I: Annoying little things like this keep cropping up.

I have always ran a HTT OC with my SSDs and never had any issues. This is the first I've of heard of this (ref clock+SSD)
SSDs in Raid 0 (2 yrs+) or running separately made no difference, were left unaffected after years of this use. I still run the very same SSDs in a couple others rigs even today.
Note both the Ref Clock and CPU/NB freq. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

A bad OC doesn't matter if it's a multiplier only or HTT OC can/will corrupt an OS. The issue is when you increase PCIE above 100.
Unlike many other members I always test/pass 24 hr of Prime95 on all my OCs before running them 24/7. You'd be amazed how many times I've had a test fail at the 21st hr of P95.

The dip in performance is usually a sign of being stable (hopefully) but settings not optimized for said Ref Clock setting.
Dram timings play a big part as well. Tighten them suckers up biggrin.gif
It takes time (lots of it) to optimize. This is why we always stress to make only small/tiny changes and retest. The higher the clock the more critical this becomes.
Here is my favorite "How To" OC guide for Phenom II, especially when it comes to the order, or method of which things are done (and why). http://www.overclock.net/t/525113/phenom-ii-overclocking-guide

If you really want to get a nice boost from those SSDs give this a read http://www.overclock.net/t/682489/official-asus-crosshair-iv-formula-extreme-club/11980#post_16950618
I also ran this mod for years myself and it's still running the mod today as my sons gaming rig. It allows use of the newer SATA chipset drivers iirc.

Make sure to check in Windows that power options are in place. Might want to check Advanced settings too.

Tried to tighten the RAM timings and got a Non BSoD restart and a WHEA error about Cache Hierarchy. I think I'll just stop messing with it and go back to the settings that looked like they where gonna work before I started mucking with stuff again. Next thing you know I'm gonna get "OVERCLOCK FAILED" Bios messages and have killed the board or something with how smooth this has been. I:

21 hours in and WHEA error about cache heiarcy again. Seems it ties into RAM a little, but it's probably got more to do with the core.

I'm at the edge of thermals for the cooler, so I guess I'm backing it off a notch. I'd really hoped that it would stick.

You're more likely to achieve the clock if you're under water. On air, it isn't likely. Not sure what you're running.of course since I'm on my mobile atm. wink.gif

Just a Hyper 212 Evo. Nothing amazing.
Probably should move into Noctua If I'm sticking with air. A couple of DH14 near me for $70, should give me another 7 degrees to play with.

But Yeah, While I could probably sneak in more voltages and ride near 4.1ghz, I'm okay with the 4.0.

Hey will the crosshair IV run two 8gb sticks of RAM or do I need to run 4 4gb sticks? It's my old build now but I need to get it a little better so my cousin can use it till we build him a newer one.

Two 8gb sticks work well. I have a pair of 1600 Dominator I ran in.mine without much issue. Though I did have to activate the Go!Button to get the board to POST because 8gb sticks did not exist prior to the CIVFormula QVL iirc. thumb.gif

You won't be able to run more as the board will be maxed out for memory. tongue.gif

I've just upgraded my cpu. Phenom II 965 to FX-6300 (BIOS v.3029).

Well, after this upgrade my GPU is overheating and losing the signal video after a few minutes. It's happening during BIOS config and after/during Windows 10 boot. Fans are at 100%. (ASUS EAH5870 1GB).

I'm not sure what parameter of BIOS is causing this. I have tried it with default BIOS cfg too.

PD. My NB temp is over 75ºC in idle.

Stock NB/SB heatsink? Likely need to do the standoff modification to close the gap between chipset and heatsink. CIVFormula was shipped with incorrect NB standoffs. Think of the issue like an Intel chip needing a deli to keep the Temps under control. Only on a mb. I'm actually quite shocked that your board is not shutting down when your NB hits 65c, the way it should be. But that could be directly due to the updated BIOS lacking the proper safety measures. I would contact ASUS and have them look over that BIOS and check to see where that issue occured. NB chips with proper cooling should go no further than 60c. I changed out with an EK chips block and mine goes no higher than 55c.

So if you're running stock cooling I would do the standoff mod. Change the SB standoffs to the NB an keep an eye on temps. If it lowers sand down the female side to match the ones swapped to NB. Reset the standoffs and mod is done. thumb.gif

Thank you @Ceadderman. The fact i can't understand is why, with my Phenom II 965, all were working fine. The overheating problem appeared on GPU after the FX-6300 upgrade.

PD. Last time that Windows 10 booted, GPU-Z was showing 103ºC on GPU @ ~1.20v

PD2. CPU/NB ran @ 70ºC easily while I was in BIOS. The heating problem with the GPU is happening while you stay in BIOS too.
