Because the worlds most powerful search engine basically tells me that AMD doesn't want me to know what ACC does.

Basically +% is a higher overclock, while -% is more power efficient or something?

What exactly does increasing it do to help with overclocking? Does it make it more stable? How much of an increase do I need? Will it help fix IMC problems?

I'm not sure about what overclocking benefits it yields, but it can be used to unlock cores, like with your CPU. And it stands for "advanced clock calibration".

Ahh, yes, I forgot to mention the famous core unlocking that has made me quite happy.

I'm aware of what ACC stands for
. I'm beginning to think the % doesn't matter and AMD is just messing with us when really it's just a core unlocking utility.

I'd be sad. >_>

If you enter the right sequence of ACC values, on a full moon night, in winter, outside, and naked, you can OC the CPU to 20Ghz.

I KNEW IT.

I'm actually hypothesizing that increasing ACC lowers the number of cycles per clock, so theoretically a 4GHZ CPU with +10% ACC would run exactly the same as a 3.9GHz CPU with 0% ACC. Those numbers are off the top of my head, and most likely incorrect.

I like my version better...
If only if we could get a girl to try it...

Enter

%Forward, Back, Forward, Back, Kick, Kick, Punch

And it will unlock four more secret hidden cores as well as over 9000! kb of additional L3 cache for epic performance.

ITs Over 9000!
So it is true, AMD is better.

But I don't have an L3 cache!

FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

But seriously. Any ideas?

ACC stands for the Atlantic Coast Conference. It's one of the major BCS (Bowl Championship Series) conferences in college sports.

Over 9000 GHz, bring on the flames!

I was talking about doing it without a heat sink (Teh magic values lower power compsunsion to 1 watt)

I thought you hit "up up down down left right left right b a" and you got and extra .30 Vcore to OC and actually beat the game.....

I'm interested to find out the answer as well. +Rep to anyone who has an actual answer.

It is a simple idiot proof tool for newbs. Don't use do more advanced yourself. This is OCN not newb.com?

Edit: Oh do I run ganged or unganged? Gotta love AMD.

i too am curious as to what the #s really mean. They do affect the stability and performance as I've been playing around with the values on my system.

not knowing what i was really doing, i heard of some 1 in a million Athlon 7750s could be unlocked to 4 cores. putting the proc at 0,0,-2,-2 (arbitrary) rendered my system essentially unusable in Windows (though it didnt technically freeze).

I set it to -2,0,0,0 cause i've read that some say its clock skewing..oh wells. @ 3.24 GHz with this setting along with "hybrid" under EC Firmware. currently stress testing. I did BSOD after 1.5hrs but i upped the voltages so we'll see how it goes now.

i've read putting -#s will somehow affect the speed of the individual core. By what means i have no idea. But i do notice now the first core completes interations faster than core #2, where as when ACC was disabled core 2 would be faster. who knows.
