If your PC does crash, increase the Vcore in small increments.
Unfortunately my pc will not boot at 4.5 ghz. It goes to the BIOS option then automatically reboots. It continues this cycle until I go into the BIOS and manually change it back to 4.3 ghz.

I have a "dynamic" voltage setting in my BIOS, so I tried +0.08. This had my Voltage at 1.43 and I still was not able to boot. C3 and C6 were both disabled.

Different batch chip? What does that mean? Like the same model but with a faulty piece of hardware on it?
