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.
Depreciated posted a topic in Overclocking and CoolingIt 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.
