You MUST set the cores you want to turn on to (+2%) and leave the core you want turned off to (0%)....NOT (-2%)


You MUST reset the CMOS if you want to try Core 3 turned off, Core 4 turned on or Core 3 on, Core 4 off....just changing the values after a failed boot wont work.
hi i was able to unlock mine turn it to auto...but the cores all equal -2% not 2% is this normal?

My MSI board sets them all to -2% when in Auto mode, X4 working for me.

From another post I seen sais... Regarding ACC % - from what I've heard, using the -x% tends to make the CPU run more "efficiently," lowering power when possible. As for higher +x%, they tend to give more room for error, which supposedly provides more OC headroom.

Trying to unlock 1 core to make it a tri core wasn't successful...
Sadly, I've finely come to terms that my 550 will always be a x2, lol
I do have pics but I'm using an iPod touch with wifi for Internet access and I don't think I can load them up
as for underclocking my ram to get higher CPU oc I think I'll just leave it at 3.9 until I get a ddr3 board in a year or so

Jinny1, try both +2% and -2%. I'd test both configurations to see what provides the best results for you. You may actually be able to get a higher OC with -2%...who knows until you try.

This would actually be something else I would like to know as well. Maybe HondaGuy can pop in and answer this for you us.

Ocfanboy, you could however pick up a cheap set of DDR2-1066 memory. The price isn't all that bad and should give you some more OC'ing room for that big 4Ghz. Have you tried relaxing the sub-timings and giving your memory some voltage?

PepsiLove, that is correct. Clear your CMOS and then go into the bios and make the changes. Again though there is no guarantees it will work but apparently this is the procedures used. In regards to your last question...moderators do not have reputation

Good luck

It has the 790gx chip set mentioned in the unlocking thread for phenom chips.......

i have a question about the A.C.C function in the bios......it has three options: disable, auto, and enable core........enable core allows u to pick specific cores and + or - values...ie: -2, +3, +12..and so on.....

sooo, what do i set each core too??????
or do i specify the "locked" cores a + value????

so far, no boot up, have to reset cmos
Set ACC to auto, and leave the rest to default, you should get all 4 cores you wanted. Well at least that was how I did it to my 720 BE.

Just posting what I read somewhere else I'd guess it is just like any other overclocking... it will depend on the CPU, mobo, cooling, etc.. I doubt there is any set rule what % setting to use.
