What voltage are you running, what speed, how does it crash? Give more info if you want help

Don't use the software, you will get better results through BIOS. I would suggest putting everything back to default and just bump the multiplier one step at a time. Download prime 95 test for like 10-15 min. Also download core temp. Keep track of your temperatures and as you bump your multiplier take note at what speed it causing it to crash. At the point start increasing your Vcore one step up at a time and repeat the prime95 and temp tracking. Once you get it at a speed you are happy with run prime at least 5-8 hours to make sure you don't have any problems like crashing. Whatever you do, don't go past 1.55 on your volts and make sure you have an aftermarket cooler before overclocking that will help with cooling. Also fill out your pc specifications like you see at the bottom of my sig that away we know how to help you better

i have a little experience with overclocking with bios but when i try to adjust something in the bios( even down) the pc works fine until it asks me if i want so save the configuration i just have i done, after that shall my pc restart but the screen remains black, it have something with a block on the motherboard i think.

This is not a motherboard that I recommend you overclock on, due to the very high possibility that the VRMs go boom while you do so...

Seriously. Do not overclock on that motherboard unless you like fire. The 4+1 Phase design isn't good for overclocking a Thuban.

Did you have the correct settings for your ram. You should be running at 1600Mhz. You must have it set to auto in the bios.

A properly cooled 4+1 phase with the right transistors can push a Thuban [not as optimally as an 8+2 or 6+2 but not unsafely either]. The problem with this board is the use of low quality transistors and lack of protection method. This board is not to be used with high-TDP AMD Phenom II 6-core CPUs or 6 or 8-core FX CPUs (though Phenom II x4s often don't have the problems).

THe 890FXA-GD65 had 8+2 phase... and I've done 4.5Ghz on a cheap 4+1 board. No fire nor explosions.

I'd say set voltage to 1.45 ish, and set multiplier to 20x200fsb, stress test.
If's it's stable lower the voltage a bit until it is unstable and if you want, tweak the fsb and multiplier.
