More about : phenom 8450 unlock phenom eightdrunkengods June 8, 2011 5:05:08 AM Some of them can. IMO it isn't worth rolling the dice at this point. The price difference between a phenom II x3 and an x4 (like the 955 BE) is small. It's even smaller if you get an Athlon II x4. arsiandy June 8, 2011 5:21:12 AM yes maybe you're right but i already had this phenom ii x3 8450, and i just want to unlock it to phenom ii x4, can u give some advise, pls?
