I've not seen this before, but then again I'm no pro. Not sure why you'd want cores clocked at different speeds though :S

Yes. I experimented with this on my unlocked Phenom II 550. Some cores had more headroom than others. Not sure why overclockers don't do this more. Just more tedious testing I guess.

I don't think I have the option in my BIOS. Would if I could though. Half cores running 4.2 and half running 4 would be better than all running 4.

Also you can do that with Amd overclock software

i wish my bios could do that, i know for a fact my 5th core cannot push more than 4.0 without causing system instability. so ive dropped my oc back down to 3.9GHz

Do it with amd overdrive then?
Or use acc and give that one more +%

Ive done it a bit. Just recently started playing around with it. CPU-Z only reads Core 1 so for max validation etc, you can only push that core. But for benching, most of the time for some reason Core 3 is the strongest. So for Super-Pi, you would tell it to run on core 3 only as its a single threaded application.
