Drolfrawd @ 4Ghz
 
OK so Rev's sold me an H50 Watercooler. (thanks man). I have began dabbling, here is a screen shot of prime 95 temp monitor and cpuz all running. Not sure of the voltages but have them all in the green, Do you guys think i should push for more with this system. or leave it as is.
any guidance would be appreciated.

You won't know till you run Prime 95 for a while, and or OCCT. My Q9550 won't stay stable except at 3.8 with this 8gb of ram in it. My cpu hits a max of 54C after an hour of Prime 95 at 3.8GHZ

try running prime for around 3-5 hours.

I've decided to back of to 3.4 for now and run prime overnight

system was unstable
fell out unreal twice while playing.
Last thing i want to do is blow it up .
probs settle for 3.4 or maybe 3.6

Yea mine would get into Windows most of the time at 4GHZ but wasn't stable enough for use. OCCT would crash it within a few minutes.

@3.4 prime ran without errors untill i stopped it. 8hours 46 minutes . That seems like a good stable system and not too stresfull on the hardware.

That's some nice overclocking you have there Bro. Seems like you got some good hardware, nice!

I'm doing the same with mine. My Pll is good and quick at 3.6, stock voltages and runs everything just fine - no need to stress it any more......................................yet. :p

It is - I like those specs you have - that's actually a couple steps up from what you were originally planning, isn't it?

I'm betting there won't be much you hit that rig with that it won't chew right through...I like that. :)
