    Howdy! I had to sign up i have been looking everywhere! I also have a Q9550 and a DS-5 board. The only difference is i run the Xigmatech cooler and have 2x2gig of Team Xtreem PC2 8500 DDR2 1066MHz CL5 ram.

    The Q9550 has STEEPING A and is Revision EO, i have seen with stepping 6...... not sure if they are the same.

    LSD the above settings didn't work for me so my ram timings are on auto. Not sure what values would suit this ram if i were trying to loosen them , trying to get a hold of Team them selves but not go :(

    On CPU-Z Core Voltage 1.328
    Core Speed 3655.1Mhz
    Multiplier x 8.5
    Bus speed 430Mhz
    Rated FSB 1720.1Mhz

    in the Memory tab
    Dram @ 516 Mhz
    FSB:DRAM @ 5:6
    CAS @5.0
    tRCD @7
    tRP @7
    tRAS @24
    CR @2T

    i have been told that i should get more out of it... not that im complaining with this o/c but 3.8 to 4Mhz would be quite lovely.

    any comments would be appreciated

    P.S didn't want to start another thread seeing the we had virtually the same setup. :)

    New thread would have been fine, and helped someone later with your setup find your info easier.

    But please give me your full settings you are using and I will see if I can help you get that stable before you try to go further. And give me a link to your ram please. >>>

    This is Just a template I use to ask people their settings, pay no attention to the numbers in it, replace with yours

    Link to ram Team Group Inc

    The ram which is set to Auto CPU-Z reads as
    Ram 516 Mhz
    FSB Dram 5:6
    CAS 5
    RAS to CAS 7
    RAS 7
    Cycle time 24
    CR 2T

    Ahh it'll be alright here I suppose now. Is that stable you have? I am not sure what you wanted but I will give you some ram ranges for now. If you do want a higher overclock you are going to have to under clock your ram or try to run it at 11xx Which you may need to do so you can use the 400 MCH latch

    Try this >>>>

    Hey LSD will try the settings that you have sugested :) What i want to achieve is a maximum stable overclock.
    Have been told that the Team xtreeme that i have is very very good, time will tell :)

    once again will try these tomorrow

    cheers

    P.S the overclock which was on Auto is stable!!!! Prime etc :) still yet to try your settings :)

    Well good luck! Yes, I hear the same about those Ram's but I have not tried any yet myself

    ok, settings are in and all is good! Running Prime and temps are about 45-50c

    So from here what now? Push FSB slowly?

    Are the the ram timings really loose? Too loose?

    cheers

    Hey LSD tried increasing the FSB to 435 but no go. Wont load into windows.

    Yeah push the FSB, you can try to leave the ram timings but you may need to loosen them up a little bit as the ram speed goes up

    No windows?


    More voltage, or higher static Tread

    Hey LSD, tried a lot of things to get this to work, static tread did nothing i went higher it wouldn't boot, 11 or 12 would boot but no windows.

    Unless there is another tweak i think we have hit ceiling my friend. :)
