I haven't seen a thread like this so I decided to make one. This will be a thread to discuss the phenom II x2 550: overclocking, unlocking cores, general discussion, etc... I will make a spreadsheet on google spreadsheets of overclocks achieved and give someone else permission to edit it if they want to help.

If submitting an overclock, please include the following (this order would help too for organization):
Clock speed
FSB x Multi
Vcore
RAM speed
NB speed
HT Link
Motherboard
Cooling method

CPU-Z validation would also be nice.

vnv727 is now helping with the chart. Thanks to him very much! I am no longer updating this, PM me if you would like to be able to edit it on google docs along with vnv727.
Unofficial Phenom II x2 550 Club!

Well these are quad's with two cores disabled, they will take 1.6v just as good as a quad, but with two less cores they will not need it.

No, you can't. nForce motherboards don't have a real form of ACC.

I think some other user did this by enabling NCC (nvidia's form of ACC).
