    Excellent, thanks for posting your results. I haven't tried unlocking one of these. Keep us updated on the overclocking. :toast:

    Don't forget drop the Hyperthread multi to 7x to keep it under 1900 mhz. You should also drop the ram ratio to lower the ram clocks.

    My Athlon II 240 clocks to 3.5GHz with 1.4v (undervolted from 1.425v) and passed OCCT Linpack for over 7.5 hours. I don't know how far you'll clock seeing as how you've got a quad core and I've got a dual core, but you should be able to get some pretty impressive results.

    I have no idea why the stock voltage is so high... you would think it would be 1.2 or something. If can overclock by 700MHz and still undervolt a little bit, there's some really excessive stock voltage going on.

    Every one who is buying athlon x3 should look for CACYC batch third latter C means it is a DENEB core with L3 cache. The there is chance to be unlocked to PhenomII x4 not athlonII x4.

    AMD 45nm can do up to 1.5v 24/7 on stock cooling without much problems as long as you keep it under 55c (max 60c) in full you'll be alright.

    Good cooling & good air flow is always better , specially if you go 1.550v & over... ;)
