    Hello. This is my first post at techpowerup.

    I am building a new rig consisted of

    Q9550
    P5Q pro
    8GB ram ( ddr2 800mhz )
    Sun beam core contact cooler

    I know the answer can be somewhat subjective but
    what is the general highest clock speed Q9550 can hit on stock voltage?

    I am looking forward oc' ing it to 3.2 and underclock the ram or
    oc it all the way up to 3.4 so i can have 1:1.

    I believe, and Im not an intel expert or anything, that those speeds you mentioned should be achievable on stock voltage. 3.4 shouldnt be a problem. However, someone more knowing of intel chips could probably answer more solidly than I :D

    The standard Q6600 is good to at least 3GHZ on stock voltage, so I would imagine that the Q9550 would do the same or better.

    You don't need 8GB RAM...

    The default clock on the CPU is 2.83GHz? 3.4GHz easy I should think.
