Secound try was OC it to 3.5ghz but just got a red warning on boot to run Bios setup or restore the last working setup
ill try later what happen with default cores.
in Speedfan, alot of boards, mine included, have a sensor reading in the negatives or over 100c, it's a false reading, dud sensor or another reason you get that.
It's completely normal for you to lose Core Temp readings when you unlock, in that case you have to go by temp1
. One of them is the sensor within the outer casing of the CPU itself, if you download Everest:- http://www.lavalys.com/support/downloads
it'll label that sensor as CPU
, if you re-lock the cores, you can then see the temperature difference between your CPU
and your now-working Core
, then when you unlock the Core/s again, you have a rough judge of how many degrees in difference those two temps are.
Also, regarding your max OC and Blue Screen, it could be related your your Memory Controller not getting enough Voltage, or your CPU-NB.
Try taking down your RAM frequency aswell, that might help.
Mine BSODs at 3.6, and I'm unable to put anymore Voltage into it due to my cheapo PSU probably on it's way out (7-8months old, been making noises at startup for about 4 months, lol), and don't wanna risk OCing my CPU or GPU 'til I get a new PSU.
