Wahrheitoderpflicht, speaking of low voltage cmos batteries have you checked yours? Make sure it's at least 3.0+ volts. I typically use a multimeter when checking the voltage. If you have another spare battery try swapping it out.

Let us know



Axxess+, that is correct

Good luck
Yea you wouldnt think that having a low battery would cause so many problems

If you want to be guaranteed the unlock just buy a 940 to begin with. It's a gamble.

The best chances were when they first released. I bought mine on newegg a week after launch and it unlocked and I read everyone on newegg said they did too.

The later batches don't unlock as much but you could always take a gamble.

I would say you don't have a better chance getting it here..... Like the other person said... better chance when the chip first comes on the market..... then the chance goes down...

I got mine in the first week, too 8[. I just suck at luck.

Unless I'm doing something wrong when trying to unlock, but I'm pretty sure I'm not.

Quick update on my temp problem, after a bit of looking at the settings I realised Speedfan was reporting CPU temps as GPU temps! I think the actual temps of the CPU are either Temp 2 or Temp 3 in speed fan in which case everything appears OK. I will try to OC now. Does anyone know of any other good temperature monitoring software?
Again thanks for all the help.

CoreTemp is good for, well, core temps. Everest is also supposed to be a good one.
