Hi, im wondering if their is a way to unlock the above CPU from 3 to 4 cores using my asus m3n78-vm motherboard?

Ive already updated to the latest bios version, but cant see any options involving this.

Any advice or answers would be appreciated.

thanks guys

I'm gonna have to go with no, there isn't any Nvidia chipset I know of that can unlock cores. You need Advanced Clock Calibration (ACC), which is a feature of AMD/ATI chipsets.
