How are you overclocking your CPU, are you using overclocking software that typically comes with the motherboard or manually setting it in the bios.

It doesn't look like a very healthy 24/7 voltage. My tip would be to drop the voltage to around 1.3v and try 4.2ghz and go from there. keep voltage below 1.4 for 24/7. Although 1.4 is fine also. but once you get to 1.5v range it isn't really worth it

You set it to 1.35v and it stays there (taking Vdroop into consideration). Same should go with your clock settings; you set your Multiplier to 42, 43, 44, 45, etc. etc. and it stays there. If you are manually adjusting these settings as stated and they are changing to something different other than what you saved them as then you have a problem.

Sounds like some bios auto-overclock setting is overriding your manual setting. Reset everything to defaults or see if you can disable whatever this "oc tune" is.

Yes, much better but still not a good indication of how hot it can get at full load.

Select Very High, run it and then see what your temps are.

Then to determine whether or not your overclock is stable you need to do a 24 hour Prime run. Except utilizing almost all of your ram. Select the Custom blend test and change the amount of memory utilized. Instead of 1600 MB, have it use about 90% of your memory. Eg. I have 8 GB of ram which is 8192 MB, so I would have it use about 7373MB. or to keep things simple you can just round it up to 7500 MB.

Run that for about 24 hours. If you get no errors or blue screens your overclock is stable.
