Solved Unlocked Phenom II X3 Tags: CPUs Core Phenom Overclocking Last response: June 18, 2010 2:33 AM in Overclocking Share unixman32 June 17, 2010 10:43:48 PM Hello all! I just unlocked the 4th core on my Phenom II X3. CPU-Z detects it as a X4 and the performance is great! it's overclocked to 3.5Ghz and perfectly stable! Ever since I unlocked the 4th core I can't seem to monitor the temps. Speedfan under core it just reads 0 Degrees C. AMD Overdrive also, it detects all 4 cores. But all the temps say 0 Degrees. Any ideas? I know the temps are not that high because my motherboard also has a CPU temp sensor. I can see that from AMD OverDrive. Any Ideas?

Its a trade-off. A good trade-off but still one.
