Yes indeed. It resides under Advanced BIOS Features -> CPU Unlock

BTW if you get your hands on this board and you do perchance unlock cores, let me know how it goes smile.gif Mine has issues unlocking.

Thanks for the answer.
Seems to be a trend for Gigabyte to move the unlock feature to the Advanced BIOS Features section. smile.gif
My CPU is also strange when unlocked ,but it allows me to use it for short period of times when some games need more CPU power.
I hope i ll get one as soon as my online stores have it all ,searching for lowest price and looking for user feedback in the meantime.

xd did you pick one up yet? This board has all the goodies needed to get some really nice OC's. I dont even see a benefit of owning my 890FXA after reviewing this board.

EDIT: Thought I would add that I'm seeing people reporting CPU-Z Valids with a 850SB? Would not be pleasant to see this if it is truly a false advertisement. Might be outdated software. And there is a Bios Update available right now for this board.

I'm planning on it for the future, i.e. when the price is lower, after the FX-Series is out. My Thuban is fine for what I need to do with it (mostly video editing/encoding) at least until the end of the year.

The SB950 is really no different from an SB850; just some additional power and manufacturing node optimizations as well as a few extra feature support. Same case with SB850 vs SB750 really (except the SATAIII support).

But that isn't really the point. Are you getting what you are paying for is the real question.

Matas if you do have the time could you post a CPU-Z shot with the SB data displayed?

guys, a quick check: how good is ram overclocking on this board? can 2000MHz be easily done on decent ddr3? smile.gif
