    Hi,

    I got my Q9300 today and don't know that the voltage should be. On the box it says 1.25V max, the bios sets it to 1.325V and Core Temp and Everest tells me the the vid is 1.0500V. The core temps also looks high. The cpu temp is 22C and the core temps idle at 45C. I also noticed the the Tj max temp on core temp is 105C, maybe the core temps are being reported wrong. The cpu idles higher than my q6600 g0 both currently at 3ghz.

    Does anyone have experience with the new q9300's

    Thanks,

    I downloaded it and will check it tonight. I am also going to check what is the lowest voltage that I can set the cpu to boot at 3Ghz.

    Here are my experiences for anyone that is interested:

    1. My P5E with bios 0605 makes the vcore 1.4V when left an auto.
    2. Core Temp and Everest report my vid as 1.050V and stepping M1
    3. Real Temp report my Tjmax as 95C with the core temps 38-40C and Core Temp reports my Tjmax as 105C with the core temps 52-55C. This is while my actual cpu temp is 28C and motherboard 38C.
    4. I can hit 3.2Ghz with the vcore on 1.225V and everything else left on auto.
    5. When stressing the cpu it never goes above 37C and when my Q6600 @ 3.2Ghz heated up my radiators that you can feel hot hair from the fans, with the Q9300 @ 3.2Ghz you feel almost no heat from the radiators. This makes my crossfire cards (same loop) 5C on the core cooler.
    6. I get a higher 3dmark06 cpu score with the q9300 @ 3.2Ghz (+-4820) than the q6600 @ 3.4Ghz.

    I am going to try 455x7.5 (3.4Ghz) tonight with a vcore of lower than 1.25V then I am going to try 480x7.5 (3.6) under 1.3V and leave it there 24/7. I hope the board can handle the high fsb.

    PS: the cpu, 2xhd3870, nb and sb are liquid cooled in the same loop.
