    Default GA-MA790XT bios where is ACC?

    Hey guys i am reading that its possible to enable the 4th core on some triple core processors.. Phenom II X3 - Enable and unlock the 4th core

    I am using a triple core right but can't seem to find this feature on my motherboard. Its called "Advanced Clock Configuration" Do you guys know where i can find this feature in my bios.

    Is there a hidden key like ctrl-f10 or something to unlock more features in the bios.

    I am using the new AM3 motherboard GA-MA790XT-UD4P with DDR3.

    Thanks

    The hotkey is Control + F1 on the MAIN Page of the BIOS, the screen will flash, then you go into the various sections to look for hidden settings. This may or may not be necessary, and your BIOS/Board/CPU may or may not support this feature.

    What Exact CPU do you have anyway? Did you check the stepping #'s of your CPU as outlined in that page?

    You may need to wait for a BIOS update to support this feature. If I were you, I would shoot off a email to tech support asking them to pass along this info to the BIOS engineers and ask that they include this setting in your next BIOS update >>>

    *EDIT*

    I did just look in your BIOS and I DO see this setting at the top of the MIT Section, I looked in F2 BIOS. I do not see this in your manual, but it is in the BIOS so it may be hidden and you will need to use the Hotkey, see it is at the top >>>

    I have the ga-ma790x-ud4p MBO with F5a bios and can not find ACC. When I hit F1 at the main screen the bios does add "Advanced Chipset settings" but there is no place in there that refers to ACC.

    Any suggestions for me. I would like to activate the 4th core on my 720 BE.

    Thanks
