question about unlocking a sempron 140

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have successfully unlocked the second cpu however when i run orthos or prime95 it immediately fails. However when i do benchmarks they continuously outperform the single core scores.

Any Suggestions?

I also dont have anything else overclocked. Everything is running at stock

When ever you unlock, you better be ready to stabilize the CPU with overvolting

Try 1.35 and then start bumping .01 until you get stability

Stability would be determined by running prime 95 successfully?

Yea but I used to use OCCT for a couple hours. Semprons are usually beasts when it comes to OC'ing as well. Its cool you got it unlocked, but if you had to, you could always lock it again to single core and just overclock the hell out of that core. Me and a buddy had a sempron 140 up to 3.5 gigz on STOCK voltage. We didn't try to go higher so whos to say it couldn't have. But it boils down to what you want. 1 fast OC'ed core or 2 not as fast cores.

Be sure to keep an eye on your cpu temps.

I wouldnt mind over clocking one. it seems my cpu is being used up to 100% alot as a single core. I dont see anywhere in my bios to update it by .01 all i see is this

I used OCCT and it failed after about a minute and this is the picture it showed me

Could it be failing cause its unable to read the cpu temp? not cause the cpu is actually failing
