graememk Posted December 10, 2008 Posted December 10, 2008 Hi!, I've started to overclock my Q9550, so far i've got the fsb to 396MHz, so the cpu is running at 3365Mhz, but once i go to 400, the computer fails to post, and then will come up after a few tries saying there was a failed overclock, change settings etc, I currently have everything else set to auto, voltages and ram timings, coreTemp shows the cpu under load at 47,47,48,46. that has been running constantly since saturday. with the folding at home gpu client, and 2 instances of ubuntu folding, in vmware. Currently CPU-Z shows the memory timings as 5-7-7-20 i think and running at 528Mhz, and the core voltage of the CPU at 1.240V when i was trying to go for 400 FSB i tried changing the ratio so the adjusted memory frequency was less than 1066 (533x2) but it still wouldnt boot. I can try that again just to make sure Any suggestions? How high of an overclock would be possible on my setup, Rig is in sig below?
