I’ve stubbled across a 570 that isn’t stable unlocked at 550. Or 500 it seems.
Might have to pull it apart and re lock it.

Why didn't you test it before reassembling? If you're afraid of damaging the die, don't be, you only need to put a bit of thermal paste and a cooler on top (without using the retention clips).
Just make sure that the cooler doesn't slide. 😀 I've already done this four times and it worked great for 2+ hours during the Prime 95 + 3DMark2000 stability testing.
because I've done a bunch of them, none have had issues till now. I don't feel comfortable burning them in without a IHS anyway.
so does a 570 2+ that can't unlock have any value? I'm gonna try and put the resistor back and reattach IHS
