4.5? Fine~ easy. Reset your settings to default. Leave voltage on auto. Everything, completely default. Ok? Restart the system once your BIOS are back to where they were.
Then change your multiplier to 45. Then come back. Make sure you have CPU-Z, Prime95 and Coretemp (or Realtemp) installed. Literally, that's all you're going to do. Change the multi, and then log into Windows.
You're overclocking one of the easiest processors in the world to OC. It's actually a little ridiculous.
