Hi! I Recently upgraded from a Phenom 9600+ AGENA to a Phenom 2 X3 720 BE, i'll put it together tomorrow and i need to know a few things. I bought a motherboard that can unlock the 4th core with no issues whatsoever, it has been tested in several reviews and it works. But here's my question, asuming that my Phenom 2 X3 is one of the unlockables (fingers crossed) how safe is to keep it running with the unlocked core? Is this any bad for the processor? Will it shorten the life of the cpu? Assuming that it's safe with 4 cores up and running: The cpu comes with a 2.8ghz base clock, what do you think about pushing it to 3.0?? I really will need your help guys with the volts and stuff since i don't want to mess around with the volts :S it's an unlocked multiplier version so i want to stick to the default volts as much as i possibly can. Thank you guys a lot in advance and if you want to guide me trough this process ill be so so gratetfull !
