Diablosinc, the weird incorrect readings might be due to the bios being outdated? I figured that is probably why it reads as, "unknown processor" and naturally cpu-z probably doesn't know what to do. Great job on getting your overclocks stable!

Kylton, glad I could be of some assistance

MrAMD_Fan, no you are completely correct. I have noticed the same issue as well. It seems to only occur when all four cores have been unlocked. Hard to say if it's a software or hardware related...for all we know it could be a combination of both.

Good luck

actually, the latest bios for my board is on there, but it didn't add any new processor support. the prior update was the one to address am3 compatibility, however it predates the release of the 550, and the 550 doesn't appear on the latest compatibility chart either.
this has always been rather a crap board. had trouble breaking 3ghz with my old 5kBE brissie. even still...for such a crap board to run this chip with stock volts at 3.6ghz, well...lets just say i'm salivating for what i'll be able to do with a giggy 770 and some ddr3!!!

question...the PSU in my sig, is it going to be enough for a potentially unlocked quaddie? i'm not mister gamer, so i've no power sucking graphics card to worry over, but i do run 4 hdd, a dvd burner, and quite a few fans (though i think i'll save on fan power with my forthcoming xclio coolbox, though it'll still be 3x 180mm and one 120mm).
so before i go for that xclio, or even try to unlock to quad, should i be looking into a PSU?

Diablosinc, your Rosewill RG530-2 530W should be able to power everything completely fine. 12volt amperage wise you have around 41amps. That should be enough for four hard drives and a quad core processor. If you were running a video card then I may second guess my suggestion

Good luck

well, i'm running a video card, but somehow i think an old radeon x1650 isn't going to really penalize me, power wise. i do plan to step up to, say, a 4650 or 4670, but again...i'm not mister gamer, so i don't need much beyond that. and should i find i need a bigger PSU, well...i've had my eye on that corsair for a while now...

Diablosinc, which Corsair model did you have your eye on? They carry some great power supplies (Seasonic, Channel Well Technology). Good stuff

Diablosinc, absolutely, it's an excellent product. The Corsair 750TX is manufactured by CWT. The price on Newegg is nice as well...can't beat the free shipping. Here's an excellent review of this power supply from Jonny Guru: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...=Story&reid=73.

Good luck

Working on that now...currently I am at 3.3 w/ 1.2v (a -.075v drop from stock in my bios)...and it's passed a 5 hour prime, so that's good enough for me. I am going to try lower, but now that it's really late here, and it's finally cold enough in my hot house, I am going to push a 4.0 run for fun...
