I just unlocked x3 445 using asus core unlocker to phenom x4 b45.When it boots up,its showing 4th core is unlocked and it showed in Bios too.After the system restarted its not going beyond the windows screen[its stuck :(  ].What could be the problem ?
Do i need to do anything else to get phenom x4 ?

When unlocked to phenom x4,the temparatute was below as showed in bios
cpu temp - 52'c
vcore-1.344

specs :
athlon ii x3 445 cpu
My mobo is asus m4n68t m le v2
CM 400w psu.
hd 6670 gpu

and if the CPU is in it's original state does the unit then boot into windows.?
is the RAM overclocked at all or have you raised any other settings resulting in some sort of overclock.?


yes.I disabled core unlocker and its back to athlon x3 445 and using it as it was..

I haven't done anything.I just enabled core unlocker in bios.Thats it.

When its athlon x3,the cpu voltage is 35'c and vcore voltage is 0.988..

You've also consider that maybe you've got one of the many processors which have the extra core disabled because it doesn't work.

so unlock CPU and then bump up the voltage a little to stabilize.


But i'm running on stock cpu cooler...If its not a big problem then tell me the vcore settings..

just check the temps, that's all that matters since the voltage isn't high...


And the max temparature ?

I 'll do it now..

I'm unable to change vcore voltage :??: 

CPU-z shows 0.996v at idle and when i do open any thing then its reaching 1.344v...And this is on athlon x3 445 @ 3.1ghz :(

trying for screenshots of your BIOS, I can't find any on that motherboard of yours.


It has 2 options in bios 1.ignored and 2. 1.344..when i tried to lower 1.344,it doesn't change a bit

but you can unlock cores and enter BIOS and it showed this:
cpu temp - 52'c
vcore-1.344



Yes.!!

The settings are same in bios for both(52'c and 1.344).But cpu-z shows temp is 35-40'c and vcore is 0.996- 1.344 for x3 445. After unlocking i stuck at windows screen.

not liking your motherboard...
unlock cores and then save into BIOS and restart, go back into BIOS and not windows.
any changes in BIOS and settings then.?


Nope...Still the same

disable cool n quiet and c1e
set to 1.4v and try.
1.45v is max safe voltage. I had one of those that wouldnt work unlocked either.
