Regardless of stability.

Really?

The reason is that unleashing mode Unlocks all the cores not just some of them. So if you have one unstable core then it will fail.

No no no no.....

Say you have a Phenom II x2 555 that unlocks stabily as a quad. In the BIOS it WILL let you have the conbinations 0 1 2, 0 1 3 and 0 1 2 3. However if you try the combination 0 2 3 (or 1st core on, 2nd off, 3rd on, 4th on) it WILL fail. Regardless of the fact that it can unlock stability as a quad, and tri-core in the above working combinations.

I have tested this myself and so far everyone else who has also tried it with a AMI ASUS BIOS has found the same bug.

EDIT: Your sig says you are running a 555 in x3? So I do not understand why you say you cannot select which cores to have with unleashing mode on.

I have Core Unlocking on and Unleashing is off. There is a switch on the mobo for the unleashing and it is off. Unleasing is enable all the cores and you are disable one of the cores, so it is conficting with each other.

AFAIK Unleashing mode IS core unlocking in ASUS AMI BIOSes.

However like I said you can have unleashing mode on and core control on and select which ever combination of cores you want and it WILL work, except for 0,2,3. This is a bug not a conflict, it actually stems from the old ASUS BIOSes where it would only let you select a limited selection of cores (e.g. 0 1 3, 0 1 2 or all 4 on a unlocked x2 to x4).

Can you POST with all 4 cores on? You could test if yourself if you wanted, ignore hardware switches and use the BIOS.

AMI bios-es are not what they once were
Bugs for linux ,bugs as in showing things you don t have ,etc.
It s a bios bug no matter how you explain it .By the way MSI mobos that go for OEMs use Award bios-es not AMI so ... it s a bug.

I don't have to problem, but I'm using the newest bios for my mobo.

My OC is almost identical to yours with the exception of RAM timings. We have almost the same board and the same chip. I noticed your CPU-NB voltage was at 1.2. Is that tested prime stable? I have my CPU-NB at 2800mhz but I've got to use 1.3. At least I've been under the impression that I do. It failed prime and I boosted the CPU-NB voltage a little bit, and then it passed the 8 hour blend test, but I had also been messing with RAM timings...bad idea to do two things at once I know.. Also have you done any linX testing? If so what kind of gigaflops do you get? I've been maxxing out at around 41.5.
