Q9450 overclocking

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I finally got me temperatures in order with the purchase of a new cooler from the kind people from this forum and now I am ready to give this overclocking a try.

My temps are load prime 95 after 30 mins:

Motherboard 25 °C (77 °F)
CPU 35 °C (95 °F)
CPU #1 / Core #1 54 °C (129 °F)
CPU #1 / Core #2 51 °C (124 °F)
CPU #1 / Core #3 53 °C (127 °F)
CPU #1 / Core #4 50 °C (122 °F)
GPU 35 °C (95 °F)
SAMSUNG HD753LJ 25 °C (77 °F)
WDC WD1200JD-00HBB0 32 °C (90 °F)
WDC WD20EARS-00MVWB0 27 °C (81 °F)




1)Now I can oc q9450 to 3ghz or less but I read if I just bump fsb and leave voltage on auto it will over compensate and over volt. I did test and set the overclock setting to manual and I don't see the available voltages or can't even tell my stock voltage, so is direct key input the only way do it and does it require approximation?



2)Everest home edition reports my CPU VID 1.2125 V , is this really my stock voltage?

CPU-Z reports my core voltage as 1.84 but it fluctuates to 1.60.


3)I would like to achieve this on a stock voltage if I can even figure it out, and is 3.0ghz stock a good goal to shoot for? This is my fists time overclocking after reading how common it is.

Thanks for your time

Those temperatures are good..

KEEP YOUR CORE TEMPERATURES UNDER 75C AT ALL TIME.

If you want to enter a value for voltage just select a voltage setting you vant and press +/- buttons on your keyboard.

Yeah probably Everest is telling you the real VID of your CPU..

CPU-Z only shows a real time value,what's your motherboard giving to the CPU..

ASUS P5E-Deluxe MOBO is a great motherboard and it shoud push that Q9450 to the 3.6GHz easily.

But you'd need to bump your Vcore,FSB Termination voltage,NB voltage..

And set your RAM to 1:1 with FSB for the best stability..

CHEERS..

Yeah that would be a start point..

Use +/- keys and also set Load Line Calibration to ENABLED for better Vcore regulation..

Also in CPU configuration meni set to DISABLE C1E,SpeedStep,TM function and set your CPU multiplier (ratio) to 8x..

CHEERS..

so i punch in my VID from Everest and that will be the best for overclocking with stock voltage?

ill read over that thread
How do I set fsb RAM ratio. I just want a basic overclock because this is my first time.

Yes that would do the trick..

If you want to run 400MHz FSB then set RAM at 800MHz = that means running FSB:RAM = 1:1..
