I recently purchased the an ASRock N68C-S UCC motherboard, because of the core unlocking feature. I put an AMD Phenom II X4 960T into it.

I can't find the option to unlock the 5th and 6th cores in the BIOS. I have seen videos where under "CPU Active Core Control" it has the "[All Cores]" option, but mine only has "[Enabled]" and "[Disabled]". After enabled I only have the option to disable cores 1 through 3 (5 and 6 are not listed, and 0 can not be disabled)).

I thought I might need to update the BIOS so I flashed to the latest version (P.160), but the BIOS settings look exactly the same.

Can anyone help me out here?

Im not understanding why you are needing to unlock the 5th or 6th cores since your CPU is only a Quad Core (4 Cores)?

RMA both, and try again.


I already RMA'd the board once due to boot and onboard USB issues, and both boards had the same BIOS.

As for RMAing the CPU....

I think what LordGene means is that your CPU only has 4 cores, so you can't OC the 5th one, since it doesn't exist.

The 5th and 6th cores DO exist. The X4 960T is a hexa-core with 2 cores disabled (quad-core).
