Well what works for one may not work for another . Try taking things slower , set one thing at a time if you can get 3.6 -3.8 you are on track but this depends on lots of things as well . That mobo will OC that chip just fine , The RAM maybe the next thing in question .

No difference, just a different set, doesn't matter one bit, some move back to allow more room for heatsinks and such, some just like one vs the other.

Try taking the RAM to 2.0v and the CPU to 1.4v your NB should be fine . OCCT is extreme so watch them temps . and you may want to look into better cooling as well .

Only if your temps are too high if not then it should be fine . My cooling is way custom . :D
Oh wow that is your case ? Man that is nice too . I should give you temps that are nice and cool as long as you have some good fans on the rad I see no problem . Have you been able to get stable ? I sure hope so .

Yes you can take it a little higher but it might just be the RAM holding you back .

Try taking the RAM to 2.2Volts . 1.43 on NB is as high as I would go . Keep tinkering though . The Q9550 may have just hit the wall at 3.6Ghz . But keep trying . There are many more people here that know how to OC better than I do . I wished they would get on here and help as well .
