Phenom II x2 555 unlock - Page 2

post #11 of 58
run prime95 till it fails,it will tell you what core is faulty,bump the CPU voltage up till prime will run for a couple of hours on blend and small ffts without errors. Stay below 1.5v MAX. if the core is persistantly faulty,lock it up and 3wheel it....
if your dead set on a quad,consider a fan pointing at your mosfets as your cooler will not divert air like the stock unit.

None of which is strictly true...Cores are determined by a binning process,small performance issues determine what clocks ie. 3.2 3.3 etc,these also determine whether it will be a quad or a dual from the same die. All x2 and x4 are the same die so a 3.2 dual will have more small issues than a 3.4 quad,for instance a core is lagging behind the rest or is less stable at higher clocks. Very rare they are actually faulty beyond use..



if in doubt,HIT IT WID DA MEGGA VOLTZ!!


chances are mosfets will die before the proc but mosfets dont die alone......

small black squares to the left of your cpu socket,there will be a larger row of black squares in front of them...just get air to the top left corner of your mobo and you will be good

Call me crazy. but are you running triple channel memory for an i7 in your amd setup..??

Not that it would matter, but try to run just two sticks of ram instead of 3.. Kinda weird to me.. Or get another stick and run 4 sticks..

ouch. " The G.SKILL F3-12800CL9T-6GBNQ Desktop Memory comes in a triple-channel configuration designed specifically for Intel’s new Core i7 processor/X58 chipset-based platforms. " It is, I didn't notice I had it in a combo deal. Is this a problem? It seems to work, should I try returning it?

I did a quick search on it, it doesnt necessarily seem to be an issue. It just doesn't use its full potential. Correct me if I am mistaken
