Question Any good advice to help me OC a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3PD?

Hi all!

Just purchased a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3PD that was on sale. I read tons of great reviews regarding this MB. I just wanted to know if anyone here has one and if they are happy with it and if they have any suggestions for me.

I will put a Q9550 in it.



Intel i5-3570
ASRock Z77 Extreme4
GeForce 560Ti
Seasonic SS660XP Platinum
Corsair Vengeance 1600 16GB
Antec H20 620
Intel 180GB SATA III 520
WD Black Caviar 2 TB
Seagate Green 3 TB
Gentle Typhoons [3]
Scythe Fan Controller w/Temps

Well easiest way.. (for me..)

Find a ballpark safe 24/7 Voltage that the q9550 runs at, run your voltage up to that immediately. The next step is increasing the FSB, 5-10 works safely, then stress test. When you found an OC you are happy with, or a FSB Hole somewhere, start dropping the voltage and see if your OC is still stable with the lower voltages.

With an x8.5 Multiplier you should get 3400Mhz (400FSB) to 3700Mhz (3697.5 Mhz @ 435 FSB), but mileage can vary, so just experiment with it.
I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:
