Cannot Overclock My 965 BE past 3.6? Bad chip?

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
I have recently built my first rig with a 965 BE and I cannot get it past 3.6! I have a Hyper 212 Plus with Arctic Silver and my temps are fine even with a high ambient temp. I have my voltage at 1.472 just for 3.6ghz. I am really angry and am wondering if I just got a terrible chip?\

I would appreciate any help!

Thank you.
It is odd that your C3 hits the wall at 3.6ghz. Most can do 3.8ghz- 4.0ghz.
What mobo do you have?
