i maybe want to buy a ASROCK G31M-GS R2.0 mainboard, because my dg45id has some problems.
my system at the moment:
intel dg45id mainboard (fsb1333mhz)
intel q9550 4x 2,83ghz (333mhz fsb)
4gb ddr2 ram 800mhz (Gskill)
4x120mm fans (NZXT rogue super cube)
scythe big shuriken rev.2 cpu fan
i searched for mikro atx p45 boards /p35 /x... , no way to get rid of those onboard graphics.
then i found that asrock g31 which supports 1600mhz fsb. so my question is, is it possible to overclock my q9550? at least 400mhz fsb (4x3,4ghz) should be possible or?
Yep should be no problem i ran a 9550 @ 3.2 for quite some time. Befor i built my i7 920, befor i built my i7 3930k...Its acctually still running after about 4 years as a server in a small biz and yes its still oc d..
