I am just wondering if anyone has any experience unlocking cores on this motherboard. I have had several problems with this board before and am concerned about screwing up another one!
So I have been able to unlock the cores and boot into Windows as a Phenom II X4 B45 processor.
My question is: when I open HWMonitor, it shows that the processor is drawing 178 Watts! Is this even possible? So I shut it down right away. Didn't even try to stress test it. Also tried it as an x3 and draws 133w.
My biggest concern is if this motherboard can handle having the processor unlocked. I had originally bought the board with a 1055t. But after frying two boards, got a different one for that CPU. Now come to find out, MSI has taken all 125W processors off the supported list for this mobo. I am concerned that it will not last very long if these numbers are correct.
