    Default Gp-45-ud3lr q8400

    Got my hands on a Q8400 these are my current specs for my E6320, I need some help to make a sheet for UD3LR motherboard to fit my new Quad Core 8400. I want fairly high clocks but still very safe settings so I can run it for a few years to come.

    Highest clock as possible bascially without running on the edge of Q8400's voltage.

    The sheet posted below is the current settings for my motherboard. For my 3.2 E6320 CPU.

    The CPU will be picked up at monday so I just wanna know so I can OC it instantly when I get it.

    Best Regards,
    Lulzinun

    Here is the best 24/7 setup I can manage normally
    775 quads and duals at hi fsb on ep-45 ud3
    At present Im running at 486 cpu ref 486x8 cpu speed because Im still experimenting with the overclock on my newish gx card.

    There is no guarantee that the above settings would work for you as they are ,for me at least highly memory depednent.

    Some are worried about what seems a very high mch voltage.
    For 486 cpu ref I only need 1.34v below that it goes down rapidly 460 cpu ref only needs 1.26 in bios.

    There is no real reason why you shouldnt be running 3.3 straight off without much adjustment from your present settings on approximately 400+ cpu ref.

    Before you switch cpu get the pc set up.
    load and save optimised defaults in your bios and boot up.maybe do it twie just to be sure.

    Then switch the cpu and you should post up at 2.66G cpu and 1066 memory.

    Before you start to overclock I would manually enter whatever figure is shown for mch ref and also for cpu ref with optimised defaults loaded and save them ,it will save you some grief at higher overclocks.

    A cpu ref of 400-450 should be comparatively easy, cpu speed of 3.2Ghz-3.6ghz after that you may have to play around with some more timings Vtt etc .

    I do have some saved profiles of speeds from 400 cpu ref to 450 and also 480,490 and 500.
    You will also have to make a decison on whether you want to use the 2.66d multiplier or the 2.0D .

    My settings for 400-450 cpu ref would probably work for you on a 2.0D multiplier . The ones above 450 might not since the memory type and board is slightly different.
    Your memory is 1066mhz rated 8500 and not the 6400 in your link yes?

    Let us know how it goes.

    Your 800/800 Clock Drive settings indicate that you are currently running Fail-Safe bios defaults instead of loading Optimized bios defaults with your EP45 motherboard. <-- This is apparently wrong for the EP45-UD3LR motherboard.

    It looks like your have many of the voltage settings set to AUTO in the Motherboard Voltage Control section. If this is true, some of the applied voltage settings will be seriously over-volted when overclocking.

    With your current setup, please post an EasyTune6 screen-shot using --> TUNER tab --> ADVANCE tab --> VOLTAGE tab (only the Voltage tab is needed).

    Fail-safe defaults for that board are 700/700. Those settings have either been changed manually or it's a small mistake when writing out the profile.

    Accidently copy pasted my old settings it's updated with the current atm.
    Read loads of reviews for the Q8400 they say it has too little l2 cache. Maybe aim at looking on another quad cpu?

    I only play games for mostly n do some video editing, should I stick with the Q8400 or just head to look for a Q9400 or another similar? Can't afford that expensive though unemployed atm.

    Or use my E6320?

    Q8400 is plenty: when clocked (on GA-45), there isnt much of a performance difference with the slightly reduced cache between a Q8400 and a Q9550.
    I dont know the prices now but if a q9550 is say within ..nm i checked 9550 or 9650 is like $150 more on newegg or near double the price.775 quads below that are 6mb cache i think so..unless there is something better for $20-30 more ,seems a waste of $.
    I would say forget that on the performance difference,I wouldnt pay $150 or even $100 for a barely noticable change,especially since 775's are older generation cpu's.
    The Q8200 was a bit limiting because of the 7 multiplier ,Q8400 seems just right.

    Follow the steps above and you should be fine .
    There isnt really any point in giving a template unless you know what speed you want and anything above 450 cpu ref 3.6ghz ,
    It would help to know your other components,cpu cooler,psu and cpu specs like ViD.which you will need the actual cpu for.


    Edit :ahh when you said u had your hands on a q8400 i thought it was a done deal..
    1. anything more expensive than the Q8400 would for u I think be a total waste of $

    As to what sort of difference you will notice between the E6320 and a Q8400.

    In Games not a lot unless the clock speed is higher,because most games still have limited threads,and your not going to be running vm etc while gaming.
    However any 775 quad is better than a same model number dual IF you can get it running at the same speed.
    Video editing should be more of an improvement with 2 extra cores and improved instruction sets.

    What your really asking on the post is should I upgrade my 6320 to a Q8400.

    you can check things like comparison charts eg

    http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/chart...41,62,73&tid=2

    or cpu comparisons on toms hardware.but remember most of those are cpu at standard clockspeed.

    Otherwise you will have to go thru individual cpu review tests ,they usually overclock the cpu for testing.

    See if you can find tests with your present cpu at 3.3Ghz and ones with a Q8400 at 3.6 ghz and compare.

    One thing that would be good to know is what graphics card do you have now?. perhaps u would get more improvement on gaming and video editing for your $ by upgrading that.

    I guess I want something around 3.6-4.0 without going over intels recommendation with voltage and all that crap.

    What i'll be using with the cpu.
    700W OC-Z Modular
    XFX 5850 1GB
    Zalman Fatal1ty FS-C77
    2x Crosair TWIN2X4096-8500C5
    GP45-UD3LR 1.0


    Lets wait untill monday when I pick it up, and then we can start doing it propertly, I just wanted a humm, what kinds of settings and such.

    K
    seems the cpu is nearly the oldest component then, good gx psu n all that nm on gx upgrade bit above :0

    Ill post up what I use for 440 or 450 and that should work and then u could find your own settings for higher speeds or reduce mine.I dont have them until i load up the saved bioses :) ill do that later on.

    It's a 45nm quad but the zalman may still not be up to high OC. Begin with lower frequencies and watch over the temps/

    I'd definitely replace that cooler too. It wasn't designed to cool quads. Even a Q8400 will over whelm it. It's basically a big hunk of copper with no heatpipes, not ideal at all and with it being 4+ years old in design, probably not much better than the stock cooler. Much better to get a decent tower cooler. They don't have to be expensive either. Look around in people's signatures and search a few review sites like Hard OCP etc for an idea of what to buy. For the money, something like the Titan Fenrir would be good. Review - Titan Fenrir TTC-NK85TZ CPU Cooler | bit-tech.net
