My motherboard died a few days a go. I had a Gigabyte GA-880-GA-UD3H and a AMD Phenom II X2 555 unlocked to 4 core. I would like to spend as little money as possible, my budget doesn't allow much. So I would like to just buy a replacement MOBO. I would greatly prefer an Asus or Gigabyte mobo. The thing is it is not very clear which of the new model mobos are capable of unlocking the two extra cores. Does anyone have any info on this. I have looked at both manufacturer's websites. Asus has a list of mobos on their website that have that feature, but none of the mobos in the list are current models. I would be fine with a non-current model as long as it has USB3 and Sata3 but I cannot find any of those models for sale (I only looked at Amazon and Newegg).
