Overclocking with an unlocked core.

Is the process any different? I unlocked my 4th core and it's 24 hours stable in prime 95 without an overclock. Also, speed fan is saying my core temp is 0C.

no you essentially have a phenom 940 on your hands..

Try overclocking it a bit, if it becomes unstable, go back down to 3

Core temperature sensors are disabled when you unlock.

From personal experience, the IMC might cry when you try to OC past a point (it happened on my X3 435). Tri-cores that are unlocked don't clock as high as they do if you were only running 3 cores.
