    q9650 in Asus P5B with Xigmatek HDT-S1283 HSF
    4 x 2Gb GSkill DDR2 800, 5-5-5-15
    Quadro FX 1500 GPU
    Antec 500w Earthwatts
  1. I apologize... when I registered for this forum I inputted my system specs so I thought they'd be visible... Q9650 in Asus P5B with Xigmatek HDT-S1283 HSF 4 x 2Gb GSkill DDR2 800 rated: 5-5-5-15 1.8 - 1.9v Quadro FX 1500 GPU Antec 500w Earthwatts The reason I jumped from 360 to 380 it because this chip should be able to do 400 in it's sleep so I didn't feel the need to make such small steps at first. 4. I'm using Real Temp and CPUID to monitor my temps. 5. Yes, I set the RAM voltage to 1.85, on the RAM packaging it says 1.8-1.9v. 6. Yes, the PCIe frequency is set to 100. 7. Yes, I disabled Spread Spectrum. 9. No, in all the noob OC guides I read they never mentioned that... they all said to just enter the RAM specs?!? Thanks for your help!
  2. Hello, first time OC'er here... just got my q9650 today and thought I'd give it a go... 1. First boot with default bios: idle temps = 26-31 degrees C idle vcore = 1.3v load temps = 44-51 load vcore = 1.22v DRAM frequency = 333 timings = 5-6-6-15 2. First OC: FSB=360x9=3240 vcore=manual=1.2375v DRAM=720(1:1) voltage=manual=1.85 timings=5-5-5-15 typical disabling of extraneous mobo settings. idle temps = 25-31 idle vcore = 1.18 - 1.2 load temps = 41-47 load vcore = 1.12 Result: successful. 3. Second OC: FSB=400x9=3600 vcore=manual=1.25v DRAM=800(1:1) everything else left as is. Result: wouldn't boot into windows. When I went back into bios it wouldn't let me manually set the vcore anymore, 'auto' was my only option. I set the FSB back to 360, saved and exited and went back into bios, I could then manually set the vcore again. This booted into windows just fine as before. 4. Third OC: FSB=380x9 vcore=manual=1.2375 DRAM=760(1:1) everything else left as is. Result: wouldn't boot into windows, but got a lot closer than the last attempt. When I went back into bios it wouldn't let me manually set the vcore anymore, 'auto' was my only option. I set the FSB back to 360, saved and exited and went back into bios, I could then manually set the vcore again. This booted into windows just fine as before. Obviously there's some problem here as the q9650 shouldn't 'max' out at a 3.24 OC!! Any ideas?? During the third OC attempt while it was trying to boot into windows I got an error, something like, "can't load (or find?) the specified file: <windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe". I had a couple weird windows issues last time I OC'd (see the first post in this thread), ie: I had to reinstall Avast antivirus and my ftp program wouldn't connect to my web server anymore (both internet related?) Anyways, I don't think these are the reasons why the OC isn't working right? Should I do a windows repair? Thanks a bunch, your time is appreciated!
