hi all, i have a phenom 2 dual core 555 and with the asrock 790gx pro it unlocks all cores ok giving me a quad core. i dont want to upgrade but there is another issue with the board and was looking at getting a new board that will unlock so i thought the best bet would be the 970 extreme which has the same ucc software on it. will it work similar or is there really no guarantee?

well i dont want to stay with asrock, far from it because the southbridge is broken on this one but i reckon it is best chance of unlocking all the cores seeing as they unlock with the current asrock. i was thinking asus sabretooth just for reliability but price is an issue
