    Default Enable 4th Core X3 720

    Anyone else try this with a triple core AMD chip? I did but my 4th core must be dead.Could not get it to show in cpuz or task manager.

    I've done some more research and found that Asus mobo,s won't allow it.Also AMD is getting the other mobo brands to " fix this buggy bios" as they think their X4 sales are being affected . They won't let us have any fun, lol.

    my 4th core unlocks on my board,well when it wants to. Seems with mine F4a bios seems to be the best one so far, but only 1 out 10 times will my system startup with the 4th core enabled.
