Any recommendations if it is worth it for me to try and overclock to increase performance?
Follow the advice above...you may yet be able to unlock it, though xd doesn't seem to think the VRM's would handle it.

However, if it won't unlock, then by all means overclock the bageezus out of that thing! There's a reason it has an unlocked multiplier.

70% chance of unlock so you never know if you are going to be in that 70% or the 30% that could not unlock. It's a crap shoot. I got lucky. I set the HT Link Speed to 1600 and it booted right up. Had to raise the CPU-NB voltage up to 1.22.

Upping the core voltage is in itself passing 125W. Never run ANY 3+1 phase on a 125W processor. There's a reason ASUS and Gigabyte, despite being quality board manufacturers, rate their 3+1 boards 95W only.

Sweet, thanks for the info. I will try this again by raisimng my core volt and cpu nb volt. I hear people talk about lowering the multiplier. What does that do?

I'm not sure what cpu cooler I have, I got it at Fry's for $20.

Still no luck. I'm going to give up for now on unlocking the extra coors and try to overclock. Thanks for the help!

Psst, Gigabyte rates their 3+1 boards as 140w . This is why mine caught fire with a 95w chip at stock.

And can I haz more coors please? My fridge is empty .

What are you talking about? Before correcting ANYONE on ANYTHING. Get your facts straight.

Also, I am pretty sure he said he had an AMD Phen. II x2 processor. I have no idea were you got "duo", this is the AMD section not Intel buddy.


Further more. YOU CAN unlock your cores, if your motherboard supports core unlocking. I would start off my googleing, "Does __________ motherboard support core unlocking?" Btw, usually newegg will tell you if it supports core unlocking or not..

Go into your bios, and look for a setting called "Core Unlocking". I am not too sure about your Bios Star mobo, but in my Asus bios, theres an "advanced" tab, and under that tab there is a option called "Core Unlocking".

If you have trouble from there, just post back and I will try to help you with a more in depth method to finding the unlocking core option.



Hopefully I helped!



Edit: After reading others posts, it seems they have done some research on the board, and it has a 3+1 on it.. You might not want to unlock cores on a 3+1 power board. I am pretty sure if you went quad it would be a 125w ish CPU... Thats definitely a no go..
