seems to me that you unlocked the cores as soon as you got the boards/cpu.

Not going to deny it but yes I did. I had proper airflow in a CM692 and even had a Hyper 212+ as cooling. I guess I got what I paid for. It was stable as a quad but it didn't spend much of it's life as one.

I'd blame AMD if I was having problems with my motherboard too.

My power supply isn't that good so I switched electric companies.


The reality of unlocking is you aren't always gonna be lucky. You payed for a dual.

so pretty much, you caused it to fault over. ya know cores are locked for reasons. not all can unlock and be stable forever. my previous phenom did the same thing. i learned to just OC and live with those numbers.

I guess I should move this into the general motherboards section and add motherboards to the title then.
