That's so great man.

I had Q9550 E0 running at 3.9GHz 24/7 stable in IBT, Prime 95 Large and SMALL FFT for 12hrs each at 1.28V Vcore (Load) , ON AIR with CM 212 Hyper cooler. (see pic attached at the bottom)

This was on P5Q PRO (DDR2) and P5QC (DDR3).

I also had CPUID validation @ 4.5GHz on air (530MHz FSB) https://valid.x86.fr/show_oc.php?id=1741603



and I ran Super Pi @ 4.4GHz.



Man this were fun times.

CHEERS..

Yes, the old days are not forgotten! Looks like you have a solid chip there!

This is only my 5th LGA 775 chip so this stuff is all relatively new to me.

I'm going to see if I can push the CPU a little further and I'll come back with some torture test results.

The problem I'm facing right now is if I go above 500 on the FSB I have to do a manual reboot. That is, shut down the system, switch power off and then back on again.

I actually just resurrected my old 775 build myself except with a few different things. An EVGA nforce 790i Sli Ultra and a QX9650 its has a ton of life left in it (more so than people think) but mine tops out at 4GHz on my Hyper 212 Evo. But then again the non extreme chips do overclock a lot better if you get the E stepping ones. Either way you are going to have a lot of fun with that rig.

Yeah for being 10 years old this processor still kicks butt.

Never toyed with a QX9650 but I imagine it's a beast of a processor.
Still, I'm happy with the Q9650 for now. When paired with good memory at tight timings and an SSD it makes for quite the snappy system.

Running Windows 10 Pro and hope to have this system around for many years to come.

See how fast you can get the FSB and memory going. I do remember that LGA 775 chips loved fast FSB and memory.

Carter, can you explain that in *English*?

Stick with your E0 Q9650, it’ll hit frequencies a C1 QX9650 will only dream of. I only got the QX chip so I can run my RAM linked to the fsb and still be able to take the CPU to 4GHz. Though this thing loves my GTX 660 SLI.

Thanks. I am happy with 4.3Ghz stable. Temps are under control. Idle around 95*F and under load about 170*F. So well within specs. Hope to have this PC around for a long time to come.

170F (76C) is a tad on the high side for a Core 2 Quad, not by a huge amount but I generally heard its best to keep it below 75C (70C really if you care about longevity) though if that's just stress test temps then your real world temps probably won't hit that and I wouldn't worry too much about it. Those idle temps are nice though, my QX stays mostly in the upper 40C range except one core that is just odd and stays at like 27C, but load temps in CB R15 hottest core I saw hit 71C and the rest were upper 60C range.
