Hi
i can confirm that mobo can unlock the 960t and fun after rebooting as i have the same board and cpu as you, first time tryed i got bsod with 6 cores unlocked but after going back into bios and tunring i core off (core 6) it worked fine. i have disabled it now though as i just wanted to see if i could unlock any cores on my cpu untill i can get a bigger psu to run it with cores unlocked

Hi

Don't forget that the extra cores are not always ok. Sometimes they are just locked but others there is a reason why they are locked and if you try and unlock them they won't be stable or work properly.
