one other thing to try I had a similar setup with a 820d and the p5n32-sli before I tossed it all for an AMD setup but what you can do is go intot he bios and see if there is a generic option to enable hyperthread? yes I know that your chip doesnt have hyperthreading but untill I enabled hyper threading and updated to the newest bios my board wouldnt see both cores either,,

if you have it loaded right then AI-boost will show two cpu utilizations, and task manager will show two core usages,,,,

try it out let me know it helps,, it worked on my asus board,, nearly doubled my sandra scores
