Default Unlock X4 965 Miltiplier Help

I'm trying to oc my AMD x4 965 black, but no matter what i try, cpu-z shows multiplier locked @ 4.0. In the BIOS, i am able to increase the multiplier to 10, 15, 20, etc, but it always shows in cpu-z as 4.0.

I increase the cpu load, but it still is locked at 4.0 multiplier and a 800mhz core speed as well.

I used MS tweaker, but that didn't work; all out of ideas at this point; can anyone help on how to fix this?

Question: is XP 32 bit not allowing me to inmcrease the multiplier --- any help would be much appreciated.

Thx in advance.

Hi there I'm sorry you are having problems with this but AMD meant for this not to be unlocked and gave it a good GHz speed to prove why.

I have the same cpu like you and there are a few others that have it, but most boards cannot unlock that. :\
About your OC I see you pushed it to 4.0ghz but don't leave it like that for a long time.
If you want a good speed boost leave it at 3.0gnz and let it oc 3.8ghz when it feels needed to.

Also by looking at your specs you have a good setup, but if you really want a six core the 1035T going for 129.00 retail in most online stores will handle your needs.

Thank you very much for your input. It is much appreciated. I have been having other problems with my system. So I do the fresh reinstall windows xp. While adding all the software, I added asus ai booster. I actually got it to work. Set Multiplier 20 and fsb @204. Now my oc is 4.1. Cpu-z Still shows Multiplier @ 4x. But my system is Very snappy. Will continue to tweak with ai booster - Thanks mate - Cheers.
