Oh my god.. bios must have f'ed up or something, i checked again and the voltage going thru that core was 1.65V (WOW) set it back down to 1.16
I finally managed to get my pc up and running *yay*
But now a new issue *boo*
I was preparing to overclock this Q9550 so I looked @ temps, etc.
Temps were nice and cool @ idle: 28C all around
I did notice my core speed was 2.66ghz (which is weird because I didnt edit the clocks) It should be 8.5*333= 2.83Ghz When i boot into bios to see what was up; the multiplier only went up to 8, not 8.5 (huh?)
and at this point i went to check out the temps within bios and they showed 90C!!!!!! (idle) ***?
Edit: Okay, found out unlinking the ram would pop the multiplier up to 8.5
wow.. good thing you caught that.. everything's normal now right?
Yep! temps back to ~28C, fewf good thing i only had it on for a total of about 2 minutes. I can't be sure if that was my mistake or bios glitching out. I'm going to take the blame for this one though. *Embarrassing*
