Good Evening Everyone & Merry Christmas,

I will be getting a new mobo this christmas and was looking primarily at the GA-990FXA-UD5, it has everything that I would like for my next upgrade, however I am uncertain as to whether it has the Auto Unlock Function (Core Unlocking), I have a Phenom 565 BE and know that it has two extra cores that work...

My question is whether this mobo has a core unlocking feature, if it does, how does it compare to other manufacturers core unlocking solutions

The board does feature core unlocking. As far as comparison of unlocking features, I can't say having not used the board but the bios seems easy enough to navigate unlike some where unlocking and relocking cores is somewhat hidden. Refer to page 43 'advanced BIOS features' in the manual available here
Hope it helps
