Asrock N68-S and N68-S UCC

Hello,
My question is next. I have a PC with an N68-S mobo with a Sempron 140 2.7GHz single core processor. I've read that, this processor is an X2 but its second core is locked. My mobo does not support the UCC feature, but the N68-S UCC does, and it can open the other core of mine proc. Now the question is, could I try to install the N68-S UCC BIOS version on my motherboard, is there any chances it will work?? As I see all the other features are the same on these motherboards. :S

    It will not work the bios is written for a specific board trying to install a bios for the wrong board could cause board to never post again ever so its not a good ideal to mess with the bios like that.
  2. Hmm, thank you for the fast answer SAAIELLO. But what could be the deferences in these two mobos? I mean phisically.
