i disabled CnQ, set core activation to auto/manual

You ended up with a processor that can't unlock. Unlocking is not guaranteed you know?

Sounds like the CPU won't unlock to a quad. You should try to get a tricore by testing each other core separately. Every board I've seen let's you manually select cores for ACC use.

This.
For example, mine can unlock and POST as an X4 but fails Prime95 almost immediately.

i am hopefully assuming that it could be related to bios version

I just purchased a Phenom II 555 BE (HDZ555WFK2DGM) from CanadaComputers.com (in Feb 2011) with the hopes of unlocking it. Sure enough, i was a lucky one and I have 4 stable cores. I ran the Prime95 for a few hours with no issues.

Im using an M4A88TD-M mother board with factory BIOS. I took a photo of my CPU before i installed it, it read.

AMD Phenom II
HDZ555WFK2DGM
CACDC AC 1048FPM
9M70843L00781

I hope this helps, I was looking all over the internet for specific information like this before i bought the chip but couldnt find anything.

Its luck of the draw. Some unlock and some don't. Theres no way to tell which will unlock and which won't. BTW TDP80, thats the same mobo I have that I unlocked my 555 with.
post #10 of 10


NOT EVERY X2 OR X3 WILL UNLOCK AND/OR OC TO 4GHz STABLE! Seriously. We need to stop letting this myth be perpetuated.

OP: It doesn't matter the batch number iirc because even within the same batch there will be variations across the chips.
