See the ram is set to 1600mhz.
But it reads on everything besides cpu info. Cpu info shows 800 mhz.
What about stable 4.0 ghz?

It's normal. DDR means Double Data Rate so what ever you see in CPU-Z multiply by 2.
4 GHz should be no problem with your setup at near stock voltage. Try at 1.47v, hope you have a good CPU cooler. As soon as you start upping the voltage it gets hot fast.

Everything started locking up at 1.47. I took it down to 1.43 at 4.0 ghz.
Ram is at 1600mhz
temp:
idle: 31C
prime95: 42C

No errors on prime95, but I only ran it for 20 minutes.

Changed my timing on my ram to 8-8-8-24

Seens pretty fast, but I just have to wait and see.

i got the same chip n i have it stable at
CPU 4.1Ghz @ 1.488v
CPU-NB at 2600Mhz @ 1.2v
RAM at 1600Mhz CL9 @ 1.5v(stock) cant get it lower to CL7 no matter wat i do
i got it stable at 4.2Ghz @ 1.56v or1.58v my the temps are really high, at 4.1Ghz my max temp is 61C after 30 runs of linx problem size 30000 and n hour of p95

here are something that might just help you stabilize your clock

overclock one component at a time so that you can easily troubleshoot the problem
disable all the power saving features such as col n quiet CE1 SVM etc
disable the cpu, pcie and other spectrum
keep the eyes on the VRM temps you got a decent motherboard but the VRMs are not cooled help your self to something like THIS for more info of VRM here read THIS and THIS
keep the temps under 62C (55C is wat i prefer)
keep the CPU vcore under 1.55v (1.5v max for 24x7 OC)
keep the CPU-NB volts under 1.35v if temps ok then 1.4v (usually the CPU-NB scales really bad after 1.35v)

here are a few guides that might help you

4.2 at 1.56
nb- 2600mhz
timing 8-8-8-24 set at 1.6 (default ram volts)
everything disable power saving wize

idle temp 32-36C
Prime95 Temp: 42C
Still getting a error on the last two tests but everything still running fine.
I get a hardware failure.

But, I feel like its getting closer. This is my day off so I finally have time to play around with it.
BSOD with 4.1 settings.


Update:
So, I used 1.488 + 4.0ghz
so far stable.
No errors, temp max 48C

I can't get it past 3.6 ghz stable, so I just gave up.
Im at 3.6, 1.45 volts.

try bumping the CPU-nb by 0.5v

try opening the AIDIA 64 n see the VRM temps stick a 40mm fan on them n pls you cpu maybe cool but due to heating of the VRM the overclock must be unstable
