Windows 7: From AMD Phenom II X3 720 to AMD Phenom II X4 20

From AMD Phenom II X3 720 to AMD Phenom II X4 20

Apparently the CPU has been overclocked, but tends to revert back to AMD Phenom II X3 720 from time to time. The CPU is inserted in the ASRock N68-VS3 UCC motherboard. Does it reverting back means that the overclocking procedure is somewhat unstable or is it just a graphic glitch? Also, how better is a AMD Phenom II X3 720 to an AMD Phenom II X4 20 both @ 2.8 GHz?

I think your board unlocks the extra core on the processor, but that core is not stable enough to stay enabled.

Yes, apparently that is the case. The PC tends to shut itself down when one of the processor's core is unlocked via BIOS.
