Motherboard DFI P75 T2Rs Dark Elite
8 Gig DDR2 RAMs
Vram GALAX GTX950oc 2 Gig
PSU Corsair vs650
What cooler do you have? If somewhat decent cooler 4GHz should be pretty easy on a Q9650 assuming is an E0 stepping. FSB of 445 and the stock multiplier of 9 should net you right at 4GHz, set fsb voltage to 1.25v or 1.3v lowest you can is better, and core voltage of 1.35-1.4v should be more than enough but you can go up to 1.45v if thermal headroom allows and your CPU needs it. Mine needs 1.55v (in BIOS before vdroop) but ends up being 1.47v ish.

Of course an FSB that high is all dependent on your RAM, you might wanna try a different divider if your board supports FSB:RAM dividers, DDR2 may make things a bit more difficult but not impossible.

Lol my first build was for a rich friend, we literally went to Newegg and sorted each component category "Highest Price" and purchased. It was a Asus Striker II Extreme, Q9650, a big ass air cooler and a 1500 watt PSU. 4GB of DDR3 was about $800 at the time. It ran at about 3.6GHz until I built him a 2500k rig years later

Funny to see the parts for his $5000 build on eBay now for pennies

Yeah its still a fun platform to screw around with because the parts are so cheap, kill a cpu? That's fine, there's probably another one you can get for $20. Only pricey thing are the boards for some reason, my 790i cost $174 and that ain't even new, which I believe is similar to the ASUS version being an SLI board.

I still use my Q9650 for every day use. I got it to 3.6ghz but for the life of me I cannot get anything higher stable on my EP45-DS3L

I had 4.05GHz on my QX9650 but I think mine degraded because its no longer stable, but I was also running 1.5v so that may be why.
