Unlocks hidden cores easily, lousy optical out.

Summary: Easily unlock 3rd and 4th cores (and L3 cache) on certain AMD processors (AD5000OGJ22GI). Optical out snap crackles and pops. This is with 3 different motherboards and under XP and Vista, and all kinds of drivers. Haven't tried the HDMI audio out yet. There's 4 or 5 different versions of this motherboard so watch which drivers you use. Sleep/Hibernation can be problematic but finally got it working on one of the boards, so it is doable.
Summary: My first board came with a dead memory channel, which means I was only able to use 2 of the 4 memory slots. Contacted Amazon, they sent me a replacement w/o waiting for the original one with 2 day shipping. Great service. Unfortunately second one arrived with same issue. Dont blame me in comments for lack of knowledge as I can tell when a memory slot is dead. I did the due diligence before concluding that both boards had issues.
