The E0 Q9550 is a very good chip. I love mine.

Don't know much about the E7AUM-DS2H but with my Q9550 E0 on Gigabyte EP45-UD3R I got 3.83ghz stable just by upping FSB to 451x8.5 and MCH (NB) core voltage to 1.200v.
CPU Vcore in bios is VID value of 1.225 and I enabled LLC. All other voltages in bios are set to stock values.

Maybe 8 gigs of ram will hold you back a little though.
Also depends on the cooler but still you should be good for 3.4 or 3.6ghz all stock for a start.

The Gigabyte GA-E7AUM-DS2H motherboard is based on the NVIDIA 9400 chipset and is not exactly designed for OCing.

I'll watch this thread to see how much you can OC. It might make for a decent HTPC board.

Here is the only review I could find on the board, and it is very limited:

edit: Here is an entire thread dedicated to this board, and it seems it can OC (at least 45nm dual cores are reaching 420+ FSB).

I think there is some OCing potential there. It should reach 400 FSB since I checked the Gigabyte CPU support list and the QX9 series (400 FSB native) are supported. It would help if you could take pics of your bios settings and post them. I am curious to see the voltage controls you have available to you.

With a 400 FSB, you could run your Q9550 at 3.4GHz. I just have no experience with the board, so you need to give more info to to OCN before I or anyone else here can really help you.

what pics do you need?

is 3.4Ghz-3.6Ghz

i have a q6600 i havent returned yet

is this q9550 really better

and do i really need this large of a heat sink if i only can OC that much?

Go into bios (hit delete at bootup) and go to the section were you can change voltages (most gigabyte board bios refer to this section as M.I.T.). I know the EasyTune program allows you to change settings in bios from within windows, so maybe even a screen shot with that program running will give us your options. Also, go here and fill out your system specs:

It all depends on your temps. Quads do run hotter then dual cores.

Clock for clock the Q9550 will be faster and run cooler. So if you have it in a small case, the Q9550 will be a better choice. But the Q6600 has the potential to OC higher with the 9x multi. So only actual testing will tell. But a Q6600 at 3.4GHz will run hotter then a Q9550 at 3.4GHz for sure.

which is good i really want SLI

Hdmi

and a decent grapics on board

im getting pics

on a different note my new 1tb is a little loud and a hair slow is that normal?

WD cavier black

third one is as high as i can go

Show us the voltage tab. Also, can you crop the pic in paint or something so it is only the EasyTune tab?

Ok, there are no voltage settings for the CPU or the chipset. As you increase the FSB (which inturn increases the CPU speed and ram speed) you need to add voltage to the northbridge and the vcore for the CPU itself. You also have to lower the memory divider to compensate for the FSB increase.

Can you go into the bios and see if there are additional voltage settings? Again, when the computer is booting up, just keep hitting the Delete button until the bios loads.
