    Default Phenom II upgrade from dual to quad core? need to reinstall win 7?

    If I upgrade from a dual to quad or a six core, will I need to reinstall windows 7 or will it pick up the extra cores?

    I've tried to unlock my dual and it ain't happening. They're duds. It's a nice OCer ( 3.2 to 3.8 GHz ) but eventually when the prices come down a bit, I plan on grabbing a quad or 6 core.

    Thanks in advance for any tips.

    cheers,
    World F

    No, you won't need to do so. But, I'll update the Motherboard's BIOS first before upgrading the CPU.
