I didn't mess with the NB frequency at all left it on auto. Though i think i remember seeing someone say try setting the HT to 1800mghz instead of 2000mghz. Never tried that will give it a shot. doubt it will work (my luck sucks! haha) I did try all 4 cores @ +2% no luck there. I'm gonna keep toying with it gives me something to do. If I cannot get the 4th core stable i'll move on to running 3 cores and seeing how high I can overclock running that stable. My last CPU was a Athlon 64 x2 6400+ so for a $100 this was worthy upgrade.

@STRAT79, when you do get your stuff from newegg would love to know what stepping your chip was from them. Just curious if it is the same as mine i just got form them or a different stepping. Seen people had success unlocking all 4 cores and getting stable with older steppings and can't find much info if any at all with the stepping my cpu has.

Will do. Soon as it's out of the box I will post the steppings then later what kind of results I had. I'm off to bed. Good luck with it

Edit: Does the Stock HSF come with any form of thermal grease? Or should I be looking into getting some AS5 or something? I don't need anything great, just wondering if it came with anything at all. I'm assuming just some generic TIM piece of trash?

Good luck
Some of these are based on Propus and some are based on Deneb. Look here: http://www.insidehw.com/Reviews/CPU/...30/Page-2.html
But i think the unlocking rate is lower than 550.

Let us know if that is available in your bios.

Good luck
thx dude yeah i unlocked the other 2 cores with no problem now its there a way to overclock it?

The waiting is driving me crazy. That's the drawback of ordering on pre-Black Friday sales, you have to wait for no holiday and Sunday shipping. 5 days, if I'm lucky, are going to seem like an eternity. I feel like I'm a kid again, having to wait to open Christmas presents when they have been sitting there staring you in the face for a week

Just joined to confirm my unlock with my 550 (didn't write down the stepping though), and hopefully work out a few problems I've been having.

First off I've managed 3.8 Ghz with 4 cores thanks to alot of reading here but i'm by no means finished pushing that.

Second off I'm worried about my PSU not being able to handle my CPU and GPU together, I've noticed my furmark fps average ~180 at 640x480, but drop to around 50 if prime95 is running. That was at stock speeds unlocked, and just seems strange to me.

Are you kidding me?! That Corsair has a lot of power to push that CPU. You're not even running SLI, so I don't think its that close.

Don't be afraid to keep pushing it. But I do hear that these chips do top out at 3.8-4.0, so you might be lucky to get 4.0 but you never know unless you try.

Good luck.

Just double checking really, some of the behavior I've seen just seemed off, I'm trying to diagnose why my 275 is running at half bandwidth too, and I've read that could be a PSU problem lol.

But yeah, I need to rework my whole overclock again, lost all my settings with a bios update and can't find where I wrote em down =P
