hi guys i have previously posted my forum of how to unlock 4th core of 720 x3 be ........

But it seems it does'nt work out for me i have the below given M.B. in my spec's M4A78EM/1394.

i unleashed it for all core's and with 2% ......

Instead my whole cpu stops for sometime like 4 sec's and then again restart's after change in BIOS..

I have also updated my bios .... ;)  ;)  ;)  ;)  ;)  :sleep:

If the 4th core doesn't unlock then maybe its defective. it is not a guarantee that you will unlock it because in most cases it is already defective.

Unlocking the locked cores is a crap shoot. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. They were locked for a reason. What that reason was for your CPU you'll never know.

The X3 720 BE is still a great CPU and it's very overclockable with it's unlocked multiplier.
