Default Q9300 Oc

How high do these Q9300 overclock on Asus P5k Deluxe board? Right now, I'm on 450X7.5 1.2 Voltage real. It's stable up to 466X7.5 with 1.26 V. Any suggestions to lower the Vcore or increase the clock?

Can almost guarantee that your problem is your FSB - Quad cores simply don't like high FSB's, and even getting past 450 can be a real chore. If you're actually fully-stable at 466, give yourself a pat on the back.

One of the going gripes about the new 45nm processors are their lower multipliers, which is making it harder to get the really nice overclocks. A Vcore of 1.26 is nothing to worry about, as long as your loaded temps are staying below 65 degrees C, which shouldn't be too hard with a decent cooler.
