Trouble overclocking q9550

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I got a used q9550 a few weeks ago and 2 days ago I started overclocking. I would raise fsb in increments of 10 and run p95 for at least 12 hours with no problems. I didn't have to raise any voltages or anything. when I got to 383 fsb the pc froze during bootup, so I raised vcore to 1.36 and vdram to 2.0. Under load core 0 shot up to 75 degrees, so after a few minutes I shut it down. This morning I turned on the pc and went immediately into BIOS and turned fsb down 10 or 20. Windows started, but after about 10 minutes the screen went black and I shut it off. Since then I can't even get it to post. I reset cmos, I checked to see if any RAM was loose. I don't see anything wrong. I hope I didn't fry my cpu or anything else. Not sure what to do. My specs:

ASUS p5q pro turbo with modded BIOS
q9550 cpu
8gb (4x2) crucial Ballistix ram
Antec 500w psu
NVIDIA GeForce 9800 gt video card
Razer Barracuda soundcard
Xigmatek HDT S1823 hsf

Thanks!

Here are 3.8 - 3.9GHz (450 to 460MHz FSB)for you to try out..

FSB freq = 450MHz
DRAM TIMINGS= 5-5-5-15 or by memory spec
STRAP=AUTO
DRAM freq= 900MHz
DRAM STATIC READ CONTROL = DISABLED
DRAM READ TRAINING = DISABLED
OC charger=Enabled
AI Transaction booster=MANUAL
Performance Level = 10
8.5 CPU multiplier

Vcore=1.xxV (what Chip needs to hit 3.9GHz,add a bit if you crash)
CPU GTL = 0.63x
PLL=1.54
FSB voltage=1.30V
DRAM voltage=x.xxV (by memory specs)
NBv=1.36V
SBv=1.2V
PCIE/SATA voltage=1.60V
CPU & PCIE Spread spectrum=Disable
CPU & NB skew=AUTO
Load Line Calibration=ENABLED

All options in CPU Configuration set @ DISABLE and CPU MULTI @ 8.5x..

Testing methodology:

1. First test these with 6x multiplier with P95 LARGE FFT for at least 6h (12h is ideal) and stock Vcore as your CPU would be running @ 450x6=2.7GHz..

2. If you pass reboot to BIOS upp your Vcore and set CPU MULTI to 8.5x..

3. If it doesn't boot keep adding Vcore until it does..

4. Then in Windows test 450MHz FSB x8,5 =3.85GHz with Intel Burn Test for 20runs w/ max RAM and if you crash then just upp Vcore and test it again..

5. If you pass P95 LARGE FFT 6hrs & IBT for 20 runs then you're ROCK SOLID..

KEEP YOUR CORE TEMPS UNDER 75C IN ANY STRESS TEST.

CHEERS..

Thank you very much, but I can't get my pc to post. But once I get it going again, I'll try those settings. Thanks again.

Clear the CMOS.

Someone on another forum suggested that I may have killed my psu, that I don't have enough power to be oc'ing a quad core. So I will try a backup power supply and see if it works after that. Thanks.

When you clear the CMOS make sure you do it properly.

I remove battery and also remove power cord from psu as its advised.

I usually wait 10-15mins but have even waited few hours once(turned out mobo was dead)
I would have said its possibly a thermal protection shutdow kinda thing if the cpu has got too hot,perhaps it needs to cool down a little?

Don't think that is the problem, 500W should be enough for that rig (Don't know that quality of the Antec Psu's, but if they are OK quality you should be around 400-450W)

I have A Q9650 @ 1.35, GTX 570 @ 1.05v, 4x2Gb ddr2, 7 hdd's, 10x120mm fans, and some other stuff (MCR655, Fan controller, Sound Card, 200mm fan)

And I'm doing fine with a 620w (Note that the 9800GT @ load is 70W vs 570 @ load 220-230w)

Try to clear the CMOS like above ^^
