    I have a Phenom 3core. I got this chip from a reputable tpu member. He told me that the unlockable 4th core makes the proc unstable while overclocking. My question is if i lowered the mult. and unlocked the fourth core, would that produce better crunching results than over clocking the 3 cores to 3.6 or 3.7?

    speed and cores is all that matters. yes, another core at slightly lower clocks will yield better results. It does an extra project at once.

    updating now, thank you :respect:

    What speed would the 4 cores be at? As long as they were at least 2.8ghz, a quad would be better, if they were less than that it would be better as a tri at 3.7

    Well I'm getting my psu this week and only lack a gpu... i'm looking for something along the lines of a 4550 to get me by. I need one at a reasonable price like around 30-40 dollars that way i can get to crunching on my dedicated cruncher! this will make #5 on my farm and it will produce 2nd best so i'm in a rush cause i wanna hit the mill mark by July 4th. Even if i could barrow something i'll pay shipping!!! I'm a war vet and an eagle scout so my word is good!

    I'm in need of 2x2gb ddr3 ram if anybody has anything? I've got 2x1gb micron ram atm running 1333mhz 7-7-7-20 @ 1.65v that I could do part exchange with if anybody has some spare or in a machine that doesn't really need 4gb :p Also got 2x2gb OCZ reapers for sale in my for sale thread.

    So i just updated the bios on my asus board and now it will not let me overclock? I am hoping this is something stupid that i have overlooked but my mult. is at 4 and the onlything that i can adjust is the fsb... in the bios set up it shows that i'm oc'd but when i pull up cpuid it shows me at 4x 203. HELP IS NEEDED!!!!

    sounds like it, cool n quiet reduces multi to 4 to make the clock speed 800mhz, then when you start of cpu demanding app it ramps it back up to full speed. At least thats what happens on my phenom x4, but i've since turned it off as i run WCG all the time: no need to waste precious computing power by leaving it idle! :laugh:

    After talking to 3 tech guys from asus found out it's the bios fault and they've known about it. They were prog. for 6cores and that's why it downclocked my quad... new bios chip monday and fixin to add #6 on the farm... anyone got a 4550?
