MSI P7N DIAMOND + Q9550


Recommended Posts

sorry my english write?

 

I need help to reach 3.60 Ghz?

 

My Configuration is:

 

MB MSI P7N Diamond NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI

CPU INTEL BX80569Q9550 Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83 GHz 1333 MHz Socket 775 2 x 6MB

MEM CORSAIR DOMINATOR with DHX Technology TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF 4GB PC2-8500 (DDR2-1066) DDR2

HD 2 X SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD753LJ 750GB SATA 7200 RPM 32MB em RAID0

Video Card BFG Geforce GTX 285 1GB GDDR3

cooler CPU V8 Cooler Master

Case HAF 922 Cooler Master

Power coolMax 950W

 

Can not pass the FSB 1520 (380) X 8.5 = 3.23 Ghz, I wonder what should I change to get the 3.60 Ghz?

 

my bios Configuration:

 

D.O.T. Control..........Disabled - dinamic Overcloking

Intel EIST.................Enabled

SLI-READY memory...Expert

System Clock Mode....Manual

CPU Ratio Setting ......[8.5]

FSB Frequency ..........[1.520] 380 X 8.5 = 3.23 Ghz ( I change to get the 3.60 Ghz? )

PCIE Frequency .........[100]

DRAM Frequency ........[1066]

 

Advance DRAM Configuration: Manual

1st

CAS# Latency (CL) : 5

TRCD : 5

TRP : 5

TRAS : 15

TRRD : Auto

TRC : 30

TWR : Auto

TWTR : Auto

TREF : Auto

1T/2T NENORY TIMING : 2T

 

CPU Voltage ..........................[0.01250]

well first off i'm not a 780i guy so i could be way off here, but i see several things that don't look ok to me at all....

 

the best thing you can do for yourself is read this before you start to overclock otherwise you're just flying by the seat of your pants

http://forums.overclockersclub.com/index.php?showtopic=71656

first of all turn off/disable eist

secondly i don't have a q9550 but if it's at all like my qx9770 then the vcore should be approximately 1.3625 to start with

nb bridge voltage at or near 1.45-1.50

sb voltage at 1.50

your ram would be much happier at 1:1 ratio instead of 1066mhz so set it back down in your bios to 800mhz

8.5x400fsb=3400mghz=3.4ghz so if you still can't get a boot to windows then increase the vcore by 1 increment and try again

and if i remember right the q9550 has 1333 fsb so it probably isn't gonna overclock real high without alot of heat/vcore so make sure you have a good cooling setup before you push it

download "real temp" for free (google) and install it so you can monitor temps as you go... you'll also need a little program called cpu-z...

overclocking takes time and patience so don't rush because if you're the impatient type you'll end up with dead equipment. it also pays to get familiar with your equipment before you try to stress it to much

and now i hope that some other overclocker in the community who is more familiar with your 780i sli mobo will come in and tighten up the rest

good luck with that ...!!

and welcome to OCC

thanks for the help. I can get a 3.20 Ghz. I have to learn more about this MB

that is a really good idea...!!...keep trying but read the overclocking guide thoroughly and there are probably some good youtube vids on ocing your chipset
