OCZ 500W ModXstream Pro modular PSU

AMD Phenom II x2 560 BE (now core unlocked to PII x4 B60 @3.3GHz)

ASUS M5A99X Evo MoBo (Bios 1604 latest version)

4 x 4GB Kingston DDR3 1333 Ram 

2 x Sapphire low profile HD5570 1GB DDR3 (not in cross fire)

2 x 19 inch 1440 x 900 monitors one on each video card

ASUS Xonar D2X PCI-E sound card

64 GB Samsung 830 SSD sata III (system drive)

Western Digital Carviar Blue 500GB sata II(program drive)

2 x Sony sata DVD-RW

Windows 7 Home 64 bit

 

 

I'll try to keep this short ! 

 

In the above system  I put in an AMD 1045T six core CPU which turned out to be a bag of poo ! So I took it out and returned it for a refund, I then put the 560BE back in and used the core unlock of the MoBo to turn it into the B60.

 

I have run Hwinfo 64 and all 4 cores have activity on them and go between 800MHz and 3.3GHz depending on load, also looked at windows task manager and again all 4 cores show activity.

 

Have run Cine Bench's (11.5 64bit) CPU bench mark a few times one after the other with no problems and I have run Prime over a 24hr period again with no problems and Hwinfo say's my CPU temp is 56c while prime was running.

 

So my question is, are there any other programs I can try to stress my CPU ? Or do you think I'm safe to say it's stable in it's unlocked state ?

Your good. If you can prime 95 for 24hours with no issue's. But just for reference other CPU tools I can mention are OCCT, and AMD Overdrive as well. But, if it will prime, it'll do those as well. So there's no need to worry.
