your cpu only has 2 cores theres no extra cores to unlock, if it was the x3 then you maybe be able to unlock the core but most are damaged.

Also your system would be a spider, mines a dragon lol x4 is dragon x2-x3 is spider. or something like that.

its very easy to be honest. Im almost done peicing together my water cooling kit. when i do get it maybe ill write a tutorial on how to build a comp.
Ill basicly just reverse steps with pictures, because i have to take it all apart when i do water cooling.

Yeah I'm a bit confused about thermal compound and how to apply it (thin layer over cpu?). Also I'm not sure whats the difference between a PCI-e slot and the slots that you insert ram into. There's also the "grounding" rule I don't understand and how long do I have to keep my hands touching metal or if it's even metal that I have to touch. Thanks!

For thermal paste you put like a bit about the size of a grain of rice on top of the cpu and then stick the heatsink on, it will spread on it's own.

what did you do to get yours past 3.8ghz. Ive only bumped up my multiplier to 18x but anything higher it isnt stable.

Did you up the voltage if so what voltage you at.

1.55 volts multiplier at 19 and SB at 203. Keep in mind that 1.55volts is crazy for a CPU. I honestly would leave yours where it is. My temps run around 49C full load which isn't bad but my case is phenomenal for airflow. Plus I have 12 93cfm fans. My case also has a fan behind the motherboard to cool the CPU from behind. You get what you pay for in cases.

I think he is going to be water cooling, so heat may not be so much of a problem.
