Help in turning a p2 965 c3 x4 into a x2

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,
Not too clued upon this so would be very gratefull of some help.
The reason for wanting to turn the x4 into a x2 is to see if i can reach a higher oc as i'm enjoying Dolphin wii emulator that only uses 2 cores but i could do with abit more than 4ghz@1.456v, anything more as a x4 will crash, prime gives me temps of around 35/40c using nh-d14 air cooler , getting 4.2 or higher would give me about an extra 10+ fps which is very much needed in some games.
Am using my sig rig for this.
I know i have to dissable the cores from within the bios but does it matter what cores are disabled, can i pick and choose between any of the cores just incase 2 oc better than the other 2?
Am hoping for a higher oc using 2 cores rather than 4, maybe lower temps will benifit me ect.

I find it hard to believe that the oc of your cpu would give you the fps increase. I would try to oc the vid. card
