I have bumped it up a notch to 1.54V, hopefully it won't crash and burn. I saw one forum where a guy got it to 4.2 with some water cooling. I had already seen the same Xbit experiment, Essenbe linked me to it a few days ago and I've been looking all over for info. Problem with this #$%^&*(! mobo id I have no HT adjustment, it defaults to 10x of the FSB frquency.
Yeah, the voltages always vary slightly from what you set in the BIOS... I'm certain the voltage and frequency settings work on the pirates' code (from The Curse of the Black Pearl): They're more like guidelines than actual rules...

Pity about the HT link though, but I suppose unless you're trying to set new OC records it's a pretty minor issue. Pretty sure you still have more OC options there than my Athlon 6000+ and XFX board though... Lol.

Ok so heres my overclock, I feel I have been more successful with the GPU than the CPU

Post Your Overclock!-cpuzss.png

Graphics default 550mhz engine, 1375mhz Shader, 400mhz GDDR
Graphics Overclock 700mhz Engine, 1573mhz Shader, 524Mhz GDDR

CPU Default 2500mhz
CPU Overclock 3213mhz

DDR2 1066mhz > 1071Mhz keeping 5,5,5,15 timings.

All on air, had to bump the CPU to 1.45v which isn't massive but still throws the temp about as high as I dare.

Yeah good work Sub Styler

When I had my Q8300 I could not for the life of me get it past 3.1ghz, tried 3 mobo's, endless settings but I just gave up in the end.

Well I dialed the FSB up to 428, Loosened the FSB strap to northbridge enough to keep my ram as close to stock as possible (1071 instead of 1066) then convinced it to keep the 7.5 multiplier (which it insisted on dropping to 6 all the time) Luckily the Asus P5QD Turbo is loaded with more overclocking options than you could ver need, with a few minor adjustments to memory handling and disabling spread spectrum. Keeping the ram at it's rated 2.2v and pushing to 1.45v for the chip, I turned up the NB voltage slightly too but kept it well in the safe parameters and everything was good.

Previously I struggled to keep stable above 3Ghz, just those extra bios options that pulled it out of the hat for me.

yay go Britton, Thats a nice result! I'd try and go higher but on air cooling it's getting risky.
