  1. Hi,

    i recently purchased new motherboard, cpu, ram

    asus M4A88T-M usb 3.0

    amd phenom x2 550

    x2 2 gig rams kingston

    the cpu was coming in at 3.1 ghz but i used the "core unlocker" feature and now its at 3.7 ghz, what i would like to know is it actually just Overclocking it or not.

    how will this affect the lifespan of the parts?

    thanks.

    Something is wrong here...
    Unless I misunderstood, the core unlocker should attempt to unlock core...as per the name.
    There should be no changes in clockrate.

    Watch your temps, and it shouldn't be a problem.

    Hi,

    so i figured out that the "Auto Tune" program is over clocking the cpu, and i dont think the "core unlocker" wants to play nice so its turned off now., but im leaving the cpu over clocked.

    'speed fan" has temp1 (im guessing motherboard) @ 34c although i think its abit higher when i checked in the bios was around 36c
    core @ 38c
    gpu @ 38c
