I mean it's only a 0.5GHz overclock and that should be a breeze on a 45nm processor. | Report abuse conquerz April 18, 2008 11:19:49 PM Maroc said:Well I'm assuming it will be able to achieve that quite easily even with the stock cooler.

Been wanting to try this but wasn't sure if it would be safe since never overclocked before and don't want to add anything to my system yet cos I just got it! | Report abuse Evilonigiri April 20, 2008 1:30:56 AM The Q9300 should be able to hit 3.6GHz without much hassle. You'll be limited by the motherboard, so you will be running high fsb speeds. | Report abuse Related ressources voltages for 3.0GHz on Q9300 - Forum E6750 to 3.0ghz using cpu stock cooler ? - Forum Q9300 temp question - Forum Core2Quad Q9300 OCing - Forum Q9300 Temp - Forum Ask the community Publish conquerz April 20, 2008 3:48:28 AM Evilonigiri said:The Q9300 should be able to hit 3.6GHz without much hassle.

I don't think its a good idea to take it that high with stock cooler, mr master-debaster. | Report abuse Evilonigiri April 20, 2008 5:27:01 AM Just a suggestion. | Report abuse conquerz April 20, 2008 5:32:37 AM Evilonigiri said:Just a suggestion. I wasn't denying your suggestion either.
