    Well,
    I know this has been done some time ago with the 550BE but I haven't seen
    it yet with the new CPUs, not on this forums at least.

    I'll make a spreadsheet later if we get more results.
    Please keep this thread clean and post only the following information:

    1.CPU - athlon II x2/x3 , Phenom II x2/x3 and model.
    2. Unlocked to x3/x4 or couldn't unlock.
    3. Batch number.


    This way we can see which batches have higher chance and such and I will work out % as well.

    Here's mine:
    1. Phenom II X2 555 BE
    2. Unlocked to x4
    3. 1002EPMW

    Will get too messy with the clocks because of the screenshots and validations, but you can add your OC yes.
    Please post your one too and please try to keep this clean.

    No chatting ! Only unlock info / cpu / batch and eventually your OC !

    1. Athlon X2 5000+ 45nm
    2. Unlocked to Phenom FX-5000 x4 with 6mb l3 cache (partial success - it passes all stability tests I throw at it but I get warnings related to cache hierarchy in event viewer and it ocasionally BSODs when booting - basically mine actually has a defective core but I managed to get it usable)
    3. I'll edit this in when I've looked it up.

    Other criteria. Clocked to 3.3GHz on a Jetway HA08 Combo motherboard. Never stable at stock speeds unlocked. Only stable once a few voltages and frequencies were tweaked

    Might I suggest BIOS revisions? I've successfully unlocked on versions DDR2-A09 and DDR2-A07.
