Official Phenom II x2 500 Club! - Page 180

post #1791 of 4289
I just set my Unlocked 550 to Tri Core in the bios to see what would happen and it turned in to an athlon II x3 450 Rana core?? Um did anyone else experience this, I have been through most of theis threat but didnt see any mention but I mighta missed it, I just find it a bit interesting that it's goes from a phenom to an athlon. Link to the validation below.

Paperkuts, that's interesting. Does CPU-Z display the correct L3 cache? I'm not too sure about this but I don't think there is a Athlonx II X3 450 all though I could be wrong. Rana and Kuma are similar cores I believe.

Good luck

How exactly did you set it to 3 cores and was it with the M2RSH?

Dopamin3, I believe Bagpuss posted the instructions a few weeks ago. I have the link saved in my favorites at home so I currently can't recall. Basically you adjust the ACC features accordingly for each core (ie. +2%). One thing that was specifically mentioned was that the CMOS had to be cleared upon making the changes.

Good luck

Hey Dopamin, im my BIOS for the M2RSH I can select how many cores the CPU uses, I think I did see a thread around here from the Athlon II x3 rana club so gonna check it out.

sorry I dont kno how to do more than one quote at a time but it was easier than messing around with the ACC percantages lol and also when I use the ACC to unlock i have to kill all power to the PSU and hold the power button in to get rid of any power stored in capacitors, then I boot up lol which is interesting but could someone look at my rig and tell me could this be something to do with my PSU not having enough juice??

Added CPU-z info that i forgot to earlier

OK, I feel like I'm going backwards in my overclock here, settings that use to be stable are now ending in BSOD Pretty soon I'll be lucky to run at stock everything I'm able to get into windows fine, but prime95 will just not stay running for more than a few hours without BSOD no matter what settings I have. I've done memtest several times with no errors for 12+ hours and ran windows memory diagnostic as well with no errors. Since the memory tests seem to run fine outside of windows and since I use to be able to run stable with just the cpu oc settings, I'm wondering is it possible that my windows install is getting messed up? Is there a way to check? I don't mind reinstalling my windows image since I haven't used the computer for anything yet but if there is a way to know for sure that it's the problem instead of a hardware or settings problem it'd be nice. Part of the BSOD error message is STOP 0x00000124 with a few other sets of numbers inside parentheses, if that helps any. Any advice would be great? Thanks

You just need to reload the OS, it may be getting corrupted. That happened to me... I started getting the BSODs where i didn't get them before. So i ghosted my image back over and i was fine again.... or just reload...

PaperKuts, you may be cutting it close with a 3870X2 and a 3870. Wattage wise and 12volt amperage may not be enough. Your OCZ 600W power supply has 48 amps total on the 12volt rail. This is perfectly fine for a single video card but for a 3870X2 and another 3870 may not be. If you suspect your power supply being the culprit then try removing one of the video cards (preferably the X2) and see if that helps.

Kylton, does the BSOD's only occur during full load testing? What are your temperatures like during Prime 95? If it's crashing at stock settings then that is certainly not normal and there could be something else wrong. It's good to hear though that Memtest86+ came back with positive results. Just out of curiosity but could you go back and re-run the diagnostic test with tests 5 and 8? Let us know if that shows anything.

Good luck

Thanks think3r, I'm going to try replacing the os and see if that helps.

The BSOD's seem to only happen during full load testing though I haven't had the system on idle for more than a few hours at a time so I can't be 100% sure right now.

Temps at load have always maxed at 57c though I have done a few overnight tests so I guess I could have missed something then.

I haven't done everything at stock yet, the cpu still was oc'ed some, but everything else was, but if replacing the os doesn't help I think I'll try resetting the bios.

I'll have to get back to you on the memtest86+ after I run it again, but the last time I ran it I had test #8 run for 6+ hours without any errors.
