Windows 7: AMD Phenom II X4 965 HELP!

AMD Phenom II X4 965 HELP!

I just got my new Ripjaws X series RAM in the mail today. After I had installed it cpu-z read the wrong timings and frequency so I quickly set it up properly in the BIOS. That worked fine. Next I attempted to bump up the target DRAM frequency in the BIOS and it wouldn't boot, so it defaulted back, fine. The problem is now my processor is only displaying 3 cores!?

CPU-Z, Device manager, Windows CPU gadget all show 3 cores and the core voltage has been bumped up.

How do I get all 4 of my cores back and what the hell happened?!?!?!?

Problem solved, apparently my BIOS is allowed to change itself, it thought disabling the 3rd core would a cool idea. Bit late for April Fools ASUS -.-
