Hello So i've been looking at a lot of threads but none really seemed to help so I hope maybe some one can help with my motherboard cpu combination I want to get my 1100t to 4.0ghz stable but I can't seem to do it it jumps with the multiplier relatively easy to 3.8ghz but not any higher an help would be great, as i'm new to OC not sure what other info you guys would need just let me know also i'm using a Havik 120 cooler.

This might not have much to do with your OC wishes, but the 970A-D3 with the more limited 4+1 phase power shouldn't be overclocked with power heavy Phenom II x6's with no VRM cooling present...this is a significant reliability and safety issue.  There's absolutely none on your setup right now given the aftermarket tower heatsink for your CPU, and you shouldn't proceed until you can ensure that.

What should my next step be then? buy a new motherboard ? different cooler?

mobo

Or adding VRM cooling through heatsink or fan, which would cost less.  Although if you want to run a very stressful OC and frequently using 100% CPU (i.e. you edit HD video or compress files often), I could also recommend a new mobo for reliability/lower heat levels.

vrm heatsinks + a fan pointed at the should run under 40
