Your probably better off overclocking your CPU by editing the settings in the BIOS rather than having it done automatically. For my rig (Phenom x4 955) I simply raised the multiplier from 16 to 18 and bumped the voltage a tiny bit and have had a stable OC for over a year. Give us your exact CPU type along with the make/model of your PSU and it will be much easier for the experts here to help you out. Best of luck.

Sometime unlocking cores can cause the CPU to be unstable, hence the reason they were locked to begin with. Only sometimes can you unlock cores and not have problems. I would suggest either raising voltage a little to see if you can get stable. Otherwise leave them locked. I wouldn't raise voltage more than .125v if you still notice that you BSOD at the same exact spots. But of course raise voltage one notch at a time in til your total voltage is (stock) + 0.125v

More likely than not you'll prob need to lock the cores back to get your stability back.
