Never ever ever leave voltage on auto. Thats just asking for a fried cpu

i've been having the same problem, that voltage can't stabilize. try setting CPU fixed frequency to 800.

do you have PLL overvoltage enabled?

lowering PLL from stock 1.8V have helped some people.

also make sure CPU current capability is set to 180%

lower Vcore with higher LLC have helped me work my way to a stable setting.

Just try different things, but always stay within what is recommended.

It was really just a one off attempt (that lasted about 5 minutes) to see what speeds this processor could reach. PLL overvoltage is set to Auto.

Thanks for the points above, I will look into into them.

I don't usually leave a processors voltage set to Auto when overclocked however all this last week after work I've been running all sorts of different voltage tests and monitoring the systems overall performance gains and losses.

FYI, I have another G3258 still boxed in the cupboard.
