No, lately they are locked. Look for older post using THG search engine in the forums, other thread talk about it.

You are lucky if you buy it recently.

Still looking for a <b>good online retailer</b> in Spain :frown:

Bartons (and other AMD cpus) unlocked til approx week 39 (there are a few exceptions as some were locked before week 39)

After week 39 Bartons and other AMD cpus started being locked (again there are a few exceptions)

There is now a new trick to unlock the locked Bartons. See here for more info:<A HREF="" target="_new">;/A>
