I wonder if that's what's going on with other computers that lock up at low FSB increases? My G41 Optiplex 380 X5470 only goes from 333 to 340fsb. I may have to try this. i wanted to OC the 65W Q9550s. But went with the Xeon swap when it crapped out @ 2,880Mhz.
I picked up a MB for the X5687. An Alienware Aurora R1 Micro ATX with unlocked BIOS.
