well got the rig together (finally). it's looking like medusa with wires everywhere but i am taking things in and out of the rig so it's a mess:
i have 3 phenom II 555s in my room... and NONE of them unlocked extra cores... gosh damn. ***. so i have 3 dual cores. not the end of the world but i cried a little that night.
right now i don't even have the heatsink (212+ hyper) bolted down, it's just sitting with gravity on the cpu. but this thing is cool as ice @ 4.2ghz which is pretty impressive to me. voltage is 1.428 and temperature is 29C with both cores at 100% stress with prime 95. this thing is stable under prime95.
my set up:
cooler master hyper 212+
555 BE (on 2 cores)
GTX 460 768mb
mushkin silverline 1333 (place holder)
samsung F3 1tb
windows 7 64 professional
impressed with how the 2 cores of the 555 are doing, but saddened by it not unlocking. yin and yang. i will post stepping numbers of all 3 processors later tonight.
CACAC AC 1041EPMW: 2 cores
CACDC AC 10528PM: 2 cores
CACDC AC 10528pM: 2 coresEdited by Spicy61 - 1/21/11 at 9:32pm
