    Default Anyone done overclocking a quad core Q9400 with Asus p5p43td pro??

    I am using my Q9400 (stock 2.66GHz) with asus P5P43TD pro mobo & want to OC it properly (without damaging anything). I have currently overclocked it to 2.88GHz but have not tried anything above. I am almost a noob in these, so am seeking experience. Anyone know about how to OC with this specific mobo???

    Read OC guides as much as possible and try to grasp the whole basis. If the processor architecture is not relatively much distinct from its previous or next generation, you can also apply the similar fundamentals to another processor. For instance/essence, the process of OCing to all LGA775 socket based processors are fairly alike regardless of whether its a C2D or C2Q. After having some keen knowledge on OC the BIOS from different manufacturer won't bother you much. Unlike BIOS, the potentiality vastly depends on the board chipset. Yes, obviously, BIOS very from manufacturers to manufacturers but than, you may just find the identical options are entitled with different names than your tutorial.

    please dont make statements like these!

    A quad that to a Q9400 has a limited multi, & Intel's stated maximum voltage is around 1.35V iirc. I dont know if you are familiar with overclocking or not, but a FSB of 478 is very high for a quad & he would need a pretty high end board for that to happen, a P43 will never cut it!

    @areek May I know why you are interested in overclocking ? Is it just too show off or for performance, now that you've a good cooler ? If it's the latter, I'll surely help.
    Overclocking a quad is more or less a tough job with C2Qs on limited boards like P43s or similar, a P45/X38/X48 would've made things easier.

    Read some guides as @Mahfuz bhaiya suggested, there's no fast way to overclocking, just setting the FSB & voltage like that wont get you to higher clocks, each processor has it's own threshold. For e.g I had an E8400, the default clock was FSB(333) x Multi(9) = 3.00GHz. There are also FSB : DRAM dividers, & when you start increasing the FSB, your RAMs also start to clock further (like a Transcend 800MHz would go up in increments according to the ratio)

    My OCed E8400 ran at FSB(400, an increase from 333) x Multi(9, since these are locked processors, only Extreme series, or K series have unlocked multi e.g 2500K) = 3.6GHz (this was done at stock volts which was iirc 1.25-1.27V on my Abit IX38QuadGT, an X38 based board)

    Then there are processors revisions, an E8400 for e.g has two revisions, a C0 & a E0, the latter clocks beautifully to 4GHz & higher with relative ease). Then you've to check things for your system to be completely stable, if it's not, it's usually because of the lack of volts or a low end motherboard which is poor to handle the higher FSB) & lastly there are temperatures, ideally a quad shouldnt go above 75C under full load, try to keep it below that level & it'll be fine!

    If you really want to overclock, I'd suggest that you read some guides, take you time to understand all there is to overclocking & your BIOS. Go up in 5MHz increments & not jump to a very high FSB as suggested by @Peyal_K , once you hit a wall(where windows wont boot) you would need to increase voltage, there can be different thresholds for your processor/RAM/NB, only you can tune it to your needs, no guides can achieve you a 4GHz clock, it takes time & patience, it'll only give you a walkthrough!

    Hope it helped!

    Thanks Dipanzan. I obviously dont wanna show off cos there is nothing to show off really with people using i5 & i7 processors. Doing it solely for improved performance in upcoming games & softs, as I dont plan to upgrade my setup anytime soon.. I did a bit of OCing myself by reading a few guides before, brought it to 2.88GHz(360x8) after 5-6 times from 2.66(333x8). & due to my lack of knowledge, did not try anything more then that. & I dont want to put extra volts to my processor. But from what I have heard, with a Q9400 & a P43 mobo, you can go to 3.2GHz(400x8), I wanna achieve something closer to that, but with so many options in the bios that I am yet to understand, I am asking for help.
    BTW, I got a really good guide to overclock quad core cpus. I will give it a read whenever I get time. Was looking for a more explainatory guide here indicating what option means what & what will be the consequences of changing that.
