I am sorry my friend but the geforce 7025 chipset will not be found on any high end overclocking boards
you will have to switch to an amd chipset sporting an x70 or x90 northbridge
if you want to effectively unlock and overclock the cpu.
not disregarding the boards power phase design and vrm cooling of course.

not quite. the 8120 is 125w.

edit: never saw the 95 on mine. locked it always reads 107w. with C&Q, it goes down to 77w. 95 is illusive.

Well thanks alot for all your input,I might email Gigabyte and voice my displeasure,I could have burned out the motherboard using their core unlocking option in the bios with the 960T,Why in the hell would they put such an option on m/b that can't handle it??

becase it will handle a Athlon II unlocked

Yes you are correct.
I was simply more or less just trying to get the point that the 960t is higher than 95w to 4thman.

it can unlock the 960t no doubt. the 960t just happens to push past the TDP threshold if you do so.
alot of other chips that unlock and do not push past the TDP would work just fine.
