail within seconds after it).
Next, bump your GTL Ref 1/3 value to .670. Some boards have separate dedicated GTL controls for each core that all have the same baseline, some others have paired ones with the second pair running at a higher stock reference voltage. What you should not do is drop the GTL Ref value of the second pair down to what the first pair is set at.
DRAM volts are fine as you are running DDR3.
GREATLY increase FSB termination voltage to 1.38v. At these FSB speeds you are going to need it, but dont go over 1.45 for any extended period of time, and dont go over 1.5 at all as it will kill the chip.
Increase Northbridge volts to 1.48v (i have it here because i have 4 sticks of ram, but you may not need it as high) and make sure your case is well ventilated as the northbridge will get hot. As long as it remains well cooled you are fine.
set NB GTL to .630 (which is stock) just to get it off auto.
Increase SB and PCI-E sata voltage by 1 notch each.
LLC is on which is good
Spread spectrum is off which is also good
Set Northbridge and CPU clock skew to Normal.
Set CPU Margin Enhancement to Compatible.
And whatever you do dont do them all at once, you will cause more problems then you solve. GTL ref 1/3, then PLL, then FSB termination, then Northrbridge, then Vcore. These should get you very close to stable. After that set the other values as directed one at a time, then test after each one. Tweak values one at a time, one notch at a time, until you get it. Keep in mind this is going to take a LONG TIME. I fought with my computer for 8 hours to get it stable where it is right now. Expect to do the same with yours, so do this when you have time to burn.

I've made good progress, but I'm only up to 3.8GHz running 8.5 multiplier, 450 FSB freq, 1.38 Vcore. I seem to be pretty stable, but I haven't run any 24/7 tests yet. I need to get my temps under control. When I run Intel Burn Test I'm getting up into the 80's quickly. I've tried to max my fans by setting them to "turbo" in the BIOS, but it doesn't seem to make any difference. I sit here watching it and stress... then a core hits 90 and I shut it down. So, do I lower something in BIOS settings to help with this or do I just have to go liquid cooling? To be honest I'm not that thrilled with the idea of having liquid in my machine, so if there's a way to do it with air that would definitely be my preference. Thanks.

Who said you had to do liquid? Get a Hyper 212+, it is considerably better than the Zalman piece of crap you have now. If that doesnt do the job well enough to satisfy you, go for broke and get an NH-D14 or similar. I keep telling you, your current cooler IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH

Cyrious, do you think my problem is only the CPU cooler or could it be something else? Zalman 9900 MAX can't take the heat?
I mean, my temps are just too high for 3.8 or 3.9 with these voltages. I replaced the thermal paste about two years ago, could be it? It's a Nochtua NH-1 if I remember correctly.
I still haven't updated my bios succesfully with latest mbios from xtreamsystems ( http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?200109-Modded-ASUS-P5Q-Pro-Deluxe-Premium-BIOS ) because the raid problem isn't fixed yet. Could the system benefit of it somehow for a better stable oc?
I don't know what else to do here man.
Thanks and for anybody that can help me out here!

First of all, I had P5Q Pro, and I know every trick available on it..

Read this:

A P5Q Pro has only three settings available in BIOS for CPU GTL and that's limiting factor in the pursuit to stabilize a Quad Core CPU at FSB over 450MHz.

That's why it's pretty much impossible to have a fully stable Q9550 @ 4GHz on P5Q Pro motherboard.

Also for the proper stability testing refer to this:

2. If you pass P95 then reboot to BIOS up your Vcore and set CPU multiplier to 8.5x..

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 x8,5 =3.85GHz with Intel Burn Test for 20runs w/ max RAM set in test 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..
