    Thanks guys for the tips.
    I went back started from scratch again with fresh install XP Pro (Vista Ultimate previously) and 7600GS from the parts bin.
    .... and this is what I got...
    Lower Vcore voltage, and able pushed a little further to 3.04GHz
    These rams are great....low cas lantency, required only 1.9 volts, and NOT even a bit warm to the touch @ 868MHz no sweat.

    It's about time this system to be enclosed in its case.

    @ 3.01GHz


    @ 3.07GHz


    2 hours of Blend


    1 hour of OCCT


    New Spec: Q8200 @ 3.07GHz
    4x1GB Transcend AXEram PC6400 800MHz @ 876MHz
    FSB;DRAM= 1;1

    Just wasting time until my water cooling comes in ... it seems the Q8200 can run at stock speeds extremely undervolted.

    Minimum Vcore needed per fsb at stock PLL/VTT/Ref/MCH

    Most tests ran prime95 for 45 minutes to 1.5 hours. Some tests ran overnight as I slept. It seems 450fsb at stock vtt/pll/etc can be had for almost stock vcore for people who care about cpu lifespan. I can't see this setting being any more dangerous in the long term than stock.

    I know this is an old thread but,just thought id throw this in as my memory is the same as Sams.
    For 500-505 fsb/1000-1010 mhz the memory needs 2.15 v

    Thanks for the info mate. I swapped out with Transcend AXEram.........I'll put the GSkill back in and try to match your speed to see if it would helps with my P35 chipset. Thanks.

    EDIT: I just tried it..... NOT WORKING AT ALL. My board has its limits and limited options.

    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.

    V nice.
    Yeh its hard to find posts on Q8200 now.
    Im not big into screenies.I had to take the one above fast before my everest 30 day freebie ran out!
    Im running 490 now ,voltages more like steven-1979,except the gskill only needs 2.08v in bios.
    Its weird tho your case pic doesnt look too unlike mine.Is that an akasa fan?
    Mines angled like that too except its blowing down on the ram and nb from the front .
    Maybe ill try for a pic of it,Had to cut a hole in the side of the cheap case to get enough height for the v8.
    Anyway it doesnt seem like there are many running this mbrd at 550 fsb,which is what id need to make it worth buying new ram.
    Maybe the processor wont go over 3.6 3.57 was the best i managed(unstable).
    If thats it,on air, Idbe better off getting a higher mult cpu the good ol gskill would be fine for x8 multipliers and up.

    Hey,

    I have a q8200 all stock an I wanted to overclock. Though I have a stock cpu fan and stock rear fan. I ran a prime95 test for 1min 16sec and the temps went up to 72 degrees so I stopped the test cause I dont know if thats too hot. Is this normal? Also my rear fan is pretty loud at times.

    Heres a pic of the inside of my tower and my psu.

    Back when I had my Q8200 I was using the XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 and was very happy with it. I'm not sure how much it would cost in Australia ... I assume the price will be a bit higher than in the US. I got it for $27 from Newegg back then.

    I ac tually never ran it with the stock cooler. Bought the Xigmatek at the same time.

    I would recommend you buy this Xigmatek Dark Knight S1283V... $39.99 which came with a back plate and bolts to secure tight and properly....the clips are also compatible with i7 just incase you may want to upgrade in the future.
