I'd tell you to add voltage, but by no means should you be overvolting a 125W on an unheatsinked 4+1 power phase (google or search OCN about "power phase on AMD" and the importance of using an 8+2 with good mosfet cooling with anything 125W) and tower hetasink. Get a better board (or mosfet heatsinks) first before going any further.

Good for mATX or low-wattage processor applications, but not for overclocking or unlocking and not for high TDP processors.

The people in the reviews are probably running it with lower end Athlon II processors in which case it's an excellent board. I don't deem this board 100% fit at all to run a Phenom II quad core unless at stock speed and with the stock cooler, and I don't deem this board fit for overclocking that much either. This is due to the weak power phase which can be dangerous to use overclocked on high TDP processors (unstable power, risk of fire). A lot of people here such as me have a rule of thumb to pair high TDP processors with 8+2 power phase only; some additionally have a rule of thumb of always using some form of mosfet cooling.

But the 720 BE is a 95W chip, but once unlocked is another story though.

i wouldn't be scared to bump it to 1.4. i ran my 880g at 1.45 with no issues...not that you should.if this is the board ,it supports 140w.

You probably have a faulty core. You could try bumping the CPU-NB voltage but it may not work. When I unlocked my chip to a quad it booted right into Windows. I did have to bump the CPU-NB voltage up from 1.12 to 1.22 to get things stable.

Yeah it says that and it's true but what they don't tell you is that is stock 140W
140W quickly turns into 200W+ once the CPU is overclocked.

OP get some heatsinks on it and you should be ok.
