So, is the Asus P5Q Pro good for playing games?
I've plan to o/c on it int he future with my e8400 at 3ghz stock.
1)is it good for gaming?
2)is it stable at 3.5ghz or 4ghz e8400?
3)is the temperature cool or hot
I need help on these question.
I use this board. Ive gotten my Q6600 to 3.6ghz @ a tiny bit over 1.4v, dont remmeber the exact number, wasnt over 1.46v though. My proc has a VID of 1.3, and ive been running it @ 3.2ghz (8x400) @ 1.28v for about 2 weeks with no issues if that tells you anything about the stability and power phases of the board. Im only seeing a vdrop/droop in windows of 0.02 at the most in CPUZ.
As far as memory goes, I use 4GB's of OCZ Reapers @1066mhz. Ive had them running at ~1200mhz for a few days before (was an accident, didnt realize it was running at that ) and I ran into no problems, this was during my stressing at 3.6ghz so I was running prime and what not and games, so it was very stable at ~1200mhz @ 2.1v.
