WHAT! there is no cool phenomII 550 club!!!
Really I just wanted to check out that foxconn am3, what better cpu then the 720 to do that, Also I want to have a CPU i didnt hand pick, I would enjoy that random chance! I may end up with a poor chip, My wifes new CPU is a gem, I have taken it pretty high but I dont think its fair to post those results. I am not one to brag, and to me i had an unfair advantage. I wouldnt feel to proud of that. It may sound retarded but thats who I am.
As for unlocking, I cant iterate enough that its very overated, A cool thing to do but it doesnt make or break the 720. Its only detectable in very limited apps and i do a little bit of everything. Here I am buying a board that i know wont unlock, although I might test the chip in the asrock just for kicks!
