    Default OCing a Q9550 on a GA-EP45-UD3P

    ok guys i finally got my UD3P. so far i love this board. i have all settings in auto and am running 3.83ghz right now. but the vcore has gone up on its own. 1.392v in auto. my ep45-ds3r never did that. the only setting i have messed with is the mch. i took that up to 1.16v thats it. any tips on getting the vcore down and a higher OC???

    I'd be worried about VTT and PLL on auto at such FSB, what are the target voltages in EasyTune -> Tiner -> Advanced -> Voltage tab?

    the UD3P is awesome its a shame i waited so long to get it..lol alot more things in MIT to help OCing better and easier. i am now running at 3.83ghz and only had to make 1 tweak i am gonna work on getting vcore down/or higher OC. i honestly want 4.26ghz(have me a HEMI) lol i would recommend this to anyone that has the ga-ep45-ds3r.

    Hey Rob can you post your bios settings? Mine, although it's a rev. 1.1 only needs about 1.26v @ 3.91 GHz.

    hey all sorry for takeing so long to get back, ive had my system aart for a custom paint job. looks sweeet.
    ok back to OCing. im trying to get it to 4.0 now and i have the vcore bumped to 1.3375v and have taken the mch to 1.20v mem is running at 942mhz i htink it is. so thats under clocked. i just tried IBT at low mem tested and it only passed 4 out of 5 test. so im thinking the vcore is fine maybe even a little high but can be adjusted later. im thinking i need ot work with the mem some. ill get a template posted shortly so you all can see waht ive done and any help is appreciated.

    heres a couple pics of the paint job on the big red hemi

    this is exactly what i have right now.i changed a couple things to these settings and it passed low amount of mem fine, but i went up to half mem used and it shut down and rebooted.
