    I'm currently trying to overclock my Intel Q9450 (stock 2.66 GHz) to 3.0 GHz, wondering if these numbers look ok:[​IMG]

    FSB: 375 Mhz
    Multiplier: 8x
    Final Clock: 3000 MHz
    Voltage: 1.3V

    Idle Temp: 46~50 C
    Load Temp: 55-65 C
    HSF: Zalman CNPS 9700

    Motherboard (Asus Maximus Formula):
    Northbridge: 1.35V
    Temp: 52 C

    RAM (OCZ Platinum DDR2 800Mhz PC6400 Revision 2):
    Timings: 4-4-4-15 CL2 T2
    Frequency: 901 MHz

    Idle/Load Temp: Unknown
    Cooling: Heatspreader + OCZ XTC RAM Cooler with 2x 60mm Fans


    Antec P180B with 4x 120mm Fan (2 intake, 2 exhaust) in upper chamber, 1x 120mm fan in lower chamber.

    PSU: Antec TPQ 850W Modular

    Any opinions on these numbers? especially the temperature and voltages. I have some experience overclocking my E6600, but I don't know the stock voltages on the NB, or what the normal operating temps for the Q9450 is. TIA [​IMG]
