Max Temp was 58C

I tried disabling LLC but voltage still rises. Is there another way to stop vcore from rising?

NB @ 2.4ghz
NB 1.25v (1.2 is default)

HT 2.0ghz
HT 1.2v (default)

I have CL7 1600mhz ram. I tried to lower the ram speed to 1333mhz and lower vcore but cpu won't stay stable.

Is there anything I can do to run @ 3.6ghz without having to run vcore @ 1.5v?
I have a 740 BE but the fourth core won't unlock on the two different boards I tried. Mine runs fine at 3.7 GHz 1.45v but it's unstable any higher no matter the voltage. I got an incredible deal over Black Friday on it and wish that fourth core had worked. There all gone now and I doubt we'll ever see them for sale again. AMD probably got rid of all of them by now.

4th core unlocked

I run 3.5 @ 1.4v with a 2.4 cpu-nb @ 1.25v, base clock 200.

Needed multiple voltage bumps to raise the cpu or cpu-nb multipliers up from here.

Yours sounds similar, would probably clock higher with the 4th core locked, but that would depend on your intended use.
