    Default xeon x5677 unlock to six core x5690?

    So I read the x5677 is a six core processor with two of the cores locked down. If I buy this processor can I unlock the two cores? I will be using a EVGA SR-2 Motherboard.

    If unlocking is possible would there be a down side to unlock a x5677 versus purchasing a x5680?

    unlocking in intel chips are definitely impossible...only their multipliers can be unlocked...
