I have NOT changed the voltage or anything, just went to 4.4ghz.
I have set the mainboard in the Bios to XMP settings.
Looking for a hand as im not sure what to do. On my old AMD, all i did was do the quick level up, and then prime 95'd it overnight. This seems to be a bit different.
Thanks in advance,
Hello, are you sure you put your paste on right? Also instead of using AI Suite to monitor I would use Real Temp. I'd also suggest putting your voltage higher, for my 3570k to hit 4.5mhz I'd have to clock @1.31V
If that doesn't work clear your CMOS and try overclocking from the BIOS.
Also I'm not sure which orientation your fans are facing but the best results are pulling in.
