Do you monitor your temperature? What is your load temp before the BSOD?
Around 55c until 60c, I don't remember exactly...

i've noticed that lowering my NB/HT clocks away from the stock multiplier gave me instability. (even if the lowered multiplier put me closer to the stock 2000ht/nb speeds)
i also tried running 1.7v to achieve stability at nearly 3.7ghz (PLEASE DON'T TRY YOU MIGHT BREAK YOUR CPU OR MOBO)
it was as unstable as 1.5v was at those speeds (wont even boot if i tried to change the NB or HT multipliers)
eventually only got the chip to run stable at 1.55v and 3.6ghz
here's a screenie of my 3.8ghz which eventualy resulted in BSOD



for some reason it still didn't heat up at all, even when stress testing. regardless of voltages. maybe my motherboard is faulty and isn't putting enough power into the socket? although my 8320e heats up like crazy, i also notice my phenom II on the same mobo barely heats up. (3.9ghz@1.5v and only 58C at the socket during stress tests)
can an open case and decent mobo along with 212+ really keep things this cool? (ofc i have all the power saving features off while testing OC)

must say unless you want to use the system for games that are over ten years old, or to watch 1080p movies at best, you're best bet it to buy a $40 phenom II and try overclocking it.
though it really depends on what you want to do, also be much more careful when trying to OC a quad core phenom II as it will surely suck enough juice to fry cheapo motherboards

I have stable 3,575MHZ ht/nb x8 @1.425v, and I did it wrong when I increase 3.8GHZ @3,5GHZ fortunately my mobo not burned
What is your mobo sir? You can increase voltage to 1.7ghz and not burned your mobo?

Hey I want to ask again, I want to little upgrade my PC, can my mobo ga-78lmt-usb3 1xpcie16 2.0 support rx460 pcie 3.0?

Yes. If it functions correctly, it will work. But do Not buy the 460, it is not worth the money. It is only slightly cheaper than 470, but is two times slower. Save up for 470 or 570 if you can. Else, 560 is the best option, if you can find it.

ok. thanks for your suggestion:)
