Don't really want to try running in the OS yet. xD I wonder if I am actually running 4 cores. Is there a way to check online? Maybe linux has a CPU-Z version for linux (express gate). HMMMM!

edit:i've also contacted asus and we exhausted all possible options on how to unlock cores. However, I'm in express gate right now with 4 cores enabled! eeek!!!!! i think, i don't know for sure, but the switch is turned on and is red showing 4 cores enabled. I wonder if i just "wore"/"broke in" the processor? Testing OS now.

edit2: aklright turns out my cores aren't enabled. ._.

plus asus had no idea why i could run with 1 or 2 cores enabled when the core unlocked was disabled, but once enabled I couldn't.

You just answered a question that was posted in 2010.

"not a lot of activity"? Some threads are multiple hundreds of pages.
