Ok, I realized that the BIOS does not pick up the name of the CPU either, it says the same thing "AMD Processor model unknown". I went ahead and enabled ACC and only put it on Auto and it unlocked all 4 cores and booted into windows. It now shows up as it should when all 4 cores are unlocked, "AMD Phenom II X4 B50 Processor".
I haven't ran any stability tests yet or OC'ing. I will post back after I do some tests. It was running 27c Idle on two cores and now with x4 it isn't much different. I understand that the core sensors will not work when unlocked, but the other one(motherboard?) is still reading and showing pretty low, will put some load on it and post back
Edit: Temps according to the MB sensor with all 4 cores going.
Prime95: 59c max, 56avg @45 minutes into Blend testing.
Prime95 is still running, but I think it's safe to say I have a successful unlock after almost an hour of running? Do those temps sound bad going by the Motherboard Sensor? It was only reading about 49-52 @X2 using actual core temps. I think the MB sensor reads higher than the actual core temps, but maybe it's just extra heat from the 2 extra cores. You think I'd be ok to start OC'ing a little after an hour or 2 of prime?Edited by Strat79 - 12/3/09 at 3:27pm
