I think that you have just rung out all you can from that Chip is all . Each chip and each MB have there limits and sorry to say yours is at that limit . You could just get a Q9650 that would get to 4.0GHz no problem as mine has . but getting a i7 is far better :D .

I think one problem might be C1 revision Q9550, those just don't seem to overclock as much as E0 revision chips. If you look at Hwbot Q9550 CPU-Z rankings you won't find a lot of C1 chips with high clocks.

Do you think Asus rampage III formula and I7 930 will be good choice??? Or may be P6X58D Premium ???

Ok .This is a deal ,right now I'm at 3.8ghz with 1.40625v ,and with OCCT temp went up to 74 c for about a 1 sec or two, most of the time it stays below 69 .Is this normal for that OC? safe ? or I need to play more with it ,drop Vcore ,rise NB or GTL ref Or PLL ????

Very nice. At 3.8GHz there isn't much that CPU will stuggle with, those 12MB Core 2 Quads are beast processors.
