Anytime I attempt to go higher (by adjusting the multiplier) it will immediately crash (if I use OverDrive) or fail to boot (if I use the BIOS settings). It seems like this just happens when I adjust the voltage, because I can get to 3.6ghz on stock voltage, although that doesn't even appear to be stable.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!
Make sure your memory is stable first With memtest86+ and prime95 blend. You may need to add nb or nb-cpu volts.

Dopamin3, I was under the impression that you need a SB750 chipset in order to unclock the "disabled" cores? I believe a few other chipsets will work but I'm not sure if the SB700 will

Zerogspacecow, do you have any CPU-Z screen shots that you could share with us that show your 3.6Ghz overclock? Make sure to include each tab if you can.

Good luck

I haven't made any adjustments to the memory, but I'll go ahead and test it when I get home. Should I set the CPU back to stock before I test the memory?

Edit: th1nk3r, I'll post screens when I get home.

I'll also be doing a fresh install of Windows 7 tonight (going from the RC to the RTM).

Zerogspacecow, you could if you would like. That way we can test the memory to see if it's failing/faulty.

Btw see my post above

Good luck

Okay, I'll try that too.

By the way, I tried unlocking the other 2 cores, and while booting I just got a ton of artifacting on the Windows 7 glowing logo thing, then immediate crashing. I can't remember if that was on stock multiplier or not though.

Edit: Also, should I try disabling Cool and Quiet and C1E?

When you unlock the cores, I believe that's what happen. I don't really think it's worth the trouble unlocking the cores ,as you'll have worst experiances in games and applications and probably instability.

Any game engine will not use the 4 CPUs.
