    Definitly not. I have no clue about x64 but x86 would be under 20 seconds at this clock.
    Have you loaded BIOS optimized defaults?
    For more than 2x1GB memory it is advised to up the MCH Voltage, you can read bout it here.
    Post a screen grab of cpu-z CPU and MemSet (both channels and SPD) if possible.

    Yeah that doesnt sound right. My 1.4Ghz Celeron M Craptop Does it in 1min 53 Seconds. I would hope my Q9550 does it a damm side quicker. I would just set everything in the BIOS up @ stock speeds but Manually. Set your Ram timmings manually 5-5-5-15 @ what ever volts its suppost to be and yeah Chike says the MCH voltage could be adjusted maybe.

    I can confirm My Q9550 @ 2.83Ghz does a 1M Superpi Calculation in 16.520 Seconds
