Yes, try to hold under 60C and you'll be ok. Mine is around 45-50 in games (ambient is 25-30C). Cooler is Alpenföhn Brocken push pull.

now i got very confused!!!!! my mobo msi 785gm-e53...

cpunb voltage min 0.950 max 2.071 (starts at 1.352v)
nb voltage 0.952 max 1.352 starts at 1.16

which one do i have to increase? dumb.. i used to increase nb voltage instead of cpu-nb.. cus I tried to bump my cpu-nb to 2600 but when it came to voltage adjustment.. I was like what?! the max is 1.352V!
so i must be doing something wrong

New member here. Bought a 555 today at Microcenter for $85 along with a $29 Cooler Master Hyper 212 cooler. Tried to unlock it and failed miserably! Wouldnt even send a signal to the monitor!

So I reset the CMOS and got to overclocking 2 core style. Wasnt hard to hit 4.014 GHz with 1.45 Vcore. Did 223 FSB and 18 multplier. Temps are in the mid 30's under Prime95 so Im pretty happy.

Performance is an improvement over my old Athlon II X3 435 @ 3.4 but not as big a one as Id hoped for. Oh well, at least I have a 4 gig overclock now.

YOU are IN.

Nice O/C. However, What is that 100+ temperatures? Your GPU?



================

MacLeod - Can you get it to boot with three cores?

I dont think I can pick 3 cores. My board is SB710 with ACC so my only option is Disabled or Auto. I think its all or nothing as far as I can tell but not only will it not boot, I have to reset the CMOS to even get back into the BIOS screen! It wont even turn the monitor on.

I was able to unlock the 4th core on my previous Athlon II X3 435 and it ran but it was slower than when unlocked. Im 0 for 2 in unlockable CPU's with functioning cores.

Thats ok I guess. I only use my rig for gaming and internet so I dont really need 4 core. Id rather have 2 cores at 4 GHz than 4 cores at 3.8 GHz. Looks better in the sig.

Have you made sure you have the very latest BIOS? Newer BIOS' sometimes have more/better Unlocking options. ACC will usually be Disabled/Enabled/Special, but there should be a setting nearby (Core Unlock) that's set to auto, that can be changed to manual, then a new list with four cores and -2% or something similar next to them, that's how you then select your cores.

I have SB710 aswell, you should have something to change the cores from Auto to Manual. That way, with a third core, you'll have a bit more of a visible difference you were looking for between your Athlon and this.

Also, some unlocks require a Vcore of high 1.4's to even as high as 1.5v just to unlock successfully, but you'll likely see a higher OC if you're able to get a tri-core than a quad.

[EDIT: Also, depending on how high you're able to push it if you're able to get the third unlocked and OC'd successfully, you're clock as an x2 will be awesome for gaming, and use the x3 when multitasking.

Saying that, I aint even tried to see how high mine OC's as an x2, waiting on my PSU before I OC it any further as an x4 or anything at all, and before I officially ask to join here at last.

So, i recently installed my X2 II 550, and overclocked it to 4.01 GHz @1.55v, and ran SuperPI, scored 17.611s on 1M calculation, but i still haven't stress tested it with P95.
Anyway, is 1.55v safe for 24/7 operation for the 550?

I do have the latest BIOS now. When I first installed the 555 the BIOS didnt recognize it so I updated to the newest version (1.60). I didnt see anything about core unlock but Ill look thru it again, maybe I missed it.

1.55 is higher than I would go comfortably. I have a mental block at 1.5 but if your temps are good and the system is stable, I would think its ok.
