Q9550 overclocking problems

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hello! I'm new to overclocking and for this site too

My computer:
Intel Core 2 Q9550
Asus GTX 560 Ti CU II <-- just bought
MSI P45 Neo3 MS-7514 Ver 1.0 (need for BIOS update? And if yes wich one is correct one?)
4x Trancsend 2GB 800MHz DDR2
Windows 7 64bit Ultimate

At first I googled what and how everyone else had overclocked their Q9550 and found that 400MHz x 8,5 (~3,4GHz) would be pretty nice. Well cause I'm noob I tried to first raise FSB by 10MHz at time with letting everything else be auto (Memory at 1:1 so 400MHz would be 800MHz).

350MHz working just fine, but allready at 360MHz my system crashes after getting into Windows.

After few tries and wonderin about voltages I got back to google for more information and found few pictures where people had set voltages and DRAM clocks. So I went from the place there was no fence and tried to copy as well as possible, but with that my system didnt boot anymore.

After few more tries with different voltages and settings I got my system to boot and crash on Windows.

Now I have no clue what to do to get it working at 400MHz x8,5 (3,4GHz) so I ended up here asking for pros to help me

Pictures of my BIOS when it crashes on windows:




Only reason why it starts on these is that Multi-step OC Booster so it rises rest of clock on Windows. DRAM clocks goes over my mind and just copyed those settings

So allmighty OC Gods help this newbie!

See if you can find a setting called tRD or Performance Level under Advanced memory settings. If you find it, put it at 10.

Try to set those tRD2RD also to 10 and see what happens...

Crashed on Windows welcome screen.

Lowered my CPU Voltage to 1.3050 cause found some info that my last was high enough lower CPU:s lifetime. Still sould be more than enough.

Edit: Btw my CPU cooler is same what came with processor, but I dont think that should be any problem?

Try removing 2 RAM sticks, then try 400FSB again. And put that tRAS from 12 to 15. Also keep all tRD's at 10.

Going for 1.3v + on stock cooler is no point.

I was maxing out at 73c @ 1.31v with a Noctua NH-U12P SE2 in a case with very good airflow.

Start at 1.25v and see what temps you have there (Load with P95) then work your way from there.

Finally it booted up after removing 2x memory chips.
Why I can't get it running with 4 memory chips on 400FSB?

For Eggy88
Running Prime95 now and temp running at 70-75C case closed (Nexus Clodius <3).

Anyway I will start lowering volts to get cooler.

8GB (4x2GB) is many times difficult to use. It put alot more strain on the Northbridge. So you could always try again with 8GB and just try to increase NB volts (Think it is MCH voltage in your board). Do not go over 1.4 Volts for 24/7 use.

ehh,,, what he said ^

Find your North Bridge voltage control.

Set it to 1.3-1.4 and see if that allows you to use all your memory sticks.
