    Phenom II X4 960T ''Zosma'' Unlock to Phenom II X6

    Well I was planning on seeing if I could unlock the cores, but not sure how to do it. Any guides on this? Probably going to get the microcenter motherboard today since it's close by. I don't want to do anything that can possibly damage the CPU at all though. I have a couple people interested...

    Phenom II X4 960T ''Zosma'' Unlock to Phenom II X6

    I'm not going to be doing any overclocking, just want to unlock the cores if possible and possibly use the turbo function if it doesn't decrease the life span of the CPU.

    What would I be missing out on if I went the microcenter board vs the newegg board, out of curiosity?

    Phenom II X4 960T ''Zosma'' Unlock to Phenom II X6

    The microcenter board (open box just like newegg) is only $104.00 with maybe $10 tax = $114.00 out the door.

    OK I will. Turbo ads what? 50% or something? How can I tell what boards would utilize the turbo? Looking at these 2 boards right now http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0334891 Open Box: ASUS M4A89TD PRO AM3 AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/...

    Phenom II X4 960T ''Zosma'' Unlock to Phenom II X6

    From what I understand, it was never used. Also, can't it be unlocked to 6 cores, making it more valuable as an X6 1605T?

    Phenom II X4 960T ''Zosma'' Unlock to Phenom II X6

    But is the 965BE theban based with 2 locked cores? From what I read" "With all 6 cores running, the 960T is recognized by BIOS as "Phenom II X6 1605T"
