My old system is an M4A79 Deluxe ASUS MOBO. I would like to rebuild it and give it away as a gift.

I am eyeing this CPU on eBay

http://www.ebay.com/itm/AMD-Phenom-II-X2-B59-CPU-3-4GHz-Unlockable-to-X4-HDXB59WFK2DGM-AM3-AM2-AM3-565-/130941110801?pt=CPUs&hash=item1e7cb2ca11

It only has 2 cores but says if I have the right mobo I can unlock the other 2 cores. My old system was badass back i the day and would make a great gift for someone who, unlike me, revolves his day around his pc. Will my old mobo unlock this CPU's other 2 cores?
