Korak, I may be wrong about the 750a chipset but I believe boards with the SB750 chipset are the only ones that can unlock the disable cores. The ACC (Advanced Clock Calibration) is the feature that allows for this and it's only on the 790 boards. I could be wrong though...Perhaps someone can jump in and confirm.

when i was using my biostar 128m i got 3.1ghz stable as a quad with 1.22v so if anyone has any input on what i might be able to get it would be appreciated.

POST 600!
Contagion, congrats on your 600th post

Let us know how the UD4P goes. I've had my eyes on the 790FX-UD4P for a while.

Good luck

Yeah I'm waiting for my Giggy UD4P as well. I love the BIOS options (much more than the Biostar mobo I have) and the nice cooling in place on the mobo as well. I hope to achieve a higher overclock with UD4P + DDR3 ram.

thlnk3r ...well, I dont mind if its only staying dual core... can´t only wait that if getting solid 3.6GHz - 3.8GHz OC. Thats enough for me and for my computer using.
Im happy already with my 7750BE, but you know, hunger grows , just simply cos I bought that new Noctua cooling, and then find Phenom II x2 550 only 94€uros, so new cooler to new CPU and my friend will buy my "old" 7750BE.

Korak, oh that's always a good deal when you have a friend that can buy one of your old processors .

MrAMD_Fan, wow thank you for informing us about that. I didn't know the Nvidia 8300 chipset was able to unlock the disabled cores. What features in the BIOS did you have to play with? Can you post up a CPU-Z validation link so we can confirm that in fact it works? I thought the SB750 chipset was the only one that could do this.

Good luck

Got the DK installed today, hit 3.8GHz pretty effortlessly. Don't have time to mess with it now, but after work I should be seeing 4.0GHz.

I have my cooler coming in tomorrow but my thermal paste won't be in till next Monday.

Very tempting to mount the cooler over the old thermal paste.

Sleeping Giant, nicely done buddy. How much Vcore did you need for that overclock? Does it pass any quick stress testing?

Good luck

If having only 2 cores working I'll join the AMD 550 BE club.
I've tried everything and nothing works, the best I can get is windows 7 starting and then freezes up, I guess I can live with 3.9 Ghz.
