For sure...

as far as the voltage vs clocks discussion...


Each cpu is different, always wonder why people always think that cause their cpu does x.xx @ x.xxv means thats the rule...

ya you should be able to cool it a lot more than what it is now. at 1.36v temps barely get in the 60s with the true. once you fix that up you'll be golden

Batch #: L847C194


I like how they use the term "batch". It's like they're baking cookies! Delicious 3GHz cookies of pure win.


I've also heard that these ultra-low-VID chips run hot for any given voltage. You can clock them a lot higher overall but you need better cooling to do so. That's probably contributing, in addition to my poor H50 installation.

I need 1.32V for 3.6Ghz. Your chip is winning!

Good chip. It is a shame you only have a P5Q Pro. It is missing the extra GTL finetuning needed for Prime 95 Large FFT's stability past 460FSB ~ with Quads. So 3.9GHz ~ will be your absolute max Prime 95 stable on that motherboard...

I've gotten it to 4GHz before, but wasn't able to Prime test due to way high temperatures (V1 just wasn't built for that type of use). I think I could have gotten it stable, and I'll give it a shot this afternoon (with the AC up for a little extra help ). The P5Q Pro and Pro Turbo have a lot of the top 20 Q9550 records. The EP45-UD3* dominates of course, but the P5Q makes a strong showing.

Nope, E0 it is. With a VID of 1.3V

At stock, it can do 1.17V

They have a lot of top showings for sure... My P5Q Pro Turbo have the top showing for Q9400 in the 4GHz club. 560FSB (Look sig).

Hell, my P5Q Pro Turbo can reach a much higher validation FSB VS my P5Q-E can.

But for stable max FSB they are two different things. Since my P5Q Pro Turbo are missing the extra fine tuning of GTL's it will top out at around 460FSB for max Prime95 Large FFT's stable with Quads. While my P5Q-E will go up to about 485FSB ~ stable...
