You don't know what's wrong with the fourth core, maybe it's a subtle flaw that might not make the core broken at first, but make it more prone to breaking, or it might have a subtle flaw that might only show up once every X calculations.

It's a gamble.
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
