I've read through this thread and the info is great, but I'm still stuck. I have a Gigabyte 870A-UD3 running a AMD Phenom II X2 550BE and using Win7-64. I've made some attempts at trying to unlock more cores, but it won't post when I've made changes and I have to clear CMOS to get back into setup. My bios version is F1 (F2 and F3 are now out) so I'm wondering if that is an issue? The bios (from what I can tell) has a setting called CPU Unlock that needs to be set to true (no EC Firmware setting that I can tell). I've upped the VCore incrementally to 1.45 and no post on any. I tried upping the NB from 1.1 to 1.2 while VCore was at 1.4, but still nothing. Any suggestions? What am I doing wrong, or are my extra cores just bad? This is my first time at this stuff so all the help is appreciated!
