Hi guys! I've fiddled with my 550BE for some time now, it doesnt unlock unfortunately and max out stable clock i've had, is 3.958GHz. That was totally stable in games, desktop @1.6V That was at 203x19.5 any higher and it gets only barely to windows and bsod's before i could get everest/cpuz open..even at 1.65v
At 3.958 it held like 40C under load(23C ambient)... God, i love the Scythe Ninja2, at 3.5GHz and stock voltage, it hovers only a few degrees over ambient in idle and maybe 5-6C under full load.. !!
Weird, that 3.958 is absolutely stable for normal use and any higher suddenly isn't.. Also if that 3.958 comes at 1.6V, it's probably the wall..
I dunno what else to do, i really hoped for 4ghz...it's so close gosh darn it...
Anyways, im wondering, if i could be added to the list.

Cheers,
Mart

Oh, and here is the screenie:

ASROCK A780GXH/128M bios 1.40 (tested from 1.10).

OK, my problem: The board unlock the cpu, in the POST shows COUNT 4, and it recognised well like a Phenom II X4. Ok, but when goes into windows 7 64 bit, just in the inicialiting windows...reboots! same in XP, in XP 32bit. I up the voltage but nothing. I do a lot of changes in BIOS but nothing.

BUTTTTTT..... in mscongif, in advanced boot options, I put number of processors = 2, reboot, unlock cores, and it goes into windows, and CPUZ shows a Phenom II X4 but only with 2 cores... so i think, yeah, now i go again to msconfig and modify the boot value from 2 to 3 or 4 processors but...only 1 or 2 options, like with the CPU previous to unlock.

any idea? the cpu is 0925 APMW brach. I'm very glad because lot of people unlock this branch...

Thanks a lot.
EPS 12v conector has to be 4 or 8 pins?

Yes, 1.6v on Scythe Ninja2, i wouldn't have raised it so high, but the temps are just fantastic with that thing.

WHAT 1.6v for 3.95Ghz......I hit 4.3Ghz with 1.55v

And I run at 4.033Ghz 24/7 with 1.5125v after lowering from 1.55v. Try lowering your v abit 1.6v in my eyes is a bit extreme for 3.9Ghz

Congrats on the new bios flash. So now it's showing up as a quad-core and rebooting properly? Let us know how the stability testing goes.

I let Prime95 run overnight about 11-12 hours, ran without any hiccups going to test it with OCCT tonight and then i'll see what i need to do for extra stability.

I'm not going to overclock it or anything so can some one tell me what setting i will need to change in BIOS i.e. voltages etc

I guess i got a crappy chip..:swearing:
I Raised the voltage until it booted and was stable in 3.958ghz, not gonna run it 24/7 lol.. 3.5ghz @ 1.35v is my 24/7 setting.
Oh and 202x19.5 = 3.94ghz needed only 1.5V, but 203x19.5 = 3.958 needed 1.6V, i guess theres the wall, or something is limiting the oc..

Loopy, welcome to Overclock.net

If you could please add your system specifications to your signature. This will let us know what type of hardware you have. You can do this by going here: http://www.overclock.net/specs.php?do=addsystem.

How much cpu voltage did you start with? Remember too just because your stepping was included with the "successful" unlocks doesn't mean it's going to be stable. If you it's reporting as a Phenom II X4 at POST then it did successfully unlock...stability wise though you may have to bump up the cpu voltage a tad or perhaps adjust your memory settings (sub-timings, voltage ect). You might also have a faulty quad-core so that is something to consider as well.

JMT668, that almost sounds like a video adapter issue. If you run your 550 as a dual-core does it display the same artifacts?

Loopy, if your motherboard has the 8-pin EPS power connector then it's recommended that you plug in the 8-pin 12volt connector. Try to avoid plugging in the 4-pin connector. A board with a 8-pin EPS connector expects a lot of current so please use that.

Cantona7, is your goal to manually input the bios settings? Sorry I'm little confused by your above statement. By the way I don't think you mentioned this but were you able to unlock the other cores and boot successfully into Windows?

Good luck guys
