hi i have a 6 core Amd Phenom 2 running at 2.8ghz ( clock able with turbo core to 3.4 )(model 1055t)

Antec Veris black m- atx media centre
Amd Phenom 2 x6 (2.8) / (3.4 turbo core ) (model 1055t)
Asus matx m4a88t /usb3 mb
1 x4gb ram
Gpu Radeon 6850

would using a core unlocker effect my pc if i already have 6 cores ?
i can't over clock with out windows 7 freezing the cpu and bored temperatures never get over 55c on full load so it cant be that ???

It might negatively affect your ability to overclock, yes. Turn off any core unlocker you have.

The more cores you have, the more difficult it is to overclock. Also going against you is the fact that you're running a Micro-ATX board, which are generally not designed for overclocking. Some are, but in general M-ATX overclock worse than standard ATX boards.

Have you increased the CPU voltage when trying to overclock?

No, having only one RAM stick won't prevent you from overclocking. In fact, you should be able to overclock higher because of that.

You should try the overclocking software that comes with the board. It will overclock automatically for you. If that doesn't work, then you are out of luck.

Those 59ºC are in load?

And you also need disable C1E, Turbo core and Cool'n'quite.
