As Josh talked about last night on the PCPer Podcast, ACC is an AMD users best friend.  The newest trick is unlocking the extra 6MB L3 cache on some Athlon II processors, essentially making them into Phenom II CPUs.  Drop by ALIENBABEL tech to see the benchmarks of one such unlocked chip.

“It seems that the ACC intended to improve overclocking on the original AMD Phenoms, is playing new magic tricks again. After it’s ACT 1 which was the unlocking of the disabled cores on the tri-core and dual core Phenom II X3 and X2’s, ACC seems to have found a new puppy to perform ACT 2 on. This time it unlocks the L3 cache on the upcoming Athlon II quad core parts.”
