So recently i built a new system, with an ASRock 970 Extreme 3 mobo.
Firstly, is Turbo UCC supposed to work with the Phenom x4 960T on this motherboard? i cant seen to unlock the cores, or was i unlucky and got a processor with 2 cores that are too damaged to unlock?
Secondly, HWMonitor appears to be giving weird readings compared to those given with their ASRock Extreme Tuning Utility provided.
This is what i mean:

Thanks.

The Figures on the screenshot are too small, or it's the size of the image that imageshack is showing us. Get that figured out right first. Yeah, and I mean after clicking on the image too.
The readings are crazy but it's not a very big thing, some hitch in the way the HW Monitor is detecting the sensors reading....
Those speeds aren't attainable without a flying rig and certainly not at those voltages. Try using just one software to monitor the stuff at a time, and check if the values look a little more closer to reality.

Yes, you could have landed up with a processor that can't be unlocked. That a bigger probability.

That's exactly the point, nothing wrong with the 960T that's why you should be happy you've got one.
