    Hey folks I run a Q9550 on a ASUS P5Q-E with 8Gb Ram. I have it clocked to 3.4 GHz using an 8.5 multiplyer and FSB of 400. This is with pretty much all other Bios settings on auto. When I clock it to 3.8 it runs very hot and fails temp tests with O.C.C.T. Periodically at tis speed the computer will shut down due to what I think is a memory dump? So I run the system at 3.4 with no issue at all.

    I will be adding a CooliT Domino ALC which I won on PUREOC and once installed would love to learn how to use all the settings on my Bios so I can acchieve a stable 3.8 or higher overclock.

    I will be asking alot of questions so please be patient with me.
