Unfortunately my chip did not unlock any extra cores but unlocking cores is a bonus, not a guarantee. You are buying a guaranteed 4 core processor with the chance of an unlock to a pentacore (5) or hexacore (6) processor, assuming your motherboard is capable of unlocking cores.

Although dismayed about the inability of my chip to unlock any cores, I am quite happy with the strength of the chip. I currently have it overclocked to 4.2ghz (stable) up from the stock 3.0ghz. Needless to say, this is quite a jump. As I type this review my temps are 21C for all cores under a cooler master hyper 212+ heatsink and an open-air case. For those unfamiliar with computers and overclocking, this is very cold (a good thing). My voltage is set at 1.404v. I have plenty of headroom and it is possible this chip can hit 4.3ghz. I may give it a try some other day but it's really not necessary.

It would have been nice if the chip unlocked but given its overclock performance I am pleased with the purchase.

Not only is this thing fast but its a great bang for the buck! I had zero problems through my build with it. It also works great when paired with one of Asus's Crosshair series. I was able to overclock mine from 3.4ghz to 4.0 with zero effort. Im not 100% sure if it has hidden cores but thats also what my Crosshair mobo is made for. Overall this CPU is great for everyday computing or heavy gaming. Not only is it cheap but its right up to par with the highest end of i5 processors. Highly recommended!
**EDIT**
Well I unlocked an extra core with my motherboard and wow this thing runs like a champ. Runs great and cool when paired with a Thermaltake SpinQ VT and keeps its temperatures in the mid 30's. As I said, it blows a friends i5 rig out of the water. Also, the black editions are meant to be overclocked.
**SECOND EDIT**
Its been two month with this processor now and it's still running strong. I was able to unlock it to 6 cores with my mobo. Jeez this thing blazes through everything and still begs for more. Even with the extra cores it still runs cool at 32-37 degrees Celsius. I also stand by my last statement, it may not be right with the i5 2500k but its just a few inches behind. Either way the CPU still runs cool and stable at 4ghz.

I put it in my Gigabyte 97 motherboard and it works. Tried over overclocking to 3.6 with success . My motherboard does not support unlocking cores so I don't know if I can do that.
I needed an AMD CPU quickly and my first choice was an X4 955 but they were out of stock at Amazon so I got this for $109. CPU prices change from day to day on Amazon.
I am happy with this CPU, it works as advertised and can easily be overclocked if I need it. I decided against the FX 4100 at the same price as I have heard it is a disappointment.

Like most stock coolers the one that comes with this chip has a loud fan and is much louder than on my Corsair 400W power supply.

I purchased this processor to upgrade an OEM HP p6803w desktop that came from the factory with an Athlon II x2 220 in its stock config. The Foxconn motherboard limited my choices to a max 95w power consumption range. The MoBo also has NO core unlocking or OC functions in the bios so any OCing would have to be done via software from within the OS. The 960T Black Edition was the best bang for the buck that met my power restrictions and also would allow for some OCing.
The fan and heatsync are very basic. To be honest I really expected a li'l better heat management considering this is a Black Edition but they aren't so bad that I'd take a star away.
The MoBo recognized it right away. While its marketed as a Zosma core, CPUZ reports it as a Thuban. Either way there are potentialy 2 unlockable cores there if I ever upgrade the MoBo.
With the stock cooler and fan and using AMD OverDrive I'm able to OC the multiplyer to 19x (3.8GHz) without having to up the voltage at all, so even under a full load the temp doesn't rise above 50c. By upping the voltage to 1.3125v I was able to push it to 20x (4.0Ghz) while still keeping the full load temp below 60c. Any higher would be risky, I won't and wouldn't recommend running a CPU at these temps. Better cooling is in the near future before any more OCing, but its nice to see that there's so much head room.
In conclusion, I am very very satisfied with this obviously high quality product and the current low discount cost is just gravy.

That's what I now have with the two extra cores unlocked. I set my bios to auto on the cores and it automatically unlocked the two extra cores on my Gigabyte M68M-S2P motherboard with FC bios. CPU-Z thinks it is an AMD Phenom II X6 1600T. I'm a happy camper. The bios and Windows 7 call it an AMD Six-Core Processor. I have it overclocked to 3.4 GHz for now. I did NOT use the stock cooler that came with it. It's a joke. I had a good AMD heat-pipe cooler on my old CPU and I reused that with Arctic Silver 5. This morning it was running at a cool 20C, but the room was cold. It has not gone above 30C, that I've noticed. This is a fun CPU to tweak.

UPDATE: Okay, the bios showed 6 cores and device manager showed 6 cores. The system seemed happy with the two extra cores unlocked. After much research on Google and trying several different hardware monitors I determined that the system wasn't actually using the unlocked cores after all. So, I locked them back and remain happy with it working as intended. It was a learning experience. I would guess that a lot of people who got them to unlock aren't actually using them. If CPU-Z CPUID monitor doesn't show 6 cores and 6 threads then they are not being used.

FINAL UPDATE: I purchased another one of these CPUs and tried to unlock the two cores in it. My newest PC would not boot. I decided to swap CPUs with the first one I bought 'cause I knew the cores would unlock. Behold, it works. CPU-Z CPUID now shows 6 cores unlocked. The original motherboard would unlock it but would only run 4 cores at a time. My new PC with a better MOBO runs all 6 cores. So my original problem was the motherboard limitation. This new PC runs this CPU with all 6 cores active and used. The second CPU I bought won't unlock the extra cores. It will always be a 4-core CPU only.
