    Awesome bro I swear that series was one of the best ever especially for overclocking at low temps/voltage. In my opinion these chips are whats still keeping the 775 socket in the game, I love my 9550. Your going to have so much fun with that thing:rockout:

    the problem here is that it is summer ambient temperature is 26oC! I bet that in winter time temps would fall so much that i can hit 4.2ghz with a bit more voltage on the vcore! I am so greatful i own this cpu! what a beast man! smokes the hell on anything i throw at it!

    Yeah that 12 meg lvl2 cache is awesome. A sick chip especially for gaming, I'll use mine for a loooong time.

    My Q9550 needs 1.27V for just 3.4GHz... Needless to say I'm jealous.

    I was very pleased with my Xeon X3370, which was the same exact processor as the Q9650.

    I'd still be using it now in my main rig if it wasn't for the board starting to give out, and having a perfectly good P55 board that I was trying to sell, and MicroCenter's awesome $200 deal on 875K i7s...

    Get rid of that Maximus and get yourself a nice UD3P...plenty more in that CPU of yours and I suspect at lower volts too. :)

    I will say it (UD3P) is probably the best board there is for S775 quads (any S775?)..aside from the GB Extreme or whatever that's called; a lot more money either way.
