Q9650 Stable at 4.1 so far.

I just can't get 4.2+ stable without setting the vcore and vtt higher than safe max in the bios, so I settled for 4.1. Any suggestions?





CPU is currently running at about 40% in the shots above due to the ATI gpu client folding.

Run it at lower freq, & try to tight the memory timings & tRD. This will give you a nice boost in the memory subsystem. You will need to enhance the cooling of your chipset.

Lowering the tRD gives a nice boost to the memory subsystem:

Check the memory latency of my rig running CAS3 @ 450MHz:

Btw, i installed a 2nd fan on the Ultra120, and a 2nd fan in the chipset, and i lowered the CPU temp to 45șC & the chipset temp to 40șC, at max load, after 1h of OCCT.

I was able to boot the system & run wPrime up to 485 MHZ FSB, with the same voltages, so, this gives me a nice healthy margin for 24h daily usage.

Have fun with your system OC

I would love to tighten up the RAM a bit, but I doubt I get much better on this cheapo OCZ (SLI Edition) 800Mhz junk.

Edit: I just picked up two sets of this.

Sweet you've got the same board. Can you post pics of your fan setup? I've got a gheto spot cool over mine right now, but it gets hot!

Nice thing is nearly every setting is at default values. One of the easiest overclocks I've ever done.
nice. sounds like my E8400, it's at pretty much stock on everything too lol.

Does this refer to tRCD? My cpu-z shows trcd and not tRD.

The tRCD is the 'row' to 'column' delay (DRAM is like a 2D array of rows & columns).

The tRD is the 'delay' that the chipset needs to move the data from the memory bus to the FSB. On the ASUS mobos, this is called 'performance level'.

Sorry for the big delay.

Wow i need my vCore @ 1.6v in the BIOS but real vore is 1.51v idle and 1.48v underload @ 4GHz. Might be my s**t board ASUS P5N-D i am debating on getting OCZ Blade PC3-16000(CL9) 6GB and a ASUS Striker II NSE think i will fair better? Looking to watercool my board too.

Although i will only be able to use 4GB the 1.65v gives me plenty of room for overclocking or lowering latency further and look cool as well as being very well priced.

Edit- This cpu and board are amazing, I love them both

Pic at a little over 8 hours. I never expected it to run this cool on air at over 4.3GHz. My Q6600(B3)@3.4 ran quite a bit warmer.

You guys w/ 9650s are killing me. I wish I could afford one of those.

Anyway, here's the best I can get on my Q9550, 3.9GHz. Any higher and I have to push the vcore through the roof (1.55+). Passed p95 for 7.5 hours small FFTs and 3 hours of blend. Paired w/ the Raid0 SSDs it makes for a lightning fast system, so I have no complaints.

That's weird because I was also limited to 3.9 with this cpu on my asus maximus -tried flashing to x48 rampage bios but that was no help. It was not a true x48 but still its weird
Nice oc though
