Hi, welcome to the site. You may want to fill out your system specs in the user cp.

Here is the guide on how to unlock the x2 550 chips: http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/53...ing-guide.html

It's fairly easy if you have the right mobo and bios. Not sure if yours will work, almost sure it will though. Try it out and let us know.

Best of luck.

Most stepping should overclock similarly.

1.5v-1.55v is max recommend for on air provided your CPU cooler can handle it. Phenom II likes low temps. Anything over that will probably degrade the life of the chip some more.

2001ODISSEY, perhaps I may be mistaken but only the SB750 chipset is capable of unlocking the "disabled" cores. Can anyone confirm the SB710 has these same capabilities? In regards to overclocking, here are a few guides that I recommend checking out. They explain quite a bit and should be helpful in your journey:

Hello every one I am new to this form, I have unlocked my 550 to 4 cores everything appear OK except for the temperatures at stock settings I have 44'C idle and over 80'C when playing COD2. Computer does not crash a this temps every thing appears stable. Temps via info from Speedfan & CPUID.

Using AC Freezer 64 Pro rather than stock cooler, with cool master paste I would not expect such high temps, I have 80mm rear case fan and 2 side fans one controlled by case sensor. MB is GA-M720-US3, F4 bios, VGA Sparkle GT9600 (stock speeds) Let me know if you need further info. Any advice help would be be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
