    Got Q9550 E0 a few days ago, playing with it, hopefully to get few quick answers:

    Board: EP45-UD3L(R) rev. 1.0 F10 (latest bios) + 4870x2 GPU (stock)

    FSB target: 475 Mhz, Current settings: 460x8=3.68 GHz
    Vcore = 1.248v (CPUZ load ) , LLC disabled
    Vtt = 1.32v
    Both refs = 0.67 %
    PLL = 1.55v
    MCH = 1.36v

    I got 9 deg diffrence across chip's cores (MIN - MAX)
    Temps are limiting, even with Mugen II on the chip, I got 70 deg load and 46 IDLE on the hottest core !

    NB is HOOOTTTTT !!!!, 60 on small FFT and 74 on BLEND - can this one be the limiting factor ?

    Also what is the rule of thumb for FSB vs. NB voltage ? (Is it linear relation ?)

    FYI - MCHTemp is reporting NB temperature as the russian written on their forum, (I read russian) - "The P45 chip have inherent temp. diode built inside it..." -=> I saw on some threads here, misknowledge on this subject.

    It would be better if you make your own thread.
    My guess is your case is not ventilated sufficiently. Try with open case and a room fan over it.

    I'll spill my 2 cents as well but echoing Chike, a new thread would probably be best. If I were you, I would take out the motherboard and apply AS5 on the northbridge, remove the blue alumnium plates and add a fan if possible. That should largely drop your temps. That's what I have done and I used MCHTemp and it took a while in Prime to even get the temp to register (since it has to go above like 46C) and if I remember right, it didn't go above 50C. That's with 1.4+ volts.

    Pics if you're interested:
    A site I've made from scratch:

    Computer Specs:
    AMD Phenom II x6 1090T @ 3.655GHz (215x17) (stock volts)
    Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5 (NB @ 2.58GHz, HT @ 2.15GHz) (stock volts)
    G.Skill RipJaws F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL @ 1.72GHz 9-9-9-24-1T 1.65v
    EVGA GTX 275, 2x250GB SATA RAID0, Corsair AX850

    DO not use AS5 on the NB, use non conductive paste such as MX-2 or TX-2 please.

    If you do not have 8GB of memory you problem is likely way to much NB voltages
