update:

ok i got it to load windows with theses settings


MIT SCREEN

cpu clock ratio - 8
fine cpu clock - +0.0 (and also works at default 0.5)
cpu freq = 400 x 8 = 3.2ghz (or 3.4 @ 0.5 clock)
cpu host control - enabled
cpu host frequency - 400mhz
pci express frequency - 100mhz
CIA2 - disabled
Performance enhance = standard
system mem multiplier - 2.0
DRAM timing : auto
system voltage control: manual
ddr2 overvoltage (default = 1.8v) = +0.2
cpu voltage control = 1.40v (wouldnt load windows with less than this setting)
FSB overvoltage = +0.1v
GMCH overvoltage = +0.1v



ADVANCED BIOS FEATURES SCREEN

no execute memory protect = disabled
C1E = disabled
TM2 = diasbled
EIST = disabled


now the stock default settings run cpu temp of 40c but with the settings above im running 58c and when i tried running linX it instantly pegged over 70c+ and set off the temp alarm so i immediately shut it down

im running Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro cpu cooler in a well vented case with absolutely no case airflow or heat problems (it always stays room temp)

Great, you've got it to OC, but we're seeing that your Freezer Pro 7 isn't good enough to keep your CPU cool with it OC'ed. Either back tyour OC down so you stay below 70'c under load or buy a new CPU heatsink(this would be my recommendation for your 9550- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835233012 )

thanks for all the help guys :toast:

@ BarbaricSoul - yes it definately looks like i need much better cooling if im going to overclock it


@ choppy - i'm thinking somethings different with the revision 2 board because it doesnt want to act like yours and the only way i got it going was past the "safe" voltage limit so i think i better leave it stock and wait until i have a better board for overclocking, i havent heard any complaints about the 9550 so im pretty sure the stability trouble is from the board.

Good job getting it to work. You may have set your voltage to 1.4, but it's actually probably within the limits of your CPU. For example, my CPU voltage is set to 1.512, but when I check CPU-Z, it's at 1.488.

Also... if I were you, I'd make sure my heatsink is properly seated, and check my temps during LinX at stock speeds.

That does seem pretty hot, but read what the creator of the best temp monitoring program around says about CPU temperature: http://forums.techpowerup.com/showpost.php?p=1635189&postcount=476. My CPU touches 70-73C after about 10 minutes running Prime95 small FFTs, but I don't worry about it.

yep, i noticed its always lower than the actual setting you enter


my cpu is seated well and it runs 37c to 38c normal idle temps before the overclock


linX ran for literally just 2 seconds to show in the high 70's but alarms went off so to be honest i was busy turning it off quick and wasnt worried about checking just how high it got but im not comfortable running over 70c especially just for a modest overclock like what im trying to do.

to me its not worth shortening the lifespan of things just for such a small gain

okay , wel at least we kinda got somewhere lol , maybe youve just got a bad board that doesnt like to OC ? anyway good luck in your hunt for a new mobo / cpu cooler !
