Question about AMD cpu

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey, I'm not sure if I should post this here or not, and I can't post in the For Sale/Wanted tread yet.

I just found someone selling an athlon II x3 425 that unlocks the 4th core for $60, and I was wondering if it was a good deal.

Also, someone one another thread told me that it may not unlock for me, just because it unlocked for him.

I have a mobo that will supposedly unlock it. A MSI 770t-c45.

Can anyone help me out?

If it unlocks, it unlocks. Being stable is another story, and is much more system dependent.

I bought my x3 740 Black Edition from newegg canada for ~$100 all inc.

It unlocked to a x4 40, and OCs very well

Well, it's an athlon... fairly outdated at this point, I would recommend at least getting a lower end phenom II

Thanks for all the help guys, but it doesn't matter anymore right now. It was sold.

Thanks again.
