""The Unlocking Process
In terms of unlocking your “defective” cores, the process is actually very simple.
1. Enter BIOS.
2. Set Automatic Clock Calibration (ACC) or Nvidia Core Calibration (NCC) to AUTO.
CRUCIAL step for Asus and Gigabyte owners : Enable "Unleashing" or change "EC Firmware" mode to "Hybrid"
If it was successful, your processor should have a new name; ending in either x3, x4, or x6. Though naming is not always consistent on some boards. Congratulations, because you probably just unlocked your processor.
Once you are in Windows, or any other OS that you use, you should begin stability testing for your unlocked processor. I highly suggest the use of Prime95 "Blend Test" for 24 hours to ensure stability before overclocking""
