I bumped mine to 400 MHz FSB with DDR2-800 memory speed for a few days to verify that it worked stably. It's run at stock speed ever since.

I agree. Most P45 era motherboards support 400Mhz FSBs for the QX9770, so pushing it to 400 is often considered "free." You may remember when many Q6600's were pushed to 333 from 266, same story.Airmantharp wrote:...so just consider ~400MHz to be the maximum normal overclock, and call anything over that a bonus.

Why not? Was that the "gimme a driver" issue?DrDillyBar wrote:Tried everything except my D2X audio in the end.
