Can this ^ M.B O.C this q9550 cpu. I'm asking because it has a 4pin power connector, and I'm worried since my current M.B has a 4pin connector (g41m-es2l -micro) and it doesn't O.C at all.

  1. Huh?! That MOBO {GA-EP43T-USB3} and {GA-G41M-ES2L} both have a standard 24 pin ATX power and 4-Pin.

    So yes, you can OC easy. If you're having problems OC then I would take a good look at you OC and I would post at - http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum-29-179.html

    {GA-G41M-ES2L} http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128388&Tpk=GA-G41M-ES2L
  2. Ok, but I've heard that 4pin cpu connector doesn't O.C quad cores well. Maybe it doesn't provide enough power? Why doesn't my current M.B O.C then?
  3. Incorrect BIOS {F9 latest} or incorrect or memory used or stock cooler - it is not an ideal MOBO for OC, but it can be done. I've read FSB issues.

    In addition, try Tom's H/W OC Forum as I posted above - couldn't hurt to try!

    Good Luck!
