    right lads (and ladies :))

    stuck my q9550 at 3.4 for now 400 x 8.5 just to get it started
    now has any one here got the same chip thats pushed it a bit further its the 45nm eo stepping i think looking at cpuz. so some one could give me there settings voltages ect.. would be nice

    my current idle temp is about 31/32 and my load is about 41/42 (these are the averages accross all cores)

    my coooling is a water cooling loop consisting of:

    • Zalman ZM-WB5 Water Block
    • Hydor L30 II Pump
    • Apha Cool bulls eye reservoir
    • 2 x asetek waterchill 240 radiators With 4 x 120mm fans
    • Tubing size is a mix of 10mm/8mm and 8mm/6mm
    • Coolant is feaser one F1 UV green

    any help to get this further would be nice especially any one with the same CPU/MB combo

    thanks ian :toast:

    Can't say I have your specific board, but the E0 Q9550's should hit 4ghz with ease.

    I use 1.328 vcore (cpu-z), 1.26 VTT, 1.36 MCH and 63% reference values and I have 4ghz. 1.2875 VID too :(

    Just go to goggle and type in what you want to know and study up abit on your bios settings so you will know what you are doing>
    You need to learn what your bios and mother board settings are for so you can obtain a stable overclock!

    unfortunatly the x38/48 boards cant seem to push the 45 nm quads as well as the p45 boards
    so 4ghz isnt so easy but you should be able get at least 3.8.

    is a best place for information for this mobo I have found its a huge thread but you'll
    find plenty of settings for 95/9650's in the last 25 pages or so.
    check the first page for plenty of good info too.

    vtt=fsbt
    mch= north bridge
    vid= stock voltage of your chip
