Well hello everybody..

Going to buy a new gaming rig.. and getting this for mobo: http://en.ocworkbench.com/tech/asrock-890gx-extreme3-amd-890gx-sb850-board-review/

I planned to get Phenom II 1055t as processor, but is it indeed possible to have a 945 quad core unlocked to a fine six-core? I thought core unlocking was possible only with x3 and x4 processors, but to have x4->X6 ? Sounds almost too good!

Anyone tried it? Confirms?

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

It's not possible, the only Phenom II X4 that can be unlocked to a Phenom II X6 is the Phenom II X4 960T (see here) that hasn't be released to the public.
