That's secondary to FSB.

So locked multi chips are perfectly fine for 775 overclocking, and generally (the high multi ones) will OC just as far as any unlocked chip would anyway.

not totally accurate... if my q9450 had had 9x instead of 8x it would have held the temps and I think if anyone with a non unlocked and an unlocked chip will tell ya the unlocked were MUCH MORE overclockable.
just over 480 fsb was my limit. change volts anywhere ya like you weren't going above a bit over 3800mhz. just sayin...

I can't say whether unlocked is better or not. But on my old locked BIOS Dell I got 4Ghz (3.72 stable) on a QX6800 with just volts and multiplier. The link is in my sig. I know of another Dell that's running 4.2Ghz stable on a QX9650 the same way with stock fan and cooler. I score 7000 in Firestrike which is 58%, the QX9650 scores 7500 with 2x HD7850s. It works for me. In my case i don't have a lot of options, but I can't complain either.

dude you seriously need to get that fsb up to about 480 and then work out the best multiplier. the high fsb will make a diff

and in firestrike isn't a good bench when talking cpu etc. maybe quote superpi , nova, pcmark, etc

I seem to be doing OK compared to others using the fsb method with this CPU. Also I have no stability issues since only the CPU is clocked. Most people seem to be getting 3.45Ghz with QX6800 on MSI MB. I was 1 whole multi beyond that, and 1 guy was really close at 3.72Ghz with a combined FSB/ mutiplier method so I threw on an extra multiplier and some voltage.

In Geekbench I'm at 6833 fwiw. That was at 3.72GHz which GB didn't catch since it was done in Windows and not BIOS.This is a locked BIOS OEM Dell so the FSB is out of reach.

Anyway I did it the other way out of necessity, and it worked pretty well. I'm just posting my results to add some facts to the discussion. I'm not sure higher fsb will add enough to make up for a whole multiplier deficit. The reason I use Firestrike is that it is more real world in that a higher fsb/ memory speed vs. CPU clock might not make that much difference in gaming. But yes my 266 fsb is prehistoric, and the DDR2 memory also. There's nothing more I can do with this 10 year old Dell. I'm not sure which is better. A faster stable clock, or a higher FSB. I suspect a lot of fsb overclocking was done because Intel wanted $1000 for a C2X, and a whole industry of fsb overclocking was created. I'm sure at the same speed the FSB overclock will be better. I'm not so sure it will be better if the multiplier overclock is faster.

I guess it's a little late to join biggrin.gif, but I had never owned a Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Quad CPU ever. i7s, i5s, Athlon 64s, Pentium 4s, and Pentium 3s, sure. But not Core 2s. Then, in January 2015 I got a Q9450, Q6600, E4400, and an E8600. Here's my Q9450.

LGA775 was sooo much fun. still tinker with my Q9450 and 790i ultra mobo smile.gif

Hey all, just getting an old EX38-DQ6 going , currently running a E8600 that was at 4gh for all its life.

It has great cooling, so pumping some extra volts in should be fun (though I still want it to survive)

What quad would be the best option to pick up these days ?

cheers!

Q9650 or some of the Xeons. X38 has hidden support for 400 FSB. Q9650 goes 4.2GHz pretty easily. Warning the X38 chipset will only boot DDR2-800 at the 400 FSB. If you want faster memory you may need to stick to the 333FSB.

If doing the xeon Mod, the x38 chipset only supports the 3xxx series xeons.wink.gif
