Depends on your processor. Each one is different, some will do lower voltages than others.

Is your 4th Core a Dud too? =/
I tried Unlocking the 4th, PSU refused to turn on, had to reset BIOS to get it working again, Wouldnt even show POST.

yep. no luck here. And with this board all I need is to turn on 1 switch to unlock it. Oh well...I know what I was buying...If I needed more powerfull precesor I would go 4 i5-750.

I wished my 4th core worked as well, but my Phenom II X4 B45 with 3 Core and L3 Cache @ 3.9GHz is good enough for me for 24/7 stable @ 1.4V

Got it up to 3.99GHz stable but scaled it back as I don't really need all the power...
post #349 of 583
Guys i also have a Athlon II x3 BUT am using it as a Quad at 3.4 ghz at stock volts(can raise it up but dont like things to get too hot).

Using just my Tri I got it to 3.8ghz at 1.45 volts. May try to get 4 LOL, maybe not.
