Alot of people trying this are, some say its stable while others say its not.Well the only thing you have to consider is, these chips may have not passed the quality test in order to be quad cores. You could run into issues down the road.
I don't think AMD is supporting this at all. They aren't smart enough to do a guerilla marketing type of thing like this. I wish they were, but...Alot of people trying this are, some say its stable while others say its not.
Like some peeps over at XS said, Amd might be quietly supporting this, Since its a very simple thing to do to activate the 4th core.
Mind running 4 hours of Prime95 and or IBT? Im trying to get some people posting some stability shots instead of the ''Omg it works'' Screnies.
Think about it, Its soo simple to activate the core just by choosing 1 simple option, Dont you think they did more than just attempt to disable the 4th core and ship them out?I don't think AMD is supporting this at all.

yes likely a 4th core that didnt work so well, hence why it is an X3...So its true, a X3 is actually a X4 with one core disabled. Very interesting.
And this would probably equate at least enough stability for some hardcore gaming sessions.... Not too much work to enable the extra core when doing something non-critical, and go into the BIOS and disable it for mission-critical work.............So far most people said it errors at 3-4 hours of prime95.
