I did a system build for a friend today consisting of the following

Athlon x3 425
Gigabyte MA78SLM-S2 760g motherboard
2gb patriot ddr2 800
All onboard and generic power supply.

So for kicks I thought I would apply the usual unlock method on the athlon x3 chip (set acc on to hybrid mode) restarted. Voila here I got a stable quad core chip


I will do some OCCT testing to see if the 4th core is stable later on as my friend is absolutly ecstatic that he got a quad core for the price of a triple core. But to all of you guys, the triple core chips are indeed gutted quad cores and evidently some are perfectly stable.-

You know, I never noticed that actually.Everything is set to auto for stock settings.Looks like im going to have to turn that voltage down a whole lot.
