Is my CPU locked?! WTF?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I got a very strange Problem!

 

I can't set any Multi here! Only 12x works. When setting for example 10x or 11x System is booting also with 12x Multi.

 

All Tools just show 12x as Multi ...

 

So wheres the Problem?

Well, my standard cpu multi is 12x (ergo 2.4GHz ...)

 

When i now set multi to 10x oder 11x CPU-Z, Everest, CoreTemp show still 2.4GHz with 12x Multi!!!

Hmm....sounds like a bios/mobo/chipset issue. I'm guessing you don't have a buddy that has a an AM2 mobo you could try your processor in....

 

I have never heard of an AMD64/X2/Opteron/FX that isn't unlocked DOWNWARDS. All except the FX are unlocked UPWARDS. Is that the latest bios available (I don't have the luxury of owning that fine board so haven't kept track of the bios updates)

there are some CPU's that are locked both downwards and upwards, but they seem to be rare, I think I read sth about this somewhere, but I'm not sure where so don't quote me on this.

But basically if you can't change the multi in the bios then it's locked, no help there...

u cant change the multi with the X2 chips, only the fx series is unlocked, only thing u can change is the fsb

are you kidding me? all CnQ capable AMD processors are multi unlocked downwards.

 

probably ConiKost had a defect cpu.

 

have you tried installing it on a different mobo?
