Overclocked my Q9450, seeing if it is okay...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
(Mother Board)
- Evga 780i SLi

(Memory)
- OCZ DDR2 PC2-8500 / 1066 MHz / Reaper HPC Edition / Dual Channel 4 GB
- Stable on Prime95 24+ hours @ 5-5-5-15 800mhz

(Processor)
- Intel Quad Core Q9450 2.66 GHZ (overclocked to 3.4 Ghz)
- Stable on prime95 24+ hours @ (1700 Mhz FSB) 3.4 GHZ @ 1.35V HT is on
- Peak temps 65c during Prime95 over 16 hours.

(Processor Cooling)
- Tuniq 120 - Big massive thing really.

(Graphics Card)
- Gigabyte GTX560 Ti SOC

(Operating System)
- Windows 7 x86 home edition (Genuine)

System voltages:

Core: 1.35 V
FSB: 1.3 V
Ram: 2.0 V
SPP: 1.4 V
MCP: 1.525 V
SPP <-> MCP: 1.25 V

My question is, first off, are my ram timings appropriate? Those timings are what they were stock. I have not overclocked the ram at all - I am wondering if I should a little bit. But I would like some advice on the ram timings.

Secondly, my voltages. Do they look right? I researched a lot online about safe voltages for my overclock. Just want to make sure nothing looks out of place there.

Thirdly, My FSB to DRAM ratio. Should that be 1:1 or something else? Please advise

The overclock seems to be stable, I just dont want to fry anything. I have run multiple instances of prime95 with no failures.

Thanks for any help.

Voltages seem fine to me.

Ram timings could be better, although I do not have the same ram, I have GSkill 1066 that runs to just after 850 at 4-4-3-9 14. Only way to know how much you can tighten them is lower them one at a time and test with memest.

FSB to DRAM ratio would probably be the best at 1:1

I didn't know a Q9450 has hyper threading lol
