And When I got to 4.000 the furthest I've ever got to was to the Desktop of windows 8. I started CPU-Z was JUST ABOUT TO PRESS prntscr and got
driver_overran_stack_buffer BSOD from Win8. Shut down right away. The temps have yet to exceed 46 C under a full load.
As for the stepping The image has it
. It's 3 RB-C3
Yea I see the stepping now, when I posted the CPUz picture didn't show up for me.
is the 3.9 stable @ stock volts? crash from prime 95 or an intensive game?
maybe take a picture of your bios? it should have Vcore option or "overvoltage" that should let you set a number or pick from a list of numbers.
do you know the 0x000000XXX code by chance? sometimes those will let you know what you have to change and/or whats causing the crash.
for my bios and OC I have an overvoltage setting so I could set a limit 1.45v, 1.5v, 1.55v that my CPU could use, if it didn't need the 1.55v it would only peak to what it needs, I would then watch HW monitor when in prime 95 or a stress test program and see how high the voltage would go, then I would set the voltage I would need for X speed.
also if you cant figure out your BIOS, I had a hard time with mine, you can try OCing with AMD OverDrive, its a friendly program where you can OC, change voltages and even test.
AMD OD also has an automatic overclock system where it will incremently OC your computer until it it becomes unstable, I tried it out and it gave me the 3.8 Im now using today after a month or two of fiddling around after that seeing if it could go higher.
