Should be able to try, no promise that the cores are good though, bios should have the relevent unlock option for you to play with

Stock its only an 80w chip so unlocking is unlike to push it over 100w, you on stock cooling or aftermarket?
stock will limit your overclocks somewhat but you can still get a couple of hundred Mhz on it

There is a reason why AMD locked those cores in the first place. You have a very low chance of getting those unlocked cores stable!

I'm one of them, two x3 435's unlocked and clocked on stock coolers, one to 3.5GHz, but there is no guarantee that you will be as lucky, if you want a quad, buy a quad is my advice, and my Mobo of choice is the M3a770de from AsRock for triplecore chips

does the ability of the mobo to unlock the cores simply depend on luck or on something else?

The cores may have been locked because they weren't stable enough, so if you aren't confident in tweaking settings in bios to get the best you can, then I would try to see if they unlock stable, if not the relock the unstable core/cores again and just overclock
