im not going to lie and make fun of me if you please LOL but i dont know what in the bois. kind of my first real rig. never done any type of overclocking or anything in the past
I just got me a 550BE, tried unlocking with Asus M4A785TD-V EVO and the lastest BIOS version.
Unlocks to 4 cores, shown as X4 B50 in POST. Boot into windows with no problems and see all four cores.
However when i run Prime95 it says there CPU0 has errors.
The other cores (CPU1,CPU2,CPU3) run fine without errors.
When I disable the unlocking and try prime95, it report no errors in both CPU0 and CPU1.
This motherboard could disable individual cores as it has "enable CPU0-1-2" and "enable CPU0-1-3" thus disabling the other core.
Here is the problem, the defective core is registered and shown as CPU0 in prime95 and there is no option disabling CPU0, only either CPU2 or CPU3.
Tried disabling CPU3 and CPU4, same result.
What can I do about this? What's causing this?
i'm using phII x2 550BE and oc to 3.44(215x16 multiplier).. with motherboard asus m4a77td-pro.. and my bios version is 1102..
when i try unlocking the others core.. for the first time it being ok..
but after i restart.. the bios told me that unleashing mode failure..
why..?? does anybody have idea with my problem..??
