AMD Athlon II x3 440 UNLOCKING HELP?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I unlocked my AMD Athlon II x3 440 into an AMD Phenom II x4 B40 with much ease.
However I can not read my temps, I heard this was an issue with some others and I was wondering if there was any way to be able to read them.

You should still be able to read your cpu temp, just not individual cores. I unlocked an Athlonx3 to a phenom II x4 Earlier today

Not correct, from my knowledge (unlocked my Phenom II x3 to x4) Once you unlock the 4th core reading temps becomes unavailible for some reason. I made a thread on this about a month back and thats what i was told and i tried various programs but no temp reading was availible.

can you read the temps in bios? i was looking into upgrading my MB to unlock my Phenom II 550 x2 to get my other 2 core. but a lot of times apparently the other locked cores can be faulty or slightly screwed up.

You cannot read core temps on the CPU after unlocking.

BUT amd doesnt care about individual temps, it jsut cares about the CPU temp.

My X3 is running at 52 CPU temp, -10 = 42C per core. CPU temp tends to be 10C hotter.

INTEL however wants each core temp amd does not.

I can read the temps on my x3 unlocked to an x4, but not the individual cores (this is with speed fan and core temp).
When I had unlocked my 140, same thing, I could read a temp, but not the individual cores.
This was on my Gigabyte board, each board will be different.

Yeah I have seen the Athlons reporting temps. My Phenom 550 does not give me any temp data when its unlocked; however my friend is able to get temp data on his Athlon from some software such as easy tune 6 (gigabyte software). I don't believe people were try to troll as I have seen many different out comes from unlocking the extra cores.

Anyways have fun with your new quad and if nothing else I know the bios still reads the temps correct on mine and you can set the alarm there. Granted OCCT and other software won't give you nice charts lol.

Freak out for no reason? I said "from my knowledge (unlocking a Phenom II x3 to and x4) in which case I could not read the temps. you need to calm down, because i wasn't trolling and that picture just shows that you were right, if you calm down and actually read i was only taking knowledge from one CPU and bridging it to another hence why i said "from my knowledge" not with that cpu. please calm down.
