|It's not that its unstable in general, it's just that you won't be able to overclock your processor that much without it becoming unstable. With an unlocked core on that phenom x3 your overclocking will prob cap at 2.8ghz stable. The 4th core on the X3 is locked due to one core not passing AMD's thresh hold test which became the faulty core. If you just unlock the 4th core and leave it as is without any overclocking you should be fine, it's when you start overclocking with that unlocked core, that's when you start getting into unknown territory.|
