I've been reading and reading about unlocking cores and the right combination of mobo and cpu. My previous computer died and I decided it was time to at least give it a shot.
First, I didn't want to hijack anyone's thread and I've tried searching, but must not be able to find the right keywords to use. Regardless, I'm unsure of what to do.
I unlocked the 3rd and 4th cores of my Phenom II X2 550 Callisto to an X4 B50. Had to boost the voltage ever so slightly to get it to post, but with 3 fans, the temps are still sitting pretty.
Benchmarks with EVEREST look great without overclocking and I'm a little hesitant to dive into that at the time being.
Tests make the setup appear stable, but when I leave the pc alone and the screensaver shows, it has trouble coming back. When I press a key or move the mouse the screen comes back, but is unresponsive for approximately 10 seconds. It never completely locks up, but it seems like it's about to.
Does anyone here have any possible insight or suggestions?
