My P35 board didn't play well with Quad. So I changed to a P45 board which I think is a mate for it.....and a newer Cooler Master Hyper Z600R to handle the heat.
I got up to 500FSB but passed only 2 hrs with P95 small FFTs
@ 486FSB = OK P95 small FFTs 6 hrs but had problem FREEZING with OCCT Mix
Finally, I settled at 3.36GHz @ 480FSB with a nice low Vcore with decent temperature.
Very tight fit.
