That is great news! I'm glad it worked with a older bios version
Good luck guys
Just to clarify it's actually their newest bios that did it
Roland, the new F5 beta bios seems like it should add the same functionality as the F9 I just tried, but it's a bit complicated to get working. I'll list out the steps I had to take for you:
1. Flash the new bios and boot with optimized defaults
2. Reboot and set acc to hybrid and leave all cores on auto (I suggest just leave it at stock clocks)
3. Reboot and in the acc menu their should now be an option for enabling/disabling cores 2 and 3 (which remeber are the 3rd and 4th cores), disable the one you're having trouble with or just trial and error it.
Win7 should detect the cpu as an AMD Athlon II X3 450, so depending on what version of win7 you have it might decide to invalidate your key
Good luck with everything!Edited by crysisanity - 11/29/09 at 4:09pm
