ah still no luck, well im not gonna mess with it anymore until either a new bios comes out or something. but a dual at 3.6ghz aint bad.

Scrypt3r, I believe the Phenom II X2 and Athlon II X2 have the same IMC as the 965 (Deneb). All are AM3 components. The same should apply to the Phenom II X3's as well.

Good luck

Darn. The battery trick, ram, nor the biostar bios recovery methods worked. I do believe that I have bricked yet another motherboard.

Iirc, the Phenom II x4 920 and 940 had the old Phenom IMC from the athlon64, the x2 and x3, x4 9x5 series' had the new one that has DDR3 as well, but the newest 965 has an entirely new NB or something in the CPU.

Try going back to the January BIOS. I couldn't unlock with the newest, but going back worked for me.

3.9Ghz at 1.46 is pretty darn good in my opinion!

Good luck
thanks
my ht and nb are both running at 2060...
when I overclocked to 4.0 I tried lowering the both below the stock 2000 but no luck... Also left them on auto where they stayed on 2060 also no luck...
Could it be that this is a max for my processor? I've also read that 64 bit could be holding me back?

Such a good CPU. Probably my favorite dual core seeing it's so cheap @ 3GHz and being able to make it 4 cores at up and around to 4GHz just makes it seem not legal.

Im having fun undervolting my 550 now.......now i've got the Quad Core freebie out of my system and discovering absolutely NONE of the games and Apps i have actually need 4 cores, i switched back to dual core mode and i am running it at 1.175 vlts 2.5Ghz....

And in the only games i play, Battlefield 2 and some Steam Source games, i still get 100fps+!!!!

For now i'll take the saving on my electricity bill, and as and when i need more CPU power, i'll ramp up the volts/Ghz/cores....
