I am trying to unlock a Dual core Phenom X2 555 BE cpu in a Asus M4A79XTD evo motherboard. I have a single HD 6850, 4 gigs of ddr3 and one hard drive 7200 rpm. I have a modular 550 watt psu an antec. I am using the latest bios update, 2102. It starts up fine i can browse and everything but every time i put it under load it shuts off. Any idea what type of voltage or anything like that I can change? Also the update changed the unlocking tool, i can no longer pick if i want 4 cores or a variety of 3 cores, but i can turn off cores individually, it says i have 6 cores though. It does show up as 4 cores unlock under the menu on windows index.
Processor: Phenom II 555 BE
Unlock pass or fail: PASS X4 @ 4.2Ghz
Motherboard: Asus M4A79XTD EVO
CPU Cooler: Sunbeam Core Contact 120mm
Voltage: 1.52v @ 4200Mhz, 55c load | 1.48 @ 4050Mhz 51c load

Any other pertinent info:

I'm sure I could get more out of it but 55c is my stopping point. Infact I may drop it back down to 4050 @ 1.48"
I found this on a forum about over clocking, same motherboard and cpu and bios, not sure what it means for me. Could be a bad core.
