I heard that you can unlock phenom x cpus and I was wondering if my motherboard supports that. I'm planning on buying a new pc. I only bought my cpu+mobo combo deal. can I unlock cores or overclock the cpu?

mobo: asus m4a87t plus
cpu: phenom ii x2 560

it can still OC right?
If the board's BIOS allows for CPU clock multiplier and or Base clock increases along with CPU core voltage adjustment, yes. I can't tell just by looking at the BIOS manual because it is too sparse to show that detail of information. Those options would be under the Advanced/CPU Configuration if present.

But be aware, that board isn't really designed for OC'ing. It appears to only have 4+2 power phases and lacks a heat sync on the MOSFETs.
