4th core you mean? Either way if thats the problem you turn it off. A proc overheating to the point of turning off the comp once isn't going to kill the entire proc. And thats what temp monitoring is for, if your trying to enable a core that was disabled from the factory and your not using all the monitoring software you can, then thats your fault.
