Shinobi,

Just so you know, it may not work with Every CPU... Use 1.7official It has the unlocking features and they will work best. IMO

- But the process works best if you leave everything at auto.
- Turn the Unlock CPU (EC Firmware) to Enable and reboot.
- Boot into the BIOS again and set the ACC to Auto and reboot again.
- Let it go into the OS and if your CPU is unlockable, you will see 4 cores in the first tab of CPU-Z. Download it from that hyper link there.

Let us know the outcome.


P.S. THIS IS TO EVERYONE.

THAT LINK IS TO THE NEW 1.53ver. OF CPU-Z if you'd like to download it!

Success!

One of the reasons i hadn't posted before now was i tested the board out and it was a no go...the board was doing some crazy stuff where it would flicker on and off and oh was it scary..

I noticed my motherboard controls where all sticky as well so after cleaning those as well as removing my cooler and the socket heatsink bracket i thoroughly dried the board and its now setting inside the bios...

I am running it on my sempron so now i am going to pop the 945 in and see what happens...

If you check in the thread now...i am on a mission to clean the chalky white residue the alcohol left behind...

SMH@ me for not clicking the link. But as I thought, you spilled something. Be careful more next time buddy.

PFFF no s***...i usually don't even permit drinks in my PC room/bedroom for the whole two PC's running case-less but i just wasn't paying attention and got too relaxed at my desk

You can't see it but my secondary rig was thrown in the Antec 300 cause i got so spooked...hopefully my Antec 300 Illusion will arrive before friday

Meh i have a standing beverage tray....knowing my luck i would end up with a keyboard full of drink

Thanks for all of the feedback y'all...maybe we should tack into the OP that our board is the only *proven* liquid proof motherboard

Anyways here is the rig breaking in some AS5 and a new overclock...i am still trying to find a RPM+CFM/Noise ratio for the fan so its been slowing down and speeding up through this IBT run thus higher temps but i assume i can crank it up higher when i get my case in without it being a bother...i am also working on my NB voltage as well and yes it can definitely go lower where as my CPU voltage is as low as it can go
