He's only running 1 core. His "high overclock" is garbage. I'll be impressed when I see it with 2 or more cores.

Hi all im getting x2 550 on monday and i would like to try to unlock it.

Is it safe to unlock it and use it with stock cooler (ofc stock speed no overclock)?

Blackbomb, absolutely. If you start to raise the cpu voltage then you may have to purchase a new cooler. At stock voltage you shouldn't have to worry. However I do recommend monitoring the temperatures during stress testing just to be on the safe side.

Let us know if you need help with the unlock/overclocking process.

Good luck

Also, I believe you can hit 3.5 or 3.6 with stock voltages. Also yes, watch the temperatures as well.

Ok, finally got my 550BE and mobo in today. The CPU stepping is CACY AC 0922CPMW. The motherboard came with the bios version of 080014 dated 01/13/2009. From what I have read, this is about the best bios to unlock with for this board. I haven't tried to OC or unlock yet, as I just now got it put in and booted up.

The problem is, the CPU shows up as "AMD Processor model unknown" in Windows 7. It shows the same in CPU-Z under "Specification" but under "Name" it shows up correctly as AMD Phenom II X2 550BE. CPU-Z also shows 2 cores and 2 threads, just the Specification is listed wrong. Is this normal? Core temp only shows core #0 for temps but shows the frequency of 0 and 1. HWmonitor shows both core temps as well. It seems to run fine, just windows not picking up the name right for some reason.

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.
Idle: 24c
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?

That's quite a difference between idle and load temp. I'd grab an aftermarket cooler if OCing. Try to keep it under 55C. 2 hours of prime and maybe some benchmarks should be enough to give you some indication of stability. You probably want to run prime blend 10-24 hours when you reach a clock speed that you are happy with. I'd update the BIOS too. Perhaps that's the reason your CPU wasn't recognized. But if you read that an older BIOS is better for unlocking/overclocking, that's up to you.
