Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 MSI G41M-P23(P25) Kingston 8GB(4GBx2) 1066mhz DDR3 Thermaltake TR-500 TR2 ATX Power Supply - 500W More about : msi g41m p23 q9550 overclocking Best solution barto a b K Overclocking April 13, 2013 10:38:16 AM I've had my q9550 to 3.4 before. I currently have it running at 3.2. You must have an aftermarket cooler. If you don't, there's no point to overclock a core2quad. They run a lot warmer than i-core CPUs. One thing is every system is different. Some can go much higher in clock rates. Other can't because of stability.
