I am new to overclocking and i was wonder if i can do it. i heard the cpu i have ( AMD Phenom II X4 840 ) can turn into a hexa core. i do not know this is true or not. but if any1 knows i would like to know. also wondering if its worth it and a general idea on how to overclock it. this is my computer
unlocking to a hexcore is a low chance if not impossible on the 8XX series.
They have just been starting so unlock 6-cores on the 9xx serious phenoms. You have a aftermarket cooler so i would say just increase the FSB up to what every you want as clock rate.
Also you should check with your motherboard. Asus have built in function in their motherboards for unlocking the additional 2 cores. But also you should check the revision of your processor. Good luck.
