When the screen came up for pressing of bios, it said x3 in the top right corner, Bios reads it as an X4 965 but showed core 0,1,2 and 3 in bios with the 3rd being locked.. This worries me.
I unlocked it and it said x4 and it still read the same X4 965. I tried system requirements lab and It didn't register as a quad core before unlocked,but did when unlocked.
I then downloaded HWMonitor and it won't show me my CPU Core Temps at all.
Why was the 4th core locked when i put it in, and why cant i get CPU temperature readings.
This is making me uneasy, Help would be appreciated.
That is normal and there is nothing wrong with unlocking the 4th core. That is a great chip for $109. What is your motherboard?
Go to google and search for and downnload AMD overdrive, it will show your cpu temps
