phenom ii x2 555 unlock to quad help

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
so i am able to unlock the two extra cores, and it will run stable for a little, but then if i try to do anything intense, it locks up. like when i start prime95, it freezes before even one thing is tested. should i try raising the vcore a little to see if i can get it to stabilize? or some other suggestions? or is this a flat out sign that i wont be able to get them to work?

Raise the vcore to 1.40 for start and see what happens.
When you unlock,some cores usually need a little more voltage to stabilize.

Do a core balance first, one of the core's maybe off, if it is not stable at stock speed with 1.4v it's a bad core(s)
