Need help unlocking!!!!!!!! - Page 4

post #31 of 34
I tried unlocking my X2 560 and my MSI 870A-G54 will unlock all 4 cores but the moment I get to the Windows 7 Start screen it will blue screen. I have a CoolIT Vantage watercooler so that will keep my CPU nice and cold and I also have both top fans in my Silverstone case acting as intake. That way I can get some cool air blowing over the MOSFETS and hopefully keep them from exploding! I have been able to run my X2 as a tri-core without having to raise any voltages but I still wanna see if I can get that 4th core working. I have set CPU-NB Ratio and HT Link Speed to x8, as recommended by MSI, but that didn't work. I also have 1600MHz Corsair RAM. Is that going to be a problem? Also is it just a matter of raising CPU voltage to try and get the 4th core stable? What's the max voltage I should try?

MOSFET cooling won't do anything for safety on that board. I have seen a situation where someone with this board and running the x4 955 at stock, the board exploded the moment the PC was turned on for the first time.

Is there any correlation between serial numbers and exploding boards? Maybe the ones that had problems were from the earlier batches and that the newer built boards are using better MOSFETs?

I'm not too sure, this problem seems to be widespread on all those MSI boards regardles... only the 2 new 2011 boards are getting closer to decent (890FXA-GD65 and 870 Fuzion Power) with 8+2 phases
