Need help tweaking OC QX9650

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hardware

Processor - Intel QX9650 (Air Cooled)
Memory - Corsair CM2X1024-8500C5D
Board - Gigabyte ep45-ud3p

I have been able to get it up to 4.0Ghz, running semi stable. In order to do so, I had to crank up the core voltage to 1.45. (I know this is outside of the intel max suggestion for this cpu.)

The problem that I run into is heat. While I plan on picking up a water cooling system next week, I would still like to get the temps down and would prefer to bring the proc to within suggested ranges.

Here are the settings that I am using currently.

CPU Clock Ratio ...........................:9
CPU Frequency .............................:4.0
CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) ............: 445
PCI Express Frequency (Mhz) .........: 100
(G)MCH Frequency Latch...............: 400
System Memory Multiplier ..............:[2.00D]
Memory Frequency (Mhz) ...............:890
Standard Timing Control .................5-5-5-15
CPU Vcore….……….........................: 1.45
CPU Termination…..... ......................:1.32
CPU PLL………………….....................:1.5
CPU Reference.…………........................:0.7 60V
MCH Core……………....1.4
MCH Reference….…….Auto
MCH/DRAM Ref.…...... auto
ICH I/O……………….....1.50V
ICH Core…………...……1.100V
DRAM Voltage …….... 1.8V


Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

have you tried lowering the memory speed to gain stability? usually a high memory speed or NB speed can make the system unstable.
