I unlocked the other 2 cores and for the most part, it runs stable. OC'd it from 3.1GHz to 3.4GHz with the multiplier, but I get a few hiccups here and there with programs acting strange or not opening. I've tested the stability with P95 and it runs through just fine. I increased the CPU voltage to 1.328V in hopes to solve some of my issues, but it's still having a few problems. Are there any other things I can try before I deem one of the cores as unstable? I'm using a Biostar TA790GX A3+ motherboard.
