you should also disable cool 'n' quiet and AMD turbo boost technology.
disable C1E as well and also disable the SMART fan on your gigabyte board.
^ Actually going straight to the top may not be the wisest choice. At least take some steps. All chips are different, one might be totally unbootable at 4Ghz without 1.5V to the chip. Always OC each separate component one at a time (i.e. CPU before Northbridge). There is also absolutely no need to disable CnQ and no proof that it will hinder your overclocks (my 1055T 4Ghz 1.42V OC, which is considered excellent for this chip, runs with CnQ on), although it may itself stop working past 19x multiplier.
taking steps is always the best way ofcourse
it would be nice if he gets it stable instantly with a shortcut though.
when I had my Phenom II x3 720 years ago and overclocked it to 3.8ghz I had trouble getting it stable with prime and Linx with CNQ enabled. it failed in prime about 6 hours in. with CNQ disbaled it passes 16 hours+ prime95. that's just me though. after that I've always had cnq and c1e disabled with my overclocksEdited by jprovido - 12/1/11 at 3:56pm
