Unlocking x2 555 be

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys.

This is my first thread here on this forum. I would like to get some help from You Guys.

My Spec is:
X2 555 BE C3 revision ,bought just few weeks earlier
GIGABYTE GA-MA78LMT-US2H
OCZ DDR3 Super Low Voltage 1333 Platinium
CoolerMaster 500W
XFX 8800GT Aplha Dog Edition
Arctic Freezer Xtreme rev.2

Bios is F10.

First attempt of unlocking it was succsesfull.
I go to Bios , ACC -hybrid and unlocked all cores.
My system boot up , then i looked in to CPU-Z i what i saw there was Deneb B55 with all 4 cores activated . Was running Prime95 about an hour and was rock solid . Now lets get to the point when things are getting tricky . After rebooting system wont boot up and MB is giving me sound error. 1long 3shorts. I have checked it and it looks to me i am having power issues. Strange because 500W i think is enough for my specs. only thing i can do about it is clear CMOS and back to default X2 555 BE.
I have read that my MB is having crappy 3+1 phase . And i am having some graphic signal problems as well. Is my MB VRM's bad or something ??
That's pitty i cant use my X2 unlocked . But on the other side 2 cores are overclockable ass hell . Hit 4018Ghz at 1.360V .
THANKS FOR FAST REPLY

Board looks like a 4+1 phase layout from the pictures I googled. Probably not ideal for OCing this chip, but I would be surprised if it gave out after an hour of Prime95.

Have you tried clearing the BIOS and starting again? Many times the disabled cores are significantly weaker than the officially enabled ones, and you may need to bump voltages.

Then know that your board may burn up. You can test your CPU for it's unlocking potential on your board, but pick up a good 8+2 heatsinked board with unlocking capabilities if you want to overclock without worries.

You can probably safely test stock unlocking stability on your board if you have good cooling and direct fans at the power phases, I tested mine on a 3+1 MSI before I got the M4A79XTD Evo. But there is risk.
