I read the thread on unlocking the Sempron 140 (from Oct. 29, 2009) and I have a few questions relative to that line of thought. 1) Once the second core is unlocked, will it remain unlocked at the Athlon's normal clock rate or does it have to be overclocked to stay active? 2) Why doesn't the second core have its own L2 cache as the Athlon branded processor? 3) Why doesn't the multiplier unlock? I hope these are not dumb questions, but I am new at this kind of thing, but I learn fast. So, I would greatly appreciate any info I can get on this matter. Thanx!
