    Hey all,

    So I've been screwing around with my bios settings (smart, right), no but I know what I'm doing haha. Anyway, I have an Amd Phenom II 545 Callisto Dual-Core Processor, stock @ 3.0Ghz. Well now it's stable @ 3.625Ghz, voltage is something like 1.349v.

    Anyway, I enabled ACC, and unlocked the other two cores in the processor, so it would be a quad-core :)icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana:), but the computer just freezes when Windows 7 goes to boot up. The Bios of course posts, however. And enabling the third core is stable, just no this fourth one!

    So could I stabilize it by bringing the voltage to somethign like 1.5v? I know that's not "recommended" but it's been done when overclocking a Phenom II, so?...
