Official Phenom II x2 500 Club! - Page 90

post #891 of 4289
has anyone ever unlocked these to a tri-core? because in the bios it gives me the option to "force tri-core"

which i've never seen before, but i have to do some setting changes and other things to get that options in the bios, its weird. kinda interesting though. I'll mess with it more tomorrow and see if i cant get it to run on tri or quad successfully!

You are also on stock cooling. I wouldn't go above 3.6 with the stock cooler. Getting a better cooler (Xigmatek Dark Knight or Sythe Mugen 2) would cool your CPU and allow for higher, safer overclocks.

Well, i rolled back my BIOS, and success! Sitting at 3.6Ghz on stock voltage with 4 cores.

I've looked on kingston website and it says to have timings of 5-5-5-18 at 2.2V but i've changed them once before and my pc didnt boot up. so im pretty much baffled about it.
Tonicblazer, my apologizes. I was going off your cpu-z validation and it said "6400" so I had assumed you were running DDR2-800 memory. If in fact this is DDR-1066 memory then you should be fine with where you're at. The memory should be capable of 533Mhz+.

In order to run dual channel memory you will need two sticks of memory. It's preferable that the two sticks of memory are the same make/model (same sub-timings, voltages, frequency ect).

Hey guys, im thinking of buying this chip, if my board supports it, how likely is it that i could unlock all 4 cores, and it would be stable at 3.1ghz(stock) speed? Cheers

hi dopdamine....it would be good if they submit the stepping printed on the cpu to see which model unlocks the best...

FOR eg//"0925APMW" or "0924BPMW "

the 09 refers to 2009 and 24/25 means the week that was made in (24th week)
but not too sure about the letters

EDIT:also how do i join clubs such as this one??
