Athlon II X2 255 core unlocking?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, is it possible to unlock the other 2 cores on this chip with my motherboard?

It has "Advanced Clock Calibration" but nothing happens when I put "All cores"

Does this mean it wont unlock?

I don't think it can't be done because it was meant for the phenom II x2 or x3.I'm not sure if the athlon II x2 is an athlon II x4 with defective or unstable cores.

i dont think the athlon X2 series can unlock. i know the athlon II x3 435 can unlock L3 cache and all cores but thats all i know about the athlon series.
you should have got the athlon II X3 435! it unlocks cores and L3 cache!!!
or get a phenom II X2 or X3 to quad core or the upcoming 9xxT series. they unlock to 6 core.

The 435's also overclock like absolute dogs. Hands down the worst amd chip I have ever had

Athlon II X2 255 is not a quad core with two cores deactivated, like a Phenom II X2, so you can't unlock. It really only has two cores.
