  1. P5Q-E and Q9550 overclock Hey peeps heres my system, Asus P5Q-E Mobo, Corsair TX750w PSU, 4x2GB OCZ Reaper 8500 1066mhz, Q9550, Xigmatek Red Scorpion S1283 CPU Cooler (OCZ Freeze Extreme Thermal Compound) Gainward Radeon HD 4850 512MB GDDR3 (x2 crossfire) 2 SATA 300 drives Im trying to overclock my new CPU and am looking for starting points as Im not sure at all what to do. I have everything on auto except RATIO- 8.5 FSB - 333 DRAM FREQ - DDR2 1066mhz RAM TIMINGS AS SPEC - 5,5,5,15 DRAM VOLTAGE - 2.10 - Disabled Have turned off speed step, C1E, Virtualisation technology and Spread spectrum Where should I go from here, has anybody got a similar/same setup that could post there settings?? Im hoping to get to 4ghz or close. What do you guys think?? Thanks
  2. Ok, so which timings should I loosen out of the 4?? ie 4,4,4,15 now - 5,5,5,15??? To be honest I havnt a clue the effect this has! And should I run a blend test with Prime95? Large FFT test always seems to pass without errors where as I just ran Blend test and got an error after 6 mins!!?? Thanks
  3. Point noted. Iv read the same in other places bout the q8200, just wish I read it before I spent the money and decided to o/c! I wont be able to fork out for a new chip for a while so with this setup what ya reckon I can do?? I can afford more ram/different ram, would 8500 be better for overclocking/would it really matter with the limits of my chip??? So more FSB till errors appear in Prime95 yes?? Any ratio settings or ram timings I should tinker with for the moment though?? Thanks again
  4. Hi everyone hope you are all good! This is my first post here so here we go... Recently built my new rig, Corsair TX750 PSU Asus P5Q-E Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 2,33GHz @ 3GHz OCZ DDR2 PC6400 2048MB KIT, Reaper HPC, 2x1024MB, Heat Pipe, (CL4-4-4-15), E.P.P 2x Gainward Radeon HD 4850 512MB GDDR3, (Crossfire w/1 bridge) Xigmatek Red Scorpion S1283 Heatsink (TIM OCZ Freeze Extreme) Had a go at overclocking but haven't really grasped how everything interacts just yet and need help to get this baby up as fast as she will go. Have attached a snap of desktop (IDLE) with various programs up and there readings. I know there must be a whole load more info I should be supplying so just say the word and Ill find it whatever it is!! At the moment I cant get prime95 to get past 30mins without 1 of the cores failing and the testing stopping. Whats next should I up VCORE or some Ram settings?? I have disabled/changed the Cpu settings and some BIOS settings according to greysky's guide Here Any help would be greatly appreciated, looking forward to learning from people who no what they are doing!! Thanks
