Hi i have unlocked my X2 5000+ to quad core deneb and all if fine, very stable. However, i cant get it to OC past 2.5GHz. Ive talked to people who have had theirs running fine at 3.2GHz on stock air. What am i doing wrong? I downclock the memory to CL4 from CL5 and 667MHz down from 800MHz. HT link dropped to 8x. Raise bus to 235 from 200 and i get around 2.5GHz stable. If i raise it anymore system refuses to boot...Should i be increasing voltages? Also when setting up to BIOs to change CPU settings it asks if i want AUTO, Optimized, CPU+PCI SYNC or CPU+PCI ASYNC.....which of the sync and async do i need to select? Thanks
Thanks for the reply, it is currently set at ASYNC as i suspected thats what it might be. What is a safe maximum vcore for this cpu? and is there anything else i need to change to be able to clock it a little closer to the 3GHz mark without it failing to boot? Thanks
Sure there is, and at a fraction of the cost of a real Phenom. But i guess you gotta take your chances with regards to the reason the 2 unused cores were locked. Aiming for 3.2GHz ideally and i heard its possible to acheive this without touching the voltage no less.
