    My 24/7 OC For my Q9550 is = Core: 3.84Ghz and FSB: 1800Mhz 1.34v (after vdroop)


    Whats a good voltage for those settings?

    Also, when OCing should I mess with the GTL ref's??
    And what is the voltage range I should keep in mind when OCing this chip?

    1.4 volts max. Changing the GTL values is a necessity imo

    GTLs are diffrent for each CPU and each mobo...

    Search for my posts in the other Qxxx threads I gave very clear instructions for GTL ref tweeking. Also aftervdroop voltages mean nothing since i doubt you are measuring with a meter.

    What is the voltage set to in bios? for a 24/7 clock on a quad that i wanted to last i wouldent take it over 1.35vcore.

    its set at 1.3500v and right now CPU-Z is stating the voltage is 1.344v

    any recomendation for the PLL settings and FSB Termination volts?
