download cpu-z from the left side of this page http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php

then install and so on.
run cpu-z and then where it says validate beside the OK, click it.
finally post the link to the page that pops up : D

here it is

I know the voltage is a little high, but it never hit above 46 on my WC loop. It's not my daily OC though.

Not sure what's up with my GPU clocks in my validation. Obviously, they're not correct, they're supposed to be stock DK TOP clocks (815/925). Oh, duh... power play.

May I ask where you bought your 550BE at? Trying to get an idea where to buy mine from. I know it's a crap shoot, but want the highest probability of unlocking the cores. Hoping you say NewEgg
post #2577 of 4289
I bought my Phenom II x2 550BE a couple of weeks ago and was able to unlock the other 2 disabled cores, Windows XP boots and I could see the four cores unlocked in the Task Manager. My problem is when I try to watch videos online, my Internet Explorer keeps shutting down, this doesn't happen when I have the other cores disabled.

- Does this mean that the 2 disabled cores are unstable and I can't use them ???
- Or is there a setting in the Bios I can change to make the cores stable ???

This CPU is amazing I just started Overclocking it at 3.8ghz (locked), just by changing the multiplier to 19. Any recommendations in the settings to maximize the CPU performance. My mobo is a Gigabyte GA-MA785G-UD3H & I have a liquid cooler that keeps my temps at 37 idle and around 44 on normal use.

To check how many cores you're currently using, look in CPU-Z at the bottom right.

And to stabilize you might need to add some more CPU voltage. I have found that adding a little NB voltage will help sometimes too, but don't touch that unless you have to

Its says 4-cores at the CPU-Z

I'll add some voltage to the CPU and see if I can get to watch movies online.

Lifeline, you can also try playing with the "ACC" feature (ie. +/- 2% to each core). Typically these few things can help stability. If that doesn't help and if the voltage increase doesn't help then you may have a faulty quad-core.

Good luck buddy
