HondaGuy, man I love those temperatures. Since it's a dual-core, I bet the lower TDP really helps out a lot!

thlnk3r -how do you think is it safe to put up NB Vcore to 1.3 V I mean on processor. On Biostar TA790GX 128M is V core and NB vcore is the same. I just trying to find stable on 2600 NB but on 1.265 it crashed not in tests in COD 4 MW after 5-7 minites of gameing. I see your X2 550BE Ver2- file and your expirience tall my that you didn't try to fined Core 3600 NB-2600 HT-2000 ((( I realy want to understand why on this board in DEFAULT with 3.1Gh NB vcore is 1.35 and if it is on default then how long it will work untill burn, and also when you put 1.25 is it low from the begining and maybe it is the reason of creshing. Tests like snm_1.9.1 and prime is stable but games are crashing(( What do you think ?

I ran a program I wrote that graphs the CPU Usage and MHz per core at a rate of 10 samples per second and seems the CPU MHz doesn't raise in relation to the CPU usage correctly on the core that needs it or not at all. When I disabled CnQ the video played fine, no dropped frames.

Thinking CnQ is screwed up I set the CPU back to 2 cores, enabled CnQ and played the 1080p video again, no dropped frames, plays perfect.

I knew there would be at least one catch to running unlocking cores!
Just watching a movie here 1080 @ stock quad 550 with CnQ enabled, watching it thru Nero, No problems here, My CPU clocks never really hit 1900Mhz with CnQ enabled.......Need some more details

Basically using the same hardware , OS, software ,and even the same video file I had in my 4 year old s939 4200+ X2, no dual core fixes or any that was ever needed on that system. I been using Video Lan Player for a few years, its all I use.

I doubt the AMD DCO would make any difference, if it was a timing issue then frames would be dropped when run as a dual core too, it only happens when the extra 2 cores are unlocked *and* CnQ is enabled.

With the software I wrote I can see how CnQ is acting, its like it doesn't know which core needs the MHz boost, so the cores are stuck at say 800MHz or 1900Mhz when they really should be at 2400 or max cpu speed.

I can always just disable CnQ and let the PC suck another 20W from the wall at idle, oh well.... can't say I didn't try being green and help save the environment, but heck with all the Folders & SETI PCs running out there it's not like I stood a chance at making a difference anyway .

Can you use AMD Overdrive? You know about the green circle, click on it makes red outer ring around green circle, puts it in CnQ mode also

Valdin, Vcore and NB Vcore are different. I believe Vcore is the voltage for the processor itself. NB Vcore or CPU-NB voltage is for the "NB Frequency". With something over 2600Mhz NB Frequency I would try a +.200 bump in voltage from stock. Test that and see if that works. Have you tried dropping your CPU-NB multiplier? That will bring down the NB Frequency and hopefully provide more stability (that's of course if the NB is unstable).

Good luck

Oh is that what that is for, would of never guessed!

After some more testing (and even using a fresh install of XP from a backup image), even with CnQ disabled with 4 cores if I move the video player around the desktop while it's playing it shows some dropped frames. So I went back to 2 cores and tried the same thing but with CnQ enabled and it didn't drop a single frame, moving the player window around even felt smoother.

So it seems even though every test I through at this thing passed there is just something not right after unlocking the extra cores. Maybe I'll play with the per core setting next week if I get bored, I gotta a long weekend to start and need to get outta here, thanks for the feedback!

hi dopamin could you put me in ur club/google sheet???

This is my highest core speed for dual-core



This is my highest stable core speed for unlocked Quad-core
