updated to the November BIOS on an Asus M4A77TD PRO kept it stable, now experimenting with overclocking.

TA790GXE 128M

I have one coming in the mail, and there is a modded bios for it. If my CPU is unlockable I will be sure to post.

getting the new GA-770TA-UD3 motherboard, no one seems to have even used this motherboard(no reviews atleast) i will see if it can unlock, but not test for stability. instead i will just say if it unlocked, i dont wanna burn out my cpu with the crap stock they pull from their bargain bin

Ok, have been working on unlocking my 550, but having some issues. It unlocks and makes to windows and I ran prime95 for an hour with no errors and intended to run it overnight to check true stability. Well, before I got there I checked the windows event logs and I am getting cache hierarchy errors from my processor core every minute (on the dot). Does this mean that my cores are simply bad or is there anything else I can do about it? Tried lowering my clocks to 2500ghz and bumping voltage to 3.75 but it did not fix the issue.

I'd like to run em overnight on prime, but I don't want to do that if the event log errors mean core won't be good and just have errors piling up that will corrupt my OS.

Oh, and the errors go away when I run it as the dual core, so it is something with the unlocking. I am using the 506 BIOS for my MB, which is the most recent.

Thanks

Successful unlock on Biostar TA790GXBE(stock bios).

Set ACC to auto and HT to 1.6Ghz, and its worked perfectly.

Now, i'm running torture test with various Voltage/frequency setting for both CPU core and NB. My stock cpu settings are

vcore 1.325
freq. 3.1Ghz
vNB 1.15v
freq 2Ghz
bios official 78DGA902

Running stock cooler, temperature is bit high i think, thinking of getting aftermarket cooler. i'm looking for cheap <20$ cooler, any suggestion?


EDIT:

CPUz validation:



Also did some test my friend's 550BE, unlock failed with my stock bios didn't try to test modded bios. But my friend was able to unlock 3-core running at 3.4Ghz//1.32v, using modded bios on Biostar ta785ge 128M.

PPS should i switch to "disabled" acc?
Not too sure about your motherboard, but for mine Gigabyte has released a new version of the BIOS which has a "Core Enable" option in the same menu as EC firmware. You will be able to select which cores you want to disable/enable. You can try to enable "Core 2" and disable "Core 3" and see if your computer will boot properly. If it doesn't, try to disable "Core 2" and enable "Core 3". You might be able to get a tri-core out of your dual-core processor. The core numbering system starts from "0".

@3.6GHz running good for over an hour already...
I tried overclocking up to 3.9GHz on dual core mode and proven stable with 1.4v vcore.
I'll try to push it up on unlocked mode later.

this Cougar psu really rocks! XD

Congrats to both of you. If it isn't a bother, can you download CPU-Z and quickly post a screenshot containing both the main tab and the motherboard tab? A sample of the image that I would like is located in the original post.

Cooler recommendations can be found on the original post. <$20 is pushing it. Scrape up another $10 dollars in loose change to get one of the recommended choices.

Don't worry, 500 watts is plenty for your rig. Especially with your low-end GPU.
