So I purchased a new CPU a couple months ago, and didn't bother to mess with the Bios after installing it. Anyway, the CPU I purchased was an AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE, which, as I understand, is supposed to have all four cores unlocked from start, with no need to do anything yourself. Anyway, some time had passed and about a month ago I was in my Bios messing around with some settings and noticed that under CPU Settings it showed something like this: Core #0 - Unlocked Core #1 - Unlocked Core #2 - Unlocked Core #3 - Locked I started up my computer without making changes to check what my computer said, and sure enough, in task manager, it only showed three cores. I'm almost positive that I'd remembered seeing four cores in the task manage on multiple occasions before, but of course, couldn't be sure. So I'm not sure if it was always like this from when I installed the CPU, or if something changed it for the first month or two I had it installed. Anyway, went back into Bios and changed it to Unlocked, and now all four cores show as unlocked and my computer seems to be running fine, but now I am unable to see the temperature readouts for each of my cores--which I understand is a side effect from unlocking cores, though I shouldn't be having that problem considering the 965 BE is supposed to come with all four cores unlocked AFAIK. I'm not too concerned about the temperature thing really, but I'm just wondering if this would have any effect on my computer, or if it could mean that the CPU is faulty, or something along those lines. I appreciate any help, thanks!
