If I try to OC my Phenom usually I freeze then when I restart I don't get a video signal forcing me to Clear CMOS.
And I have the same CPU! -_-
Maybe you both have different board revisions, there are 3. The hardware revisions and bios would have a big impact on overclocking

Fair warning, I'm not entirely an expert when it comes to voltage adjustments ( or overclocking in general for that matter lol)
It is *possible* that the boards VRM design is not maintaining a stable voltage at 1.4v, and that the VRMs are getting too hot which can cause instability. That would be my guess as to why someone should try a lower voltage. Dont know if it will work though. The board should be capable of handling anything up to 1.45v perfectly fine since CPUs from back then that this board is compatible with would sometimes come stock with a 1.45v VIDEdited by EniGma1987 - 11/16/12 at 9:13am
