Hi guys!

I'm new here, from Brazil!

I know my setup is old AF but could you guys help me?

My setup:
Q9550 E0
CPU Fan Cooler Master V8
Asus P5QC
2x4GB DDR3 1333
ATI HD6770
Cooler Master 550w

I've tried to OC just changing the FSB to 400 and everything else to Auto but after like 2h of use (not even stress) keep giving me the damn BSOD

I've tried to change the CPU voltage to 1.23750 but nothing changed.

Do you guys think that i can give something more a try, cause' i really don't want to upgrade my system (the prices in Brazil ar craaaaaazy right now).

Thanks!

You think that my system can't handle the 400?

I've choosed this FSB because it's inside the Intel safety parameters.

Even under stress teste, he don't reach 50 degrees.

Thanks! =)

So it seems to solved the BSOD problem!

2516030


Looks like this now... The CPU voltage stays like this at idle and reach 1.248 under the CPU-Z stress test.

Is there any way i can achieve the holy grail 3.4 or it's better to stay at the 3.0?

(sorry about my sh** english)

Thank you very much!

You seem too fast at delivering feedback, and this is bad.
Stress the PC for four hours at Gaming, then report back.

My prediction is that it would hold by 99.9% , the next step up this would be tricky.
One step at the time.
Stress it.

Hey Kiriakos!

I've done the test, and sometimes, the screen in the game, turn red (nothing written), then after 15 seconds, the PC restarts.

But when the game works, the FPS was very unstable (3 seconds like 60fps and 1 second 20fps).

Sometimes this would happen too in the FSB 400.

I returned now to the stock config by now.

Thanks! =)

Made it a habit, to use by quote reply, or else I do not get automatic notification of a new reply (no one does).

The test result it is a proof and 100% accurate one, that your power supply this is bellow the required wattage so to handle even one Q9650 at 3GHz stock.
The 5V and 3.3V rails of the specific PSU they are very low in potentials.

If you ever think again to play with higher clocks, you need to invest at a modern version of this Corsair, at 750 or 850W.
With 25A or higher at its rail of 5V & 3.3V

In my case I am going to replace the Hiper with the slightly fresher in age Corsair ( if TPU reviews this is no worthless text?) Then the Corsair will contributed to a better voltage rails stability, at 5V and 3.3V that matter the most for overclocking and Gaming.

Keep it stock for now, its fast enough all ready.
Good luck.

Goi it! So it's a Hardware limitation.

So probably i'll keep my stock clock by now.

Thanks for all the help man! You don't know how you helped me!

Best regards! :)

One last word, I am assuming that you did load BIOS Defaults and then you did follow my advice.
If you missed this step, then do it now.
And run again few tests.

Also I need to know what is your PSU age, look and find the buying receipt.

Hey man!

Yes! I've reseted the definitions before making the changes you tell me.

Same thing every time.

My CPU is very old (like 12 years)... probably is one of the problems.

I'll be happy if she still runs, even on stock clock. XD

Tks!

at this point you might as well replace thermal paste on the north/south bridges and swap out the thermal pads too being so old you might get the stability youre looking for. You can buy thermal pads of any thickness for a dollar shipped off ebay

Start savings, for a fresh power supply (branded 750W).
Everything else this is good as new.
You are welcome !
