Thank you for the reply, I did take a look at the HR-09 ad HR-05 heatsinks but I'm not sure if they'll fit my board and if so which ones since they aren't listed in any of the heatsinks motherboard compatibility list. Even though my temps did increase, are temperatures of TMPIN1 = 46C and TMPIN2 = 53C high enough for me to worry about? I do plan on upgrading to a Piledriver processor in the future and I'm sure after overclocking that those temps will increase as well. What are high temps for TMPIN 1 & 2, and what temps are considered a good range? I'm just now starting to learn about the importance of good mosfet cooling when you're overclocking, but if the temps I'm hitting now aren't high enough to be of concern then I'd rather just leave them be and worry about it after I upgrade my processor.

Those temps certainly aren't terrible so I wouldn't worry too much. Thermalright used to have a large compatibility list on their site that they updated pretty regularly but for the life of me I can't find it. Would have to research a little more in regards to the VRM heatsink mounting holes on the motherboard, but it's not like you have stay awake at night thinking your going to pop a mosfet or anything like that wink.gif

hello.

I have a phenom x2 550 (revision RB-C2) board ga-990xa-ud3 and was wondering what I'm doing wrong when unlock the cores in bios.
already put in auto unlock core and windows starts and i go to the net and everything but when I put the prime blocks computer
when i put in three core, windows starts i play fifa, need for speed the run but after a while the computer crashes and reset is the solution. i dont have any blue screen. if i put prime with the youtube computer freezes.
already put the memory voltage 1.6, 1.5 cpu voltage. Nortbrige 1.2 cpu, cpu 1.4 NB Control VDD and HT Link to 1.3.
another thing is that in 2 cores i put the speed of 3.8 and nb to 2700 and ht link to 2700 and computer goes ok with the prime95 and youtube.
Sorry for bad english
thanks

Did you use the x2 550 in a previous motherboard where the additional cores did unlock successfully? If this is the first time booting up with that CPU, there is a good chance that the additional cores are actually bad on the CPU. If you successfully unlocked it on a previous board, then at least it gives us a direction to go in.

If it has been previously unlocked on a different board, try setting core unlocker to manual and then enable all 4 cores. Set the CPU speed to stock and start with voltage at 1.4v as a good baseline. Keep HT link at stock and CPU-NB frequency at stock (speed and voltage). NB voltage should be at stock and bus frequency should be stock at 200MHz. The first thing we want to ensure that all 4 cores can be unlocked at stock. With everything stock, except for CPU voltage at 1.4, boot into Windows and immediately rum Prime95 and see what happens.

Should Prime95 run for more than a few hours, reboot and go back into the BIOS and try raising the CPU speed only (using the CPU multiplier). Keep voltage at 1.4v and then go back into Windows and rum Prime95 again. Keep this process up until the system crashes. At that point, raise the CPU voltage another notch and keep testing. With this you should be able to find max stable OC for the CPU unlocked. If you have adequate cooling, you should be safe running the CPU voltage up to 1.5v-1.55v max.

no.
is the first time that i try to unlock the cpu,
is very strange with the 3 cores ok and sometimes blocking the games

In some cases with AMD CPUs where additional cores have been locked, the additional cores are actually defective or do not run according to AMD's specifications. In these cases, while the cores can be activated, they will never be stable. Sounds like one of the additional cores could be stable so at the very least you can unlock to a triple-core CPU. Just keep playing around with which cores are enabled and the CPU voltage and hopefully you can get stable.

what program that i see the core is bad?
when i test withe prime the first test is ok but when i passed to blend is frozen the pc.
anything with the ram when i unlocked the cores?
post #798 of 3278
with prime95 in small FFTs i can test and go to the youtube.
everything in auto except vcore to 1.45


edit
i tested each core with prime95 in blend test and freeze with the youtube. why in small FFTs run ok and in blend freeze. very strange

If it's the blend test that's failing then it could be an issue with RAM. Not that the RAM is bad, but you might need to bump the CPU-NB VID in order to stabilize RAM usage between the unlocked cored. Not sure what the stock CPU-NB VID is for your CPU but I would try bumping it to 1.25v in the BIOS, keeping all other settings where they are and see if that helps stabilize it.
