I just got a new CPU that is a AMD Phenom II 720 X3 and I have an ASUS motherboard that can unlock the 4th core. I have kep enabling the 4th core over and over and it always runs stable and never complains at all no matter how many stress tests and of all types. Did I get a stable 4th core on my X3?

It goes to 49C max temp and never over on a stress test of prime95. I can overclcok to 3.0GHz from 2.8 and it's still perfectly stable and cool.
