    You need to keep gradually increasing your FSB.

    Ahh ok! Ya, I can help for sure. There isn't that much difference as far as overclocking from P35 to X48, just a few minor voltage adjustments you can make

    So have you used the board yet to see the BIOS? Just wondering, because if someone told you there is a big difference there is not. Only these additional settings over P35-DS4 >>>

    What kind of problems are you having ? Just set the multiplier to .05 and the 400 X8.5 = 3.4 Ghz. I fooled around with the other setting till I got my memory to 1:1 and it was not hard at all. I am using the Achi bIOS.

    NimrodAUS has had monumental probs with his. It seems that not all 9550's are easy to overclock.

    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/new-...3-q9550-32799/

    Its in an X48 mobo, while his E8500 went into the EP45 of the topic title.

    The overclocking guide is a sticky at the top of the forum you are posting in. http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/giga...g-guide-26112/
