HondaGuy, is that the same 550BE you've always had or totally different one?

Remember guys as HondaGuy mentioned it all comes down to the CPU. Don't assume your brand new 550BE is going to unlock 100% of the time. There was a reason why some had two disabled cores

Good luck

Now you know what to look for in the 550 chip and if you are able to buy the 550 at a store where you are able to see the chip and look for the right batch number. but its a gamble, looks like batch number 0922 are more likely to unlock. its a risk..... What to do...

With your 550 should be something like this on the second line.....0921APAW this is my batch number. I find for the 3rd line would start something like 90012, the lower the number also the better overclock. closer to the 90000 is what your looking for....

Like this: off topic here is my 955 chip with lower number on the 3rd line(last 5 numbers you are looking for) I was able to OC the NB to just over 3000Mhz....




how much is your CPU-NB core? I know, CPUs are diferent in producty stepings (my is 0911), but i tried only 2850MHz with +0.325V at CPU-NB....

Hi guys got my new motherboard today and it unlocked

ACC - Hybrid/Auto (-2 all cores)

0924EPMW GA-MA790XT-UD4P - F4 - success


EDIT: I see others have been able to unlock there 550 also with Beta bios for MA790XT-UD4P, bios F4g
Here is that bios: http://www.gigabyte-usa.com/Support/...S&FileID=14617

It all comes down to the chip
Actually thats the bios version I am running now. I'll take a look at the batch # when I get home. I thought it was my motherboard and was going to buying a cheaper board to test. I'll let you know later tonight. Thanks.

That was on my M4A79, my NB volts were @ 1.45 in bios, CPU-NB was +.275

hellfire91: You need some more volts on the NB...also could use some more volts to the CPU

Set the (NBvid to .+100 )for Stock use Up to 3400mhz
ADD more NBvid when you Overclock past 3400mmz
Usually +.200 for above 3600mhz with 2400nb.

I've used F2c with great results, but I don't know if it works with that mobo.

Yeah, anything over 5000 is good for an AMD x4 core.....


On a different matter, can someone tell me what is a recommended temperature (Max) for a unlocked 550?...

Running Prime95 on my 550 @3.7ghz, 1.45v.....its maxing out @58c, im using an Akasa air cooler.

Is this too hot, or should i not worry about it, seeing as Prime95 is about the only thing that will get it upto these temps....

It seems perfectly stable.....but if im doing damage at those temps without realising, i will drop it to 3.5Ghz, 1.40v, which maxes out at 55c.....

For the sake of an extra 200mhz, which would make no real difference in apps and games, id rather not risk it..

What do you guys think.....
