    There's no need :eek:
    I'll be stunned if I am ever able to pass you in PPD for a long-term basis. And you have a ~650K buffer between us :toast:

    Gets cold this time of year... Maybe I should get this Q6600 I have sitting dropped into a board and clocked, get it crunching, that should help warm up over by the patio door.

    That should push me over 4.5k PPD maybe even up to 5k.

    Ya I would be doing even better if I could get my q9550 on track here but I need a better cooler for it to clock it and run it.

    WORD.
    i did it the same, and you have to, because these things get FREAKIN hot:D
    3.4ghz (400fsb) with about 1.2 are acceptable, i think;)

    I just got the urge to underclock my P4 as low as i can get it :laugh: but this board doesn't like to underclock much... But that reminds me i got it clocked alittle better now. even 4ghz now with 900mhz ram speed :) along with 1000mhz bus speed(250mhz real) it gave alittle better performance then 3.96ghz with ~600mhz ram and 880 mhz (220mhz) bus...
    Also i am putting my S1283 on my 5kBE while my main rig is down so it will be back at 3ghz soon..(maybe tomorrow)

    Unfortunately, the Zotac board doesn't allow undervolting, which is a shame because the Q9400 runs perfectly stable @ 1.16v vs the 1.24v stock. It's really a very disappointing board, it overheats unless the northbridge gets good cooling, it doesn't support undervolting, or overclocking.

    There are so many upgrades I want :(
    A new PSU so I don't have to have it held in by cable ties, a new GPU cooler so the 8800GT doesn't run at 80+C when folding, a new motherboard so I can OC, etc. All total, all of these things would probably only set me back ~$150 (only $15 more than I payed for the Zotac board to start with), and then I would be well on my way to another cruncher (buy an E3200 and re-use the Zotac with it). Sigh :( :ohwell:

    I was going to ask for some of the parts listed above from my parents, but instead my laptop broke so I had to buy a new one (for school, homework, and crunching). They're covering part of the cost, but it is still setting me back ~$350 so I doubt I will be purchasing any PC parts any time soon (probably February at the earliest, maybe even later :()

    your problem is: the Q9400 has 333 fsb.
    i bet your board only supports FSB 1333... so it will run stock. my board supports FSB 1600... i can overclock my q9550 (which also has 333 fsb) to EXACTLY 400 fsb stable, which results in FSB 1600. at 403 fsb he refuses to post. until then... only a laaaarge field of crashes.
    i just saw such an m-Atx 775 board,like yours... it only supported a FSB of 1333, so e5200=go fsb 333 and low multi: no go.
    can this be responsible for your inability to OC?:)

    Yep, this is the reason, it OCes my 1.8ghz Celeron 430 and did OC the P4 I sent to p_o_s_pc, but I don't have it any more so I can no longer OC it. Anything above FSB1333 (even 1334) refuses to post :banghead:
