Interesting my vcore states 1.40v and it says max is 1.40v.

Here are the temps:

Intel Pentium E2140 hardware monitor

Temperature sensor 051°C (125°F) [0x30] (core #0)
Temperature sensor 151°C (125°F) [0x30] (core #1)

HDD 46°C

Now im starting to think its the temps that are causing it to crash since its reaching 62°C when playing Aoc. But when i alt+tab it drops down to 58°C Also it seems that my vcore dropped to 1.39v now

That isn't an effective way to load up the CPU. Try OCCT. If it restarts during that then heat is the issue.

I think you might have to invest in some aftermarket cooling to push further. The freezer 7 pro is a cheap and cools fairly well. The Xigmatek Rifle is about the best cooler under $40 and will perform considerably better than the freezer 7.
How long did the test run for before it stopped?

He's right. You can't expect to overclock an E2140 that high and have it hold up with stock cooling. The temps are just too high. It will shut down automatically to protect itself. And get the Xigmatek he recommended. It's a lot better cooler.

What if it freezes? That happen alot more times then it rebooted. Either way cooler is something i need to get.

Even so..If its getting to temps >70*C in less than 1min, you have cooling issues that need to be sorted to even keep the 3ghz overclock, let alone push further.
