Just curious,...you state that bios flash is incompatable, did you have another chip in this board and just swapped it out for the one your using now?
Cool&quiet greyed out- did you install chipset drivers?
hmmmmm!

I thought cnq was more based on the bios and not the drivers of the OS itself? I'll give it a shot of reinstalling chipset drivers.

There was no chip in this puppy before (unless there was when they tested it at the shop). When I got the board they offered a mem/cpu/heatsink put together and test. Alright, it also seems the drivers I'm installing are for an earilier date for some reason. Oh you know what, I wonder if I'm getting the month/year/day backwards. xD

I'll give it another shot.

edit:lol i was selecting the non GTD version. :/ Alright thanks, I'll give this a shot now.

edit2:alrigth, updated bios, latest chipset drivers. cnq and c1e still not accessiable.

also, still same story on unlocking. i can have 1 or 2 cores enabled under the unlocker and it still doesn't load into windows.

Kai, read around a bit, it says that based on cpu margins it might be unstable. I was wondering what are other terms for CPU margins and how do I adjust such settings?

bump. any ideas?

Change CPU voltage mode to offset to adjust your C1E and CnQ. Those should be disable anyways.

offset voltages? Haven't work with that before.

Wonder if C1E and CnQ could be disabled after that. Nice idea, I'll give it a shot in a bit. though cnq is suppose to be disabled after you hit over 3800mhz eh?
edit: alright, tried it, no luck.

okai, weird news.

I have the cores enabled right now, but running in express gate. At first it was all funkay. Ran it again, still funkay. Ran it again, everything seems fine.

Don't really want to try running in the OS yet. xD I wonder if I am actually running 4 cores. Is there a way to check online? Maybe linux has a CPU-Z version for linux (express gate). HMMMM!

edit:i've also contacted asus and we exhausted all possible options on how to unlock cores. However, I'm in express gate right now with 4 cores enabled! eeek!!!!! i think, i don't know for sure, but the switch is turned on and is red showing 4 cores enabled. I wonder if i just "wore"/"broke in" the processor? Testing OS now.

edit2: aklright turns out my cores aren't enabled. ._.

plus asus had no idea why i could run with 1 or 2 cores enabled when the core unlocked was disabled, but once enabled I couldn't.

your chip likely has a defective cache or cache interface for the last 2 cores. if the chip will run in LOCKED mode but wont run unlocked with the last 2 cores shut down, then it is defective cache
