Advice on a TLB error while unlocking cores

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have an Athlon II X3 440, which I've managed to unlock, and overclock to 4Ghz. While I was overclocking, I noticed a warning in the event log from the WHEA-Logger - Event ID 19. I reads as follows :-

A corrected hardware error occurred.

Error Source: Corrected Machine Check

Error Type: TLB Error

Processor ID Valid: Yes
Processor ID: 0x0
Bank Number: 1
Transaction Type: Instruction
Processor Participation: N/A
Request Type: N/A
Memory/Io: N/A
Memory Hierarchy Level: Level 1
Timeout: N/A


Now initially I thought It was to do with the over clocking, but after some testing (IE going back to stock speed, disabling unleashing etc) I've figured out its to do with the unlocked core. I think it may be an error in the L1 instruction cache. Now the question is - its obviously flagging up a problem with the core - it happens at stock speeds, and disappears if i disable unleashing. BUT my machine seems to run fine, including prime95 testing with the core unlocked. The only thing I notice is a few Event ID 19's in the system log.

So do you think it'll be safe to run the core unlocked with this error?

opinions please! :-)

If it passes 12-24hours Prime95 with round checking on, then I'd say it's good to go.
