Athlon x3 Core unclock help/advice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hey guys

last night i downloaded the latest bios from gigabyte and it added ACC.

i figured what the heck ill try it

turned core unlocker on. increased cpu volt to 1.4 and nb volt to 1.3

booted up, had a phenom x4 with 6MB l3 cache. ran fine for a hour. then i tryed to play SC2 got about 10 mins in and i BSOD . BTW i was running at stock clocks for the test.

after i turned the 4th core off but left the L3 cache and dropped NB v to normal and cpu v to normal.

booted up and i froze a few mins after windows loaded.

after words i returned everything to stock and played SC2 for hours

ehh ive been spoiled by BE chips with everything unlocked so i OC in windows. any ideas for getting the chip stable? it seems like it can be done. thanks for help

NB volt is chipset, increasing that may not be necessary; CPU-NB volt is the IMC & L3 cache and that might help
