phenom 2 x2 550 be
I recently bought an AMD Phenom 2 x2 550 BE, my motherboard is a gigabyte ga-770t-ud3 and 2 gigs of ram ddr3, i tried to unlock the other 2 cores of my processor . When it boots win7 i get a BSOD with : irql_not_less_or_equal .
After i block core number 3 and unlock ther other ones ( x3 ) windows boots up and everything works ok . The question is, how can i unlock the other core ?
I have to mention the fact that i have connected only a 4x pin cable onto it + 24x pin . ( it requires a 24 pin + 8 pin )
howdy and welcome
list all your computer specs plz.
you may need to play with the aac thingie(+ -), and of course perhaps give it more juice.
Thank you for the warm welcome and for the fast reply .
MOBO : Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3
GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3 - GA-MA770T-UD3 (rev. 1.5)
Ram : Kingmax DDR 3 1600 MHZ
KINGMAX Technology Inc.
Video : Nvidia GF 9600 gt
PSU : 550 W
And finally the processor :
Amd phenom 2 x2 550 BE 3.1 ghz .
what brand is the power supply?
its possible that one core is defect or requires a lot of voltage to work along with the others. increase voltage a little bit and try again. in the aac window you should also have some options
long story short: the core is most likely defective, you probably wont be able to get it running properly
Not all 550BE can be unlocked to quad and some can only do 3 cores and most cannot be unlocked at all. Play around with your tri-core and see if you will have any problems in the next few days.
you should connect 8 pins as required by your motherboard
In most cases unlocking the core absolutely requires additional voltage. Take a look at this previous post: http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...tml#post312650
I would like to add that a few posts down after following my advice he *did* get it working... :thumb:
There's a reason why chips built with four cores are being sold as two- or three-core processors.
