    Mine came Friday CACEC AC 1024 FPMW

    Unlocked to quad, but my asrock 890gx finally gave up the ghost, so no further testing

    That's a shame. Can't have been old. Any idea what went wrong?

    Re: Athlon X2 5200+ 45nm 2.3GHz AM3 unlocks to Phenom FX-5200

    Been running an x6 since around may last year, started random shut downs around end of November, pulled it and found the thermal tape around the power mosfets had started to liquefy and covered the surrounding area. There were also small balls of solder, it was obviously getting that warm the solder was starting to melt. I cleaned it applied a thermalright hsf, and it booted, but any sort of overclock and during stress it would shut down.

    I pulled the thermalright hsf and again more solder had appeared, I then opted for a 550 be, which unlocke to tri and it ran this ok under stress, and this is after a puff of magic smoke coming out of one of the fets(upon inspection no visible signs of burn). Lambdatek would not rma as I had pulled the fets hsf, so I settled for running a quad in it. Thus the 5200 purchase, but it gave it up after only a short time.

    cheers

    I think this might be the cpu for my htpc, if it unlocks fantastic, if it doesn't then still no problems as a dual is prob all that is needed.

    ok, probably stupid question - scan says this is AM3 but AMD site says X2 5200 is AM2, is this a newer version which is AM3 or is it a mistake on scan?

    There are 2 X2 5200+'s
    The old Athlon 64 X2 released years ago, and
    This new Athlon 2 X2 that is basically a 45nm phenom, that has cores disabled.

    Re: Athlon X2 5200+ 45nm 2.3GHz AM3 unlocks to Phenom FX-5200

    Yeah, there were a couple of old versions on 65nm AM2 at 2.6 or 2.7 GHz with differing amounts of cache. One if those may have been OEM only. In spite of the lower clock speed, the new CPUs perform similarly to the old ones in most applications.

    These new 5200s are 45nm AM3 at 2.3 GHz. It appears that there is a mix of native dual cores (regor) and locked quad cores (deneb) being sold under the same name but some recent UK OEM stock have been locked quads.

    The naming is strange really. Many old AM2 motherboards will not take the new CPUs due to BIOS limitations.

    Re: Athlon X2 5200+ 45nm 2.3GHz AM3 unlocks to Phenom FX-5200

    I wished I'd bought one now! Knowing my luck if I order one it will be a native dual core that isn't unlockable.

    Those results look good.

    Re: Athlon X2 5200+ 45nm 2.3GHz AM3 unlocks to Phenom FX-5200

    Slight setback last night. Had an IBT failure just before bed. Not a complete lock up. It sort of hung for a couple of seconds, carried on, then gave me failure message. CPU temperature had been peaking at 47 so I don't think that was the problem.

    Will come back to it tonight and see if more vCore or CPU-NB voltage helps.

    Settings were the same as my 24 hour prime95 run. Should have just run IBT earlier I guess.

    Re: Athlon X2 5200+ 45nm 2.3GHz AM3 unlocks to Phenom FX-5200

    Could you drop the HTlink multi down to 7? I would prefer just under 2000 to just over 2200. Its not 'supposed' to make any differnce on performance.

    I know my CPUNB flakes out just over 2300 too. I'm a bit of a sissy when it comes to voltage and would prefer to stick to stock.

    I have plenty of voltage headroom. If this was a C3 955 at stock I would be significantly undervolting the vCore. I'm also well within AMD's guidelines for CPU-NB voltage when overclocking on air.

    Another 0.025v (to 1.25v) vCore cured the IBT thing now. 20 runs at standard is fine now.
