    You are not going to get much further on a X48 board as the boards are severly fsb limited with a 45nm quad. My Q9550 does 3.6Ghz on stock volts but to get any further i have to pump some serious voltage through the board (NB etc) and even then it tops out below 450 fsb. I so badly want to see how far i can push this Q9550 that i got a Gigabyte P43 board (£35 brand new :D) so that i can get rid of this DFI X48 and stick the MSI P45 Platinum from my second rig in there.
