What Unlocks? -> The "Unlockable" CPU reference list - Page 8

post #71 of 136
On the 5200+, anything with the CACEC stepping code has the ability to unlock; other 5200+'s with a different code (usually 5 letters and then AE) is a true dual core that cannot be unlocked. Beneficial if you were looking to go to a B+M and buy one, you can look at the chip through the packaging and see.

^ I need to add the stepping-specific unlocking info to this list soon. I have things to do tonight so I will probably get to it tomorrow.

If i were to successfully unlock the 4th core and L3 cache of an Athlon II X3 450, and OC it to 3.4 GHz, would the performance be the same or similar as a Phenom II x4 965? Or would it differ in something other than the unlocked multiplier and name?

^ Yes, they are pretty much the same chip then.

I think the Sempron 180 might unlock to a Phenom FX-series processor. 5000+ @2.2 goes to FX-5000, 5200+ @2.3 goes to FX-5200, Sempron @ 2.4 = ? Also, each one has a 45W TDP.

I'd love to test this myself and find out but I can only find it at provantage and it's kind of pricey for something that performs lower than the Athlon II series :-\

^ Hm, that might be possible.

not sure if this question fits the thread - excuse me.

i have two PII X3 (740 & 715) which both unlock but their TPDs when unlocked shoots up beyond that of a quad core. is that normal? i've seen it as high as 160W. the temps though are manageble. the only way to tame the wattage down is to use Balance Power or in my XP system - Granola app.

Yea the TDP in programs like cpu-z would show ridiculous numbers example my 555 unlocked to a X3 shows up with a TDP of 168w or something, just a wrong reading the most those processors would pump out is 125w

If i happen to unlock my Athlon x3 to a Athlon II x4 B45 no L3 cache what is that an equivalent to? Would it be a good leap to upgrade to 2500k or a 1090T
