Default AMD 400e Unlocking

Hey guys,
I recently put together a HTPC and decided to go with an energy effiecient cpu Athlon II x3 400e.

Just out of curiosity I managed to unlock the fourth core and stress tested my system for ~ 5 hours without any errors from the final core. After a few days of having it unlocked, every now and then as soon as xp boots up and my wallpaper comes on i will get the bsod. If I was to restart the machine it would all be normal. Do you guys think that this would be due to not upping the voltage??

The board im using is asus m4a785td-m evo

No I haven't. It's been everything stock except the acc and unleashing mode in the bios.

Try giving the CPU some extra voltage and see what happens. Very small increments until you obtain stability.
