whats the options in "FSB Strap to North Bridge"? i'm pretty sure setting that is important as well, just need to know the options to refresh my memory as i don't have a reference atm

and i'm not sure on this, but i believe cpu vcore over voltage is the vcore adjustment, change that from auto, i want to say around 1.25 to 1.30 (you can work on it later, to get the highest OC, on the lowest voltage setting.)

The options for FSB Strap to North Bridge are...

200 MHz
266 MHz
333 MHz
400 MHz

Just checked out CPU VCORE Over-Voltage and the Standard is set to "By CPU" but the min is 0.01000V, the max is 0.63000V and it increments by 0.01000V Should I still change it to something? I don't really know what to set it to if the standard is determined "By CPU." =/

this and that

these two links will cover more of the "basics" to overclocking, i'm assuming you are on one of the "asus" p5 series motherboards, without knowing the exact one, i can't really narrow down an exact guide..

they will explain in better detail the things i can't, OC'ing is more of a "art" than a learned ability, it can be difficult, as you will be tweaking and changing a lot of settings.

its been 2 years since i have overclocked a core2, and i owned mainly gigabyte boards, and some of these settings and options you are showing, are a bit "alien" to me, as all the bios's were different, and you just had to do your best to fill in the gaps.

enjoy.

Yeah, I stumbled upon those earlier and while they were helpful, so much of the terminology seems to be different between p5k and p5p that I'm confused on what is what. For example, they talk about CPU Voltage and DRAM Voltage while I have CPU VCORE over Voltage, VTT Over Voltage, Chipset Over Voltage, SB Voltage, Memory Over Voltage, CPU Clock Skew, NB Clock Skew and it just seems too dangerous to experiment with values.

Thanks anyways, Ill just google the inividual terminology and do some research.

I had a q9300 with one of the best overclocking 775 boards, a 750i ftw. I was able to hit 500+fsb without breaking a sweat on both a q9550 and e8500. The q9300 had no such luck though. as a whole the chip is one of the poorest overclockers out there. After hours of tweaking gtlref lanes and pushing the voltage up way too much. I was able to hit around 3.5 max, and sometimes I would run prime stable for 24 hours, and sometime it wouldnt even post. If I were you man, I would try to sell that chip and pick on a q9450+. those q9330s just dont seem to have it

The thing that puzzles me is that when I change the DRAM Freq or manually set the times on my RAM, I get the same problem where I cant post, so maybe its the mobo? Eh, I think I'm just going to settle with it at 3.1 ghz and save money for a proper upgrade to whatever comes after i7. Thanks for the help though.

I have never heard of Asus P5P32TD/USB3 motherboard..

What chipset does it have??

I think that your motherboard is not able to push higher FSB on Q9300..

With a P45 chipset motherboard that Q9300 would hit 450MHz FSB without any problems..

CHEERS..

Oops, I mistyped it in the original post. I meant P5P43TD/USB3

Yeah just like I thought..

Now I'm affraid that your motherboard is problem there..

That is P43 chipset motherboard and those can't push more than 420MHz FSB with a C2Q..

Their FSB OC limit ranges from 400 - 420MHz..

And you should consider your P5P43TD/USB3 a good one for making it to 413MHz with Q9300..

Sorry dude for higher FSB you need a better motherboard like P45 chipset and DDR3 support:

Gigabyte EP45T-USB3P (DDR3)

Asus P5Q3 Deluxe,

Asus P5QC (it has DDR2 and DDR3 support)

Also you should look for these X48 chipset mobos with a DDR3 support:

Asus P5E3 Premium

Asus P5E3 Deluxe

Asus P5E3 Pro

Those DDR3 mobos would be able to push that Q9300 to the maximum..

CHEERS..

you will be waiting awhile...saying i3, i5, i7 is akin to saying "ford mustang"...

the 1366 cpu's were the first i7's, then came the 1156 platform, which had i3's,i5's and i7's...now we have the 1155 platform, which again has the same as the 1156...

i'm not sure what seperates i3's and i5's and i5's to i7's, i use to think it was hyperthreading and cache sizes, till i realize there were dual cores in the i3 and i5 line that had hyperthreading, and pretty hefty level 3 caches...i7's definitely seem to be a quad-core+ only segment, where i5's seem to be a mix of dual cores, quad-cores, and dual cores with on-die graphics....i3's seem to be dual cores with on die graphics.

a 600mhz overclock is a GOOD OC, and even being a quadcore you still got a few more years of life left to it before its aging architecture and lower clock speed start effecting its performance over 1ghz OC is reachable but not really the normal, and anything over the 1ghz OC is really an exception
