Yes it will unlock cores. (Read here)

From what I've seen, it's a solid board as far as component selection goes.

No words on Overclocking yet, but Biostar's T-Series boards for AMD & Intel have been solid choices. I would go with it.

No problem man.

That board seems to be solid:
Looks
Components
BIOS Options (aka, Core Unlocking, necessary voltages)
Cooling

It's all there. So I've got hopes for it.

You should post a review & such when you get the board. That way more people can see what it's really like.

Sempron 140's are Athlon II x2's with 1 core disabled.

ACC, NVCC, or any of the new Core Unlocking techs will allow you to unlock a core if it's a good one.

If you are ordering this board in hopes of unlocking cores, you need to pay attention to which version of the board you get. NewEgg just delivered one to me (by mistake, I had actually ordered a 790gx board.) The features look nice, and was considering keeping it, but found out the following. Versions 5.0 and 5.1 do not support ACC or Biostar's "Bio-Unlocking." You will need version 5.2 in order to unlock/lock cores. See the following link, when you switch from v5.0/v5.1 to v5.2 in the drop down box, the only thing that changes is the AMD OverDrive with ACC feature ability on the 5.2.

I do like the board, going to call and see if they have any 5.2's in stock that I can swap this 5.1 for. Looks like I won't be starting on this build until next week.
