First time OC'ing intel Q9550 nForce 780i - Page 3

post #21 of 44
Thread Starter 
So first thing I'd do is set my FSB to 355, Set the ram timings to linked and synced, note what voltage it's using by default and then MANUALLY set all the voltages to their current rate so it doesn't choose what voltage to use after you boot which may cause instabilities. Should i set volts to around 1.35 or so ?

yes if you only aiming for 3.6 but you must remember to large prime test and have a temp monitor installed so you know your ranges

occt is a good stress linpak preferrably.
intel burn test for your mem

setting your cpu and ram linked/synced will limit the highest possible oc but until you get comfortable it will give your the most stability

I have Prime95, and core temp as well as cpuz. I also want the most stability so that's good too know

From my (extensive) personal experience with an eVGA 680i A1..

Set the FSB to 400, set the voltage to 1.6v. If you can't get to Windows, don't up the voltage - try to decrease or increase the FSB by 1-3 Mhz until you get to a stable one.

It should take a few hours.

he gonna fry that 9550 at 1.6 i have never needed more than 1.4875 to get into windows and that was at 4.20

you can get the 9550 very stable without the link/synced but you have to know what your doing with ram timings and voltages.

im not willing to go above 1.4v and in my first post im looking for 3.5-3.6GHZ stable from there we can go up little by little.

its way easy to get the 9550 to 4ghz without much tweaking but after that things get tricky. there is a world of difference from 3.5 and 4.0 trust me from a benching stand point you stand to gain about 500 points in 3d11 and the 450gts with proper voltages can compete with most cards nowa days. my 460's in sli and the 460 phsyx crush two 480s and is highly competeing with the 580s

Don't be silly.

I kept my Q6600 @ 1.6v 24/7.

Nice, this is my first time so I want to take this slow and precise.

Just don't expect to hit 4.0Ghz on a 780i.

You'd have to be lucky. 4.0Ghz is for P45 boards.
