hi, i have a i5-2550k. my cooling is a h100i corsair mod, with two more 120 mm fans for pushing the airflow. the problem is, i want to overclock it higher than a 3.9, but in about 4 min i get the blue screen crash everytime. and 3.9 it never goes above 40 c even playing crysis 3. i just want to get it higher, but it never works. does anyone know why? does it have anything to do with my motherboard maybe?

its really frustrating because my cooling is fine. and i know i can oc more. its idle at 24 c and even at 3.9 never goes past 40c under the most stress. i even bought special oc thermal paste for my processor that take 2 weeks to idle. i read people overlcocking this chip to 4.7 and higher. why do i crash and 4.0 or higher. someone please give me some advice...?
