An awesome read. Thanks for posting.

Though i am sure smd can confirm this more than others but its very cpu dependant. Not ALL will be a successful unlock. Some will be always unstable others rock solid. Though by the sound of things this could be the best AMD chipset ever released.

I know the current unlocking is hit and miss.

If they can isolate which chips will unlock by a serial # or something you can bet people will be hunting them down like a DO Intel rather than a CO.

Yeah for sure.

Many like to do it with the current Phenom x2 550 3ghz dual costing about £75. Most can unlock and clock to nearly 4ghz quad core. That is better than most 955 can manage. So the potential is there and its great to have. Just hope there is a way of finding ways of success rather than gamble.
