AMD Phenom II X3 720 Bottleneck problem with video cards - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I'm just reading since I have the phenom 2 x3 720 black édition. Would unlocking his fourth core help any at all cut I know it lowers his 6mb cache to a 4 MB cache

Tell your mate to upgrade to the highest CPU his mobo will support. In my case it was the 945, but I wanted the black edition so went with the 940.
The 720 B.E. is not the C3 revision, so you got a guaranteed quad core, cherry picked, 720 B.E. with no D.D.R.3 I.M.C.
