Overclocking QX9650


I have only 2 problems on my system

iam currently running a qx9650 @ 4Ghz on a 790i XFX mobo. @ 4Ghz my systems runs idle @32C Sweet tbh

my objective it to overclock my qx9650 to about 4.5/5ghz this will be unlinked to my memory as it intends to crash if i overclock those. (my system is watercooled)

i would like to try to get my memory overclocked though to @ least 1600 mhz (project X 2000mhz) those are the dimm's i use.

atm i got my qx9650 running fine @ 4Ghz @ 1.4 vcore and my memory runs @ 1333mhz both my motherboard and ramm capable of alot more so any hlp on getting these best outta these would be great. thanks

  1. yea good look lol you cant hit 5ghz with a qx9650 with watercooling, 4.5ghz is possible with reasonable voltage, look at the rankings on hwbot anything over 4.5ghc with ure processor is with dice or phasechange or ln2. try useing a 10multi and then 450mhz on ure fsb with 1.5vcore, erm i suppose u could up the ram speed also useing a divider.
  2. well it isn't any more difficult than getting it to 4ghz. You increase the fsb little by little, you test every step of the way, you increase vtt/vdimm/etc when it isn't stable anymore... Depending on the vid of your cpu, you might need more voltage than you'd think is safe. I've seen q9650 go up to 1.5-1.6 so don't worry too much for your qx.
  3. i see were ur coming from tbh 4.5 i would gladly accept, as for memory a divider?

    i could put a comp togeather in matter of hours, but iam still learning the bios side of things.
  4. well for 4.5ghz you can use a 10multi and a 450fsb then a 1:1 mem dividor, that would make ure mem run at 900mhz, if u use a 2:1 mem dividor then ure mem would run at 1800mhz which will better utilize ure fast mem.
  5. any ider were i could get a 2:1 divider would be great.
  6. or explain to me how to do it ect.
  7. read the stickies they will be able to help you more than i can, if only u lived in leeds lol id come and do it 4 u.
