Thread Starter 
Ok so ive been trying to hit 3.0 ghz from 2.8 on my amd phenom II x3. Ive enabled unleashing mode, so theres now 4 cores.

From what i understand i would jsut need to increase performance %'age. But idk, maybe im doing it wrong.

Heres some pics of my bios, hope they can help.




EDIT Specs : M4A79XTD Evo ~ AMD Phenom II x4 70 2.8ghz ~ XFX HD 5770 ~ 8gb Corsair XMS3 ~ 1.64tb WD ~ 650w Antec Earthwatts

Your bios should be the same as mine :
0k, put your ACC on auto. I see CnQ is off, good. I'm not positive but i think virtual machine should be disabled.
Now go to jumperfree configuration tab. Set your multiplier to 15 for your 3.0
And what is an x4 70 ? I thought the last x3 was a 740. If you do have a 720, you can do 3.2 minimum with no additional voltage.
While you're in there, you can raise your NB multi to 13.

post some cpu-z shots!

His 4th core could be unstable.

but he doesnt say if he's been successful or not. i think he is only trying to use tweak percentages to overclock which isnt going to do much at all. 1 reason i asked for cpu-z and hwmon.
while you're at it Spunky, it would be good to fill in your system specs in the control panel, a.k.a. user cp.
to ease dixon's mind and clear it up, did you run prime95 after unlocking and before attempting an overclock ?

Theres my CPU-Z pics, i havent messed with it yet. I filles out my system specs in teh CP, its a phenom 2 x3 720


EDIT Did what you said and it got me to 3.0ghz, Thanks you =D. I didnt raise NB to 13.. cause it was all these different voltage settings, and 13 wasnt any of them so i just left it.



Thanks again!
