Overclocking AMD CPU

My Mother board has this capability of ''unlocking'' cores on my Athlon II X3 445, from 3 cores to 4... but the problem is, it resets the number of cores everytime i restart my pc... is there any way i can keep 4 cores unlocked at any time given?

Also don't forget that some of these cores are not open as they are Faulty, this is one reason they LOCK them in the 1st place.

Watch out for the BSOD's.

Yeh, but the Athlon II x3 4th core (on cpu) is fine and stable enough to run the system on... but it gets locked soon after i reboot... somethines it leaves me with only 2 cores running, at which point, windows will freeze at the logo, when the first red dot comes up.
