    Apologies if you already know this.
    Read about it and idiotically tried overclocking an unlocked undervolted X4 Got errors in two seconds and lost some 14 hours worth of folding@home

    Currently just at stock - any kind of unlock seems to cause instability now
    Maybe when I need the power I'll experiment, I didn't change any voltages apart from vcore and DRAM so maybe doing that wil make a difference, I'm not sure.

    Just an old xigmatek HDT S1283. At £17 you can't really argue. Keeps it cool and it's silent.

    Re: Core Unlocking

    Ouch..

    I'd still try clearing the CMOS or upping the voltage (not a good option, but it's something to try nevertheless).

    Let's hope for the best
