I need to know if I get a AMD Athlon II X3 440 Rana 3.0GHz 3 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Desktop Processor and unlock the 4th core, will it be compatible with my motherboard?

my Motherboard I am planning on getting is the BIOSTAR A770E3 AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

It supportd core unlocking, but what I am worried about is the power of the CPU. The MB supports upto 95 watts, and the CPU is 95 watts, but will it be more after I unlock the 4th core?
