    You're welcome, glad to hear that your system is stable at 4.0GHz.

    It sounds like you were not able to find an inexpensive, LGA775 compatible AIO cpu water cooling unit for your system.

    Your Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus cpu cooler with a push-pull fan setup is doing better than I expected with cooling your X5450 cpu.

    I'm really happy with my setup now, the overclock is working, been testing it for so long, no errors/crashes, now i wanna put the frequency on auto so the system will run at low freq speed when i search google or read forums, and when i need a better performance, the frequency goes up again for my needs.
    Can u tell me what should i enable or disable, and witch settings in the bios?

    Best regards,
    Baze


    EDIT: Also i wanna lower the noise from my coolers, i wanna put them on auto too, i want the system to control them as well.

    To avoid confusion, please update your hardware list in your PC Specs.

    Set:

    C1E Suppport: Enabled
    CPU TM Function: Enabled
    Execute Disable Bit: Enabled
    Intel (R) SpeedStep (TM) Tech: Enabled
    Intel (R) C-STATE Tech: Enabled

    Load Line Calibration: Disabled

    TM (Thermal Monitoring) and Execute Disable Bit should always be enabled, even when you are overclocking.

    You will need to set CPU core voltage higher, probably need to be in the 1.37 - 1.39 range.

    Check out the AnandTech article that explains vdrop, vdroop and the problem with LLC enabled.
    For system stability with high cpu loads, the minimum reported cpu voltage will probably be in the 1.29 - 1.30 volt range.

    Check out the Cpu Fan Speed and Cpu Q-Fan settings in your bios where the Cpu Fan Profile setting might take care of automatically adjusting fan speeds.

    You might get better fan speed control using SpeedFan's custom fan speed settings.
    Check out the SpeedFan tutorial for setting up fan profiles for PWM fans:


    My CPU Vcore is set to 1.38750 and with vdrop + vdroop, HWiNFO shows that the maximum cpu voltage is in the 1.344 volt range with low loads.
    My Q9550 system is similar to yours and these are my stable settings, YMMV:
