Hi. Newbie here.

I have unlocked the second core of the AMD Sempron and it turned to the Athlon II X2 4400e Processor retaining the 2.7GHz. Everything went faster and better. Can I unlock the third one? I see in the options in the BIOS that I can unlock up to 4 or 5 more cores. Is there something that needs to be watched out? Like the temperature, voltages or something? Any possible downsides?

I would say that unlocking one is enough of a risk.
But no, I don't believe you have more cores to unlock. What is your exact Sempron product code???

sempron is the same die with athlon x2 version..

since athlon die just consist 2 cores (except athlon 210e, it was made from phenom die), it's imposibble to get more than 2 core processor from sempron..
