My temps are pretty stable, something around 37C idle and max 54C load with my S-1283, but I did try to get it further, but it BSODs at boot, whether I add vcore or raise my RAM's timings.
I don't really need more right now, and since my 4870 seemingly *refused* to overclock properly(was stable for 30 minutes on FUR, booted up Polynomial and it black screened, fan'd 100%, so I'm a bit tired of OC'ing right now haha.
3.6 Ghz is pretty great, and the only game that needs it for me is BC2, who runs mighty fine anyway

Hey guys, recently new to this forum, so bear with me.

Currently I am trying to further overclock my x2 550 BE past the current point.
I have managed to get it stable at 3.7Ghz as you can see below



I am having trouble going beyond this. I have managed to boot windows using 18.5 x 206 with CPU Voltage on 1.512 although it crashes a few minutes into prime 95.

I'm not sure if I should be changing other voltages or frequencies, or what the majority of the voltages do as I can't find anything to tell me the exact definitions of what my mobo's terms mean. Here's a link to the manual for my mobo:

http://www.asus.com.au/product.aspx?...KnW&templete=2

On another note, I have noticed that ALL core unlockes I have seen on this chip have been of the "Deneb" codename, where as those that haven't been able to be unlocked (including mine) have been "Callisto". I am thinking that the Deneb models may be the purposely downgraded non faulty versions? Also, all unlocks I have seen on this mobo have been performed on BIOS version 1402. Can anyone confirm this? And if so, would one have more chance of success unlocking using this BIOS version?

Cheers guys, hoping someone can help me push this chip further.

How likely is it that my board/PSU is the reason I cannot unlock the extra two cores on my 550BE? I almost want to give it another shot with a new setup.. but I'm not sure if it would be worth it or not.

did you try upping the voltage a bit? its not always a guarantee to unlock, some get lucky and can either have a fully stable x3/x4 and other dont

now for my contribution, phenom II x2 550be unlocked to a x4 b50 running stable at 3.5ghz

Yup.. all the way up to 1.5V at stock clocks. Briefly tried to unlock as a Tri-core but I don't know if I was doing that right with all the per-core/all cores jazz. I want a wonder chip lol

set ACC to hybrid and all cores to auto, if your voltage is that high and you arent stable then it may simply be that you didnt get a lucky chip
