I believe you need ACC on the mobo in order to unlock cores. Unfortunately, this can only be found on AMD chipset motherboards.
Sorry

I am using a athlon 64 x2 5400+ cpu on a Crosshair II formula board and i cant OC past 3.08

I had a M2N-e board and i clocked to 3.19 easily before.

If anyone could help that'd be great lol. Maybe some pointers on OC cause all i was changing was the FSB speed and multipier i need help with voltages and what not.

I flashed the bios to the most recent version 2202 and still have that problem.

I ended up Just using the AI Overclock in the bios to 10% but i would like to OC my cpu to around 3.3 3.4ghz

hi, nice to see some fellow crosshair owners lol im planning on upgrading my 9950 to a phenom II 965 and swapping my ram out for 1066mhz stuff (2x2gb sticks)
Just wanted to know if i'll be ok on my current bios and what u guys would suggest for the ram, ive heard certain brands can be dodgy on this board.
Anyway the board has worked 100% since day 1 and if your interested here is a few pics of my build. It started off as a crosshair 1, 6400BE & a zalman and you can see it sort of progress in the pics. I had to modify the case a bit to fit the h50 cooler.

Btw it would be nice to see a few more crosshair systems.

It depends on if you get a Phenom II 965 with the C2 or C3 stepping. I would just update your BIOS to the newest 2202. I have attached a copy of it to the first post. That BIOS will cover any new CPU

BTW Nice system.
