    Talking Just got my Q9650 installed!! Please help me with my O/C!

    Hello All,
    I just installed my q9650 last night and I needed you help with the "optimization of my O/C.

    I am sitting pretty at 4GHz and just finished with an 8 hour prime95 run without any issues.
    I am happy with 4 GHz for now and will probably keep it here without a real need to go higher.

    I did have a couple of questions:
    1. I have a temperature split on the 4 cores when I am at idle. they are
    37-37-32-34
    Is this anything I need to be concerned about?

    2. My Load temps are:
    61-59-59-60

    I think these look good, what do you think?

    My template is below: Please help me optimize!! :D :D

    Nice Jsunn. You guys with good E0 Yorkies are really making me jealous.

    Don't worry much about idle temps. The sensors on the 45nm chips are typically highly inaccurate at idle. Your load temps are fine.

    Your settings are excellent. Nice low VTT and vNB for 500FSB. Your MCH ref must be right on the money.

    You could try the 2.4B memory setting if your modules will run at 1200, you may be able to go with a notch lower tRD.

    Wondering though, why you have the CPU and PCIe Drive volts so high? I personally have not seen any noticeable befit in increasing these settings above the default 800/900mV.
