You have to try to find your CPU limits, and the guide just help you to understand how to do it.

EDIT: "When I boot my PC, it automatically turns off, waits 3 seconds and turns back on." Your computer stays in loop doing this or just happened once? Because after change the bios settings its normal, the pc turns off for 3 sec and then turns back on.
It only happens once every time I start up or restart my PC.
"It turns on. Turns of right after turning on. *3 seconds of pause* Properly turns on now."

Okay, I put the multiplier up to x22.5 so I have 4.5 GHz now.
I set the vcore to 1.405 since I couldn't do 1.4 because it only gives me a +0.025 increment option.
So yesterday when I loaded the recommended settings the "It turns on. Turns of right after turning on. *3 seconds of pause* Properly turns on now." problem stared occurring.
But now when I overclocked it to 4.5 GHz this problem does not occur anymore.
What the hell?
Anyways, which tests should I run now.

Good, your oc should be stable now, try to run prime95 for 2 hours and check if some error will appears, but pay attention to your temps.

My next problem..
At stock clock.
BF4 FPS:80
RUST FPS:80
After overclocking to 4.5ghz.
BF4 FPS:40
RUST FPS:20
What could cause this?
I went back to stock and fps is fine now.

check if your cpu clocks are fluctuating, right click your clock speed on cpu-z and it will show what all your cores are running at, lets say your ingame and you see it saying 4.5, but when you right click, 2 or more of your cores are at idle, which is gonna kill your performance, i ran into this myself.

disabling APM and keeping temps in check solved it for me.

Probably this is your best bet.
If it doesn't work, try disabling the cores that are idle when running those games.

I did not find a APM option in my BIOS.
Haven't checked if some cores idle tho yet.

Did you search on the Power Manageament section on your BIOS?

For me its called APM Master Mode.

Go to M.I.T, disable 'Core Performance Boost' to disable Turbo and then go to 'Advanced BIOS Feature' options and disable 'AMD C1E Support' and 'AMD CoolnQuiet'

There are no APM on the BIOS, but you can try go to 'PC Health Status' and disable 'Hardware Thermal Control'. All the things I tell you is to disable any throttling so you need to really sure you monitor the temperature well before proceeding. If your temps are fine you can proceed.
