leave your IMC Voltage at 1.3, and just raise your vcore ti'll you get stable and make sure ur temps don't go over 85 degrees .

ok had to back off 4.0ghz the temps were getting too hot on the 4th core :/ and I just couldn't get it stable. Kepts restarting windows with the 124 error code. which means it wanted more voltage which I don't think I could have done since the temps were already getting close to 90c on the one core the rest were still under 80c so that one core was really holding me back.

trying to get stable on 3.8ghz it went a full hour on prime95 last night before I went to bed but when I woke up this morning it had restarted again so I guess it needs more volts im going to try and IMC of 1.30 and vcore was at 1.30 so I will raise it from there.

The H50 is not actually that bad of a cooler as many claim. Sure, it is not the best of coolers but it will get the job done for the majority of us. For the price it is certainly worth it. My temps topple out at around 68c after a twelve hour run of Prime.

Ajresendez, could you post a few pictures of your bios settings? You shouldn't need more than 1.3v to get to 3.8.

I can get some up after I run prime for another few hours. It's still running after 3 1/2 hours on IMC of 1.3 and Vcore of 1.31 seems I may have found a stable 3.8ghz oc. Going to let it run for a full 7 hours.

Ok so I've been running prime95 blend test for 7 1/2 hours and everything seems great. Going to let it run another 30 minutes to make a full 8 hours . I think I can make 4ghz but I'll need a new cooler which I won't have money for that for a month at least. I'll post up some pics of bios settings soon gotta eat right now.

Edit:
Thanks guys by the way for all the help.

After 10 hours of prime95 stable I would say.
