Stock multiplier on the hypertransport so its at 2350 right now do think dropping the multi on it would let me get higher CPU clocks maybe? The really funny thing is when I enable ACC my mother board main temp sensor stops working and most temp monitoring programs report a -128c temperature. The second and fourth cores are by far the most unstable they are always the first to fail and usually go out at the same time that would be 1 and 3 respectively.
Have you tried fine-tuning that, by lowering the VCore and upping the CPU-NB/NB Voltages a little?
Keep the HT at around 2000MHz if possible, deviations are okay, but you end up losing performance or run into stability issues when raising it too much.
NB Overclocking is highly recommended though.
When you unlock any cores, you'll immediately lose the Core
Temperatures, either a static number or 0c is usually shown. You need to use CPU
Temp to gauge your actual Temperatures, regardless of locked or unlocked, as CPU Temp is the sensor AMD uses in their threshold limitations.
AFAIK, I've always had a -128c reading somewhere also.
In ACC, there should also me a Manual Core Control
Option, wherein you can +1/+2 etc your cores, I believe adding +2 to your lacking cores may help.
(+ helps push for a higher stable OC, - helps get a lower voltage IIRC).pc-illiterate
is correct, around 3.5GHz is the sweet-spot with unlocked chips (I run mine at 3.5GHz with a 2500NB and 2000HT 24/7), usually you can get around 1.4v VCore to run it, when you've messed around with the CPU-NB and RAM etc, so it's not drinking too much juice (shortening it's overall life, which is still long), not getting too hot, and also giving enough power to not really bottleneck a single GPU setup.
