I have a new build with an ASUS motherboard that has CPU core-unlocking abilities, and an AMD phenom II X2 555BE processor. I have not found an answer concerning when to attempt the unlock of the two dormant cores....... Do I toggle the onboard unlock switch before I power up for the first time, or do I do I get it up and running with components and OS running smoothly before I unlock?

Just wondering.........

make sure the PC works fine and your two cores are stable. then turn it off, boot it back up, go into BIOS and see if you can unlock more cores in ACC.

Thanks! I was leaning toward that approach- I was just curious if it could be done all at once.......
