Ok so I'm having issues overclocking this chip from everything I've seen most people are hitting 4Ghz without touching the voltage. For me i have to bump it up to 1.4 core voltage for it to even run prime95 for any amount of time with out locking up right wawy. Ive tried just using the multiplyer at 20x Ive also tried setting the cpu at 211 and the multiplyer at 19 and still the same thing has to be at 1.4v to get anywhere. I've also noticed in CPU-z when at stock setting and running prime95 my core voltage hangs down around 1.23-1.245. Is this a bad chip, motherboard, crap PSU, Or am I overlooking somthing.
