might be because your motherboard can only support 95W cpus. i know that when phenom dual cores unlock, their TPDs shoot up. just guessing.

Not sure what might be the cause of this particular issue.  Although, I should note, the Phenom II x4 B60 BE is by wattage levels a 125W processor (just like many other Phenom II x4s).... and this board is rated 95W due to the lower-end 3+1 power phase, it is not ready for a 125W processor, and you should disable this unlock if you don't want to lose performance.....
