Also as far as unlocking goes, I enable the ACC and save it, but on boot there are hypertransport sync errors. When I go into the bios to reset it, it shows that the L3 cache is indeed unlocked, but when I unlock it I cannot boot.
There is no L3 cache on Propus, so you can't unlock it.
Some Propus cores are locked Deneb dies, unlocking rules are however the same for L3 cache as with cores; you may or may not find stability and if you do not find stability you must accept it, for unlocking is a bonus only.
This is true, but only the first quads had this - anything you buy new will be a true Propus with no L3 cache. The easiest way to check is to look at the stepping code on the IHS of the CPU. If it says xxCxx, it's a Deneb core. If it says xxDxx, it's a true Propus core and there's no physical L3 cache on the chip.
