Phenom II X3 720 4th Core unlocking fun
« on: October 21, 2009, 06:35:30 PM »

Unlocking the 4th core was successful. Oc'd to 3.2Ghz with 16x multiplier as well.

This Gigabyte MA790X-UD4P mobo makes it too damn easy

Nice.  Run Prime 95 on that for a burn-in yet?

Doing it at the moment. This Mushkin Blackline 1066 isn't playing very nice with Prime95.

Just curious, what's the rest of the PC?

Gigabyte MA790X-UD4P
Phenom II X3 720
Mushkin Blackline DDR2 1066 2x2GB
Geforce OC'd 9600GSO 768MB

Some HDs here and there ;)

It can not complete Prime95 without erroring out at 1066. At 800, it crunches it without a problem. Grrrr aggravating.

Return it then if you still can.  It's obviously not operating to spec.  (You have it running at the recommend voltage I'm assuming.)

Yup, exactly as they stated.

I just ran Memtest on one of the sticks, 70 errors at 1066/5-5-5-15. Bah!
