Little issue I've been having with a recent built of mine, my setup goes as follow: Asus P8P67 Mobo, Intel i5 2500k processor, 8 gigs of ram, CM Hyper 212 cooler and an ATI Radeon HD 5770 video card. I've managed to overclock my computer via the Ai Tweak settings in BIOS to 4.0ghz with no issues, all I do is adjust the core multipliers to 40x and leave everything else as is to pull off 4.0ghz. I started noticing a small, yet annoying issue, with my computer locking up when attempting to wake it from sleep mode any time that I try to overclock past 4.0ghz. I had my computer running at 4.2ghz for a while but begin to get quickly annoyed with the fact that every time I went to wake my computer up from sleep mode, it necessitated a forced shutdown. I can run stress tests and play games all day @ 4.2ghz while maintaining an average core temperature of 50 degrees and not have one single hiccup. The only time I ever experience a lock up when overclocked past 4.0ghz is solely when I'm bringing the computer out of sleep mode. I've attempted to disable and type of "S" sleep modes in BIOS to no avail, this seemed to work with others from research I've done but it definitely doesn't work for me. Could it be due to the fact that I'm not adjusting anything else besides the multiplier when I'm overclocking? If so, why is it that this issue isn't present when I'm overclocking via just the multiplier at 4.0ghz?
