  1. Theoretically a X2 is a dual core processor, what exactly do you mean by "unlock" a core?

    The motherboard has a SB710 and the BIOS has ACC, so the motherboard is capable. Whether the chip unlocks or not is a gamble. I had two Phenom II 550s and only one would unlock to B50x4.

    Here is the Core unlocking guide for a step by step if you need it:

    As far as cooling, it becomes a 125W CPU like the Phenom II 955 so it will need more cooling. Usually the TCTL calculation becomes FUBAR'd when unlocked, so just monitor socket temperature.
