    Biostar TA760G + X3 440 = $70

    This deal is only till today (unfortunately) (05/06/2010).

    According to the paper ad its a cheap A760G board with only 2 memory slots. I thought I will pass this. Then went to Frys to pick up something and luckily noticed its T-Series TA760G board that is on the deal.

    Here is the problem/catch - both UPC codes and Frys SKU numbers point to A760G (the cheap one), but when they print out the quote it says TA760G and the receipt too says it.

    This board I think doesn't have unlock feature (but I will post if it does). Still its a good deal, so grabbed it. Needed a replacement for my server anyway.

    So anybody picking it up please make sure you pick up the T-Series board not the regular board.

    Happy OCing :D

    Unlocked the 4th core on MSI 790GX-G65 board. Cache did not unlock tho.

    They started running this last Sunday. Good board, but stay away from it if you plan on running a 6-core chip eventually. I thought it would be a good wat to get a cheap board for my 1055t, but it won't work, even after a bios update.

    It's never a good idea to run a 125W CPU on a cheap board IMHO. If you can afford a 1055t why would you even consider a cheap mobo?

    But that is a good deal and the x3 440 is an awesome CPU. You could keep the mobo for a spare low end rig and keep the CPU for a better mobo! I mean for that price the mobo is basically free!

    apparently its not only the SB710 that plays the role, it also depends on the internal wiring/circuit traces that is used for this unlock purpose.

    ^ yes for the record, the non T-Series does NOT have the unlocking option in the BIOS although it does have the SB710 :) Not sure on the T-series though.
