Would i be able to OC and *** after that? Thx m 0 l seanr111 June 13, 2010 7:54:24 PM I'm not completely sure however I think it should unlock it just fine. It says it supports the Athlon II CPUs under the supported CPU specifications. m 0 l batuchka June 14, 2010 6:41:38 AM Unlocking depends on many variables such as if the chip batch is unlockable worthy , etc so should be seen only as a bonus not a given ^^ m 0 l seanr111 June 21, 2010 4:16:06 PM Best answer selected by seanr111. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
