Overclocking Phenom II 550BE help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've had my unlocked 550 overclocked as high as 3.8Ghz, but I needed to go back down to 3.6Ghz due to blue screens after running Prime95 for a while. What would the blue screens be about? I'm running with 19x200 (for 3.8Ghz).

Right now my CPU is at 3.6Ghz, Vcore - 1.4Ghz.

Also, my multiplier in the BIOS stops at 19. I can see above 25, but when I select 19.5 or higher, it goes back to [Auto]. My motherboard's a Gigabyte M85M-US2H.

I've given it as much as 1.475V. Right now I've had to bump up 3.7Ghz voltages to 1.450V as well.

My motherboard's always overvolting itself when I'm stressing the CPU. Right now I'm at 3.7Ghz and 1.450V and I can see the voltages climb as high as 1.488V.
