For people who want to unlock cores on their phenom II X3's or their phenom II X2's (commonly the X3 720 and the X2 550). Here's a great guide I found for unlocking cores!

The issue with these crapzor processors is their crap cache. 512kb l2 cache, no l3 cache..

Phenom X2 II 550 BE comes with 6 mbs of l3 cache, and 512kb l2 per core...
Not to mention unlocking to quad core if your lucky. Even at the $40 price... the 550 is a better buy...

Of course if your on a tight budget, then yeah go for it :D

You can't beat the 550's performance @ the same price, especially if you're going Intel against AMD.
