AMD Athlon II 640 L3 Unlocked - Page 2

post #11 of 24
to unlock the L3 I guess all you need to do is turn ACC on right?

I have 2 640's laying around that I need to check to see if this works.

use HWmonitor and watch the CPU socket temp. when you unlock stuff on CPUs you loose the temp sensor for some reason. its the only downside to unlocking.
i have to use socket temp as well, and its always hotter than the core temp, but its MORE ACCURATE than core temps. keep that in mind.
your stock fan should handle it. just dont attempt a record breaking 7Ghz with it lol.

How do you unlock it? I know for core on phenom, but not for cache on Athlon.

My athlon II x4 640 will be coming friday, so I want to know about it a little.
yeah athlon II X3s and X4s are defective Phenoms with bad L3 cache. of course, some are perfectly good and AMD just locks them to meet the demand.
my 550BE has one defective core, but im not arguing! my 1.2 year old Callisto kicks ass with the extra core!

Although I think 1.406V is an ok Voltage.

Reflex99, if unlocking will break temp sensors why can I still see the cpu temp in Control Center?

because that is socket temp not core temp.

Friendly advice:
Do not OC with this board, it has bad voltage regulation, and it is MSI
Leave it at stock for the safety of your board.
