Default Q9400 Overclocking

I finally got a semi-decent quadcore lol. Bought this Q9400 OEM batch Q827**** (sorry, I cant remember the rest) and went straight to 3.6ghz. Vid @ 1.175 which I think is alright. After adjusting a few settings, this might be my 24/7 oc settings.

cpu vcore = 1.28v load, 1.248v
cpu vtt = 1.26v
sb = 1.55v
nb = 1.41v
dram = 2.0v

Will try for 4ghz later on. Hope my P35 can handle it!

Pic too small. Can't really read it.

Nice OC though.

I just got mine put in last night. Fired it up at 3.0GHz without taking anything off of Auto settings. Looking forward to playing with it some more tonight
