Phenom II X2 555 BE woes

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Alright so I've been using this Awesome cpu for over a year now on my M4A785TD-V Evo with all latent cores unlocked at 4.2Ghz Right? well I just recently Upgraded my computer with the stuff in my Signature and kept my cpu but now it won't stay stable with the unlocked cores and now im all ---->

Does anyone know what I should do to fix this or if my Motherboard just doesn't like my processor...

Oh boy! Here we go.

Did you update the bios?

Start the whole overclocking process over. Work on the unlocked core first, and then start overclocking.

Set the bios core unlocker to Auto instead of Manual. Reboot and tell me if it unlocks all 4.

Sorry for not replying sooner, thought this thread was buried. Ty for replying:

Bios Update: No bios update available for this Board(First Release Bios only)

Tried unlocking manually and auto.

Any unlocked cores either in 0,1,2 - 0,1,3 or 0,1,2,3 Mode, cause the system to hang up even on stock settings and/or with upped Voltages. As I stated earlier I've used this CPU successfully for over a Year with all Cores unlocked just on a different board.

The bios will register the Unlock just fine but windows quite literally stalls when running in 3~4 core mode (no BSOD just freezes)

This is throwing me for a loop here as this is/was my best CPU and It's now malfunctioning.

EDIT: I've even tried reinstalling windows without any OC to the system then Unlocking/Overclocking afterwards.

Just so you know, you should always use Auto on Asus boards when doing core unlocking. If it is unsuccessful, try more vcore and CPU/NB voltage.

Manual is only used when locking cores. If I use manual, a core always fails. I am rock solid on Auto everytime.

Do you have LLC on?

Ok I just went through another round of testing and modifying and I still can't get it stable under windows. I've tried enabling LLC,Modifying Voltages, Adjusting Ram timings, Adjusting CPU Overclocks and Underclocks but nothing works. I'm going to shut down and transfer my cpu to the old board and see what happens.

I'll be back Online in a few hours, ty for the help.

Good luck. I just bought an X3 720 that unlocks and boots into Windows perfectly fine every time. But no matter what volts I stress it at, it just freezes as well. Maybe its an Asus thing, or a 990FX chipset thing. I dont have another board to test it in though.

Asrock 9 series UCC unlocking success

970 successful unlocking


990FX successful unlocking
- low output prob. due to very early beta UEFI release


HTH

I'm telling you my CPU was meant for this board: M4A785TD-V Evo Because im running on that board right now with all cores unlocked @4.0Ghz with zero problems I think im going to keep it in this system and just use my old athlon on my 990FX until I can get a new CPU because the Phenom II X4 B55 just feels naked with just two core operation...

Yeah, I'm beginning to think it's a chipset problem maybe they'll release a Bios update soon that fixes it?

You are not the first person I saw buy that board and upgrading from a similar 7xx chipset on a gigabyte. AMD Dude had the same issue.

Now my SSD has gone south...Good thing I have My amazing back up computer that I literally just put my Phenom in yesterday XD

My main rig is just having problem after problem lately right? Maybe it's time to buy some more parts to phase out the old ones...What cpu would you recommend other than the 955 BE cause my B55 does laps around that one. (My brother has the 955 in his rig)

If my main rig as working id be using an OLD Athlon 250 Regor and my SSD Just broke: Pics below

The power connector broke and I keep getting power fluctuations because the connector is loose, trust me I've tried to fix it but really this is still SATAII so...time for an Upgrade right?
