Hey guys just got a Q9550 and would just like advise on what kind of Overclock I can achieve with my setup. I use a Gemini ll S cooler not the stock intel fan. If you are familiar with what my mobo can do that would be nice as well.
every system is different... Just bump it up a little bit at a time (5MHz or so with the FSB)and if it gets unstable (use prime 95) then back off a bit... watch your temps, use extra voltage sparingly. good luck!
(I think 3.4GHz with a 1600FSB is a reasonable minimum expectation with that CPU)
Hey guys, been a while, how u been?
I dont mean to hijack this thread, but i recently got a e5300 intel processor, 2,6ghz, 2mb cache, 800 mhz fsb.. now my question is, which processor is better? The e5300 vs amd 64 x2 4200+ ? I have mothervoards for both, but i dont know which will be best performing in my htpc which i play games like teamfortress2 and CS source on.. it will be accompanied by 2 gigs xms2 800mhz ram, and a msi oc8600gt..
E5300 is 2 gens newer, so i figured itd be better, but one guy on a forum i read said u wouldnt see any difference when nogt OCed on the e5300? The amd processor is socket am2..
Which one do u guys reckon will be better performing at stock speeds? And once again sorry for hijacking this thread.. also bear with me as i wrote this on my sony ericsson x10 hehe
I know dude, my bad, but my android was takin too long to open up a new thread, so i hijacked his a little bit hehe..
like i said, my apologies, was just wondering which was the best processor..
yes i u shouldnt have too hard of a time Ocing that processor, i got a q9650 at stock, but i havent felt the need to OC yet.. just small mhz increments at a time to check pc stability, and then ure good to go!
