Bin the entire processor (intel's method) or release the chip with the failed core disabled as the rest of the core's passed fine. X3 is a 4 core CPU with 1 core failed quallity checks (they fail for a reason and unlocking them is very likley to cause system instability but sometimes you get lucky and everything works fine.) | Report abuse HugoStiglitz CPUs Expert October 20, 2011 12:54:35 AM if u want a 4 core CPU, buy a 4 core CPU. you may go through a pile of x3's before you find one that unlocks without problems. | Report abuse lodz05 October 20, 2011 1:00:09 AM I believe that my CPU will never unlock , it's looks like a no chance anymore anyway I'm very thankful to all who replied for my thread...
