hey i have the q8200, i use the zalman 9700 led to cool my cpu, fsb 430, multiplier 7 have it running on 3.01 ghz stable.. achieveble with stick fan too. i used zalman as it gave me a 7 degree improvement. plus it reduced overall temps by 2degrees, relatively cooler system. impt, if you cant get past boot leave voltages and mem multipliers as auto. hope that helped
Go through the guides. Then go into the BIOS and change the System Memory Multiplier (or whatever your BIOS calls it) from AUTO to 2.00, 2.00B, or 2.00D - whichever you need to set the Memory Frequency to twice the FSB.
Download CPU-Z to check your FSB:RAM ratio.
Warning - confusion factor between what the BIOS calls things and what CPUZ calls things. What the BIOS calls "memory frequency" is actually the memory clock. What CPUZ calls "memory frequency" is half the memory clock - DDR2 RAM, remember? It transfers two chunks of data each bus cycle. What you want in CPUZ is a 1:1 FSB:RAM ratio.
