  1. I've had my AMD Phenom X2 550 Black Edition on 3.2ghz and unlocked 4 cores for a LONG time now on STOCK cooling. Ready to make an UPGRADE to a better heatsink. I would really like to see my CPU break +4.0GHZ. THX.
  2. Hello, I just bought the Phenom II x2 555 BE although it should have been a x4 955. The Phenoms on the stores are all out of stock(some phased out) and this x2 555 BE is the only remaining one in stock. As soon as I get over the warranty limit, I'm planning to unlock it. But I wish to know if the PSU and mobo will make it through. Right now I have an unlocked Sempron 140(unlocked to Athlon II x2 4400e) and I've been using this for almost two years. These are the mobo and video card specs Mobo: Biostar A780L v6.1 http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=472#dl VC: AMD Radeon HD 6750 1GB 2GB DDR2 PSU: A generic 600W Now, if I unlocked Phenom II x2 555 Black Edition which I believe results into a Phenom II x4 955, will one of these PSU suffice for the unlocking of 3rd or fourth core? FSP Hexa 500W http://pcx.com.ph/components/power-supplies/fsp-hexa-he500-eff-80-500w.html Antec Neo http://pcx.com.ph/components/power-supplies/antec-neo-eco-520w.html I'm really intrigued by the Assassin's Creed 3. Most people who have high end rigs complain about low fps in Boston but my cousin who has Phenom II x2 555 played it well. He has a GeForce 440 gfx card. Thanks for your time and also, I am open to suggestions. But please understand that I am not that rich to replace everything above I have right now. But am already looking forward to it once I really have the money and if I need to upgrade.
  3. It seems that the Phenom II x2 555 can be unlocked to a Phenom II x4 B65 processor the vid: I have this set-up: Motherboard: Biostar A780L Processor: AMD Sempron 140 unlocked to Athlon II x2 440 Graphix Card: AMD Radeon HD 1GB 6750 RAM: 2GB DDR2 A generic 600W Power supply which I want to replace with a branded FSP Hexa 520W Here is what is shown in cpu-z based on my PC: http://s8.postimage.org/6u4ypgk91/Untitled.png Originally, I am planning to buy a Phenom II x4 955. But I found out that it has been phased out for almost a year now. All I have found so far are Athlon x2 dual cores. I can't believe it. Right now, I have a Sempron unlocked to Athlon II x2 440. So, I though that unlocking Phenom II x2 555 to Phenom II x4 B65 is possible for my mobo provided with the PSU. But I want to hear from you guys especially about safety measures. I am a newbie here but I am aware of the possible consequences that I can face after unlocking. The unlocking of Athlon II x2 440 came from just a video turorial. I hope you understand. If it's not really recommended to unlock it, will the Phenom II x2 555 alone will suffice for playing AC3? I am also staggering for the low fps issue.
  4. How much of an improvement is a FX-8350 over a 955be at stock clocks? does it warrant shelling out 200+ bucks for it?
  5. I am planning to have a Phenom II x4 955 to replace the unlocked Sempron140(Athlon II x2 4400e now). Will it be fine to combine the Phenom II x4 and the AMD Radeon 6570HD at the same time with this power supply? Note: My power supply label says this except for that my current says 4A and 7A for the Frequency it says 50-60 Hz. From the looks of it, mine seems not to be branded. http://cdn2.sulitstatic.com/images/2012/0717/202645338_2026343563352d59f2aa1f5803da4d47932134a6efbbd2f5a.jpg Do you think this power supply is enough for replacement? Or replacement is no longer needed? http://pcx.com.ph/components/power [...] -700w.html Cheers.
