Official Phenom II x2 500 Club! - Page 27

post #261 of 4289
I didn't see the f5 bios in the gigabyte site for my mobo.
The latest one that I see is F4G which was released on 5/22/09 for GA-MA790XT-UD4P.

XDRM, I did some searching on google and didn't find any related articles to that specific question. I'm not entirely sure if the dual-core optimizer is required for the 550BE. Have you tried installing it to see if it adds stability/performance differences?

LiLBlueNinja, I think the latest bios on Gigabytes website removes the ability to unlock the disable cores. Can't exactly remember which bios was the right one to get . Richierich1212 may be correct on the F5 bios. If you can't find it on the website then GA probably already removed it.

Good luck

Dual core optimizer is not needed. The only x2's that need it are anything before kuma (not including kuma), like brisbanes.

Dopamin3, thank you for clarifying. I guess that makes sense (only for X2's)

I was under the impression that Gigabyte was one of the only companies who didn't care about AMD influencing companies to remove unlocking bios'

Anyway, it is indeed the F5 bios, im using F5a right now..

Edit: just checked gigabyte's website.

The GA-MA790X UD4P does still have F5 bios available..

...while the GA-MA790XT UD4P only has F4

The X is AM2+ while the XT is AM3..

Don't know why the XT doesn't have the F5 bios yet.

I know a few companies are doing this. I saw an Asus board with an "Unleashed mode" to unlock cores, I think it was a Crosshair III. MSI has a whole bunch of bioses that are going to come out to support core unlocking. Pretty much all DFI boards can do it. Biostar can do it. I hope manufacturers continue to release bios updates including the ACC unlocking.

I am curious as to why gigabyte has ACC supported on the AM2+ board, but not on the AM3. Oh well, I'm glad I'm using the AM2+ version of the UD4P lol

I wonder if Gigabyte might be doing that to insure stability..... not as many RMAs? Just guessing....

Found out that I have two fully disabled cores, that's why I couldn't get them to unlock. I did manage to get a stable 3.6GHz on stock volts and air (35° idle and 43° load), and my DK is on the way. 4.0GHz should be a breeze with this chip.
