Thread: OCing a Q9550 on a GA-EP45-DS3R

    Hey Rob. Could you list your current template settings? It's crazy how 2 similar systems can be so different. We have the same proc & mobo. On paper, I should have a slightly better o/c due to my ram. Reality states your o/c is higher & more stable at less voltage.

    sure ill post my current settings. im at work now for another 5 hours :( but when i get home ill do my template for you. first thing if you have read anyone of this thread did you in mit select load optimized defaults? let me tell ya what a difference that makes. tbh i think that is what has me able to be running @ 3.6ghz with such low vcore... its insane and i love it..lol ill go back and look at my last tmeplate that i posted for my 1066 mem and see if i can remember the changes i did... other than swaping out mem and backin off the vcor a little i didnt do much changeing to that last seting i posted.

    EDIT:

    ok looking back at my last post with the template in it. this is what i am running right now. 3.6ghz 425FSB with my ddr2 800 mushkin mem running at 850mhz.

    I appreciate the info. I won't be home until tomorrow and I will certainly start off with optimized defaults. Thanks again.

    thinking of these here

    hmm does 4.26ghz fit in the HIGH PERFORMANCE part of this? lmao

    I'm having great luck with G.Skill. I bought these to replace some Ballistix ram. Why are you only getting 2 gigs of ram. I think 4 gig is only $10 more.

    Oh. Well alright then.

    Edit: Your settings did not work. Had to jack up the MCH to 1.38 to get into Windows. Had to also decrease the fsb to 412. I was able to pass IBT, 5 passes, small FFT. I am at 1.265 vcore which is down from 1.3125 on my previous settings. I guess that's a small victory.

    i think it was conners that linked to a thread where someone had 4gb of mem and had to actually take their MCH down instead of going up with it....took it down to 1.0??
    and it was 2x2gb gskill mem 1066. so maybe that might be a option. look back on page 5 of this thread half way down. was a post from conners....\\oh looking in your sig. you have 4x2gb kit? thats 4, 2gb sticks??? if your useing 4 sticks i have heard from alot of people it is harder to OC with all 4 sticks. take 2 sticks out and see what it gets you???

    I normally have 4 sticks. Right now I am only using 2 sticks. I put the other 2 in my daughter's rig while I wait for her Ballistix rma.

    lmao ballistix's RMA... ive been down that road.if its the crappy single sided mem i wont have any more crucial mem it sucks...


    EDIT:
    just got some gskill 2x1gb 1066 mem(the light blue colored ones) from a friend. let me test them out and see if its the way im gonna go. once i put these in should set the load optimized default again seeing theres been a hardware change? or just adjust for the mem its self?
