Unlocked Amd Sempron 145 Second Core Using the Motherboard Default BIOS

I was browsing about the AMD Sempron 145 processor and I saw a query related to it saying that AMD has processors has a Core which is hidden from the user by default and if the user fiddles with the components then he may get access to it but by default it is hidden so I decided to test it on weather my Sempron can be unlocking and after some looking around the computer. I found out that their is a option given in the BIOS for unlocking the core. So I enabled that unlocking option and WOW! their is a second core. I just made my single core desktop into a dual core desktop running two threads simultaneously. But hey I also read that AMD found some fault in the core so they decided to hide the core from the general users. It is better to unlock the Core if you are doing some heavy number crunching which requires more than normal processor power.
I know where to find it and in future if I need it I will unlock it.
I am also downloading HALO 2 for testing the performance and in the past I played this game for hours for no reason.
