Have you tried to unlock it? I've heard that badly OCing AthII x3 have better chance to unlock to Phenom quad.
I gonna try your suggestion..see if that works for me
By the way, when you say set the timings to CL9 do you mean set it to stock timings
You know what, I did try to unlock it to a quad core and good thing my mobo supports it... I can get boot up in Window without any issue..it's just that when I checked the temperatures of each core it jumped all the way to 70 degrees for each one of them based on HW Monitor..
I think the it has a faulty sensor.. I even tried to stress test it using Prime for 30 minutes and so far so good... I just couldn't tell if I'm still within safe temperature due to the faulty sensors... Any tips in finding out if I'm still within the safe temperature for an Athlon with faulty sensors??
