AMD athlonx3 445 Rana unlocking question.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I know that its not super often that CPUs can be unlocked, but i though id try it anyway. I went into my bios, which has ACC (its a biostar 770 i think) and after i noticed it had a greyed out AMD phenom x4 i though "well might as well try"

what ended up happening was after it rebooted my screen went to a black screen that said something about it not being able to be read, and what i keep reading after i googled it was it was normally linked to an incompatible piece of hardware (i really cant remember the exact words, i tryed it a while ago)

SO i was wondering if this had to do with some sort of outdated Bios, not enough voltage, or something like that? Does that screen mean i should just not bother trying again or that i can do something else that will give it another shot?

After realizing how taxing a game like FFXIV is on my CPU, i though i might as well try. Sorry if i sound like a total newb...im trying to learn, it just not always simple.

if it did not boot after you unlocked the cores then the other 4th core is bad and unusable.

You should just OC the other 3 if you want more performance.

yah it gives me some checksum error, so im guessing its a no-go. Oh well guess il just have to wait until i can upgrade.

I tryed a little overclocking, but i cant even tell if im doing it right (i dont fully get it) so i think leave it alone for now. thanks anyway.

sometimes when you unlock a core...there needs to be a bump to the vcore in order for it to be stable.
