I have the Phenom II x4 960T BE (Zosma) and motherboard Gigabyte GA-880GM-UD2H (rev. 1.4) BIOS F8.
1) I learned by accident that the Phenom supports RAM of 1333Mhz. I currently have 2x4 GB Dual Channel 1600Mhz, unganged mode. I don't see any performance issue, and BIOS are all to "Auto".
The RAM clock is at x8.00. Should i change it manual to x6.66 ~ 1333Mhz, or there is no reason? Will i see any improvement or i will run at "optimal" settings, but actually it will be a downgrade?
2)For the Zosma, they say that it has 2 unlocked cores. I know that in order to take my chances i have to go to BIOS at ACC and set EC frimware to "Hybrid" and Core Clock/Control to "Auto", and then reboot and wait to see if i will get a Phenom II x6 1065T.
My PSU is a Corsair 650W. The reason i am saying this is because the 960T is a 95W CPU while the unlocked a 150W. Also i have enabled at the moment Cool n' Quiet and Turbo Core/Boost. Should i de-activate those 2 when i will try to unlock ?
Any other preparations ?
