890GM Pro 3, X2 555 unlock question
Ok, so I got this board and the Phenom II X2 555 for an HTPC. From the initial power on the BIOS has indicated that I have an X4 chip. Windows 7 gave the chip a 7.3 at first and Task Manager indicated a quad core as well. So, I hit the X key at boot to see what would happen and the bios settings still indicate and X4 with different voltages and a minor change in clock freq. 200 to 215. Windows now scores the chip at a 7.6.
My question, how do I tell if it unlocked any cores and why does it appear that all 4 cores are there from the start.
Also using a Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard and cannot seem to make the system wake from sleep. I do have the bios adjusted to do it, I think and I have Windows configured to allow both devices allowed to wake the system.
I do have bios version 1.60, as shipped.
