1.As far as i can tell, you have a 780g Northbridge and a SB700 Southbridge, this chipset does not allow ACC to be enabled, so no 4th core, same problem i have.
2. There are no guarantees, as each chip is different. Although im sure you should get 3.6 GHz if not higher. 780g chipset shouldnt effect your overclocking, i had mine upto 4.1 GHz for 30 seconds then got BSOD, i needs better cooling.
If anyone has a xiggy for sale or CCF... Edited by Willhemmens - 4/16/09 at 3:05pm
