If you are upping your FSB then your RAM is also being overclocked. You are going to have to lower your RAM multiplier in order to keep it at it's stock frequency. You may be getting some instability from that.

my motherboard says my ram is at 1500mhz and its stock speed is 1600mhz so its underclocked.

Hey Kirby it's a little hard to tell where you are at or what you've tried. I see in the CPU-Z shot you made it to 4.3 so I'm just assuming you are having troubing getting stable at 3.2 or past.

Just at a quick glance I can tell you that QPI/VTT at 1.1v probably is a large contributing factor. For 4.3 I'd guess you'll need closer to 1.3v on that uncore voltage.

Also that lower (1.5v) RAM might need a little extra push.

Also turn turbo off and use the 21 ratio. Or 22 at most but 21 would be your best bet. Anything over that and you are only using two cores.

Board looks like it might run hot and not so much built to be a clocker but you should be able to get 3.5-3.6 at stock volts so I doubt it would be too much of a problem. I'm not so sure how much extra voltage I'd be willing to put threw it if it were mine but it isn't.

For more info you could try miahallens guide to Lynfields : http://www.techreaction.net/2010/09/...ide-lynnfield/

Actually this is all you have to do:
Set everything back to stock. Once you're at stock raise your FSB by 5 and run IBT for 5 runs. If it passes then go back to the bios and raise your FSB 5 again and repeat. When it no longer passes raises your vcore one increment then boot back in and run IBT. If it passes then go back and raise your FSB by 5 and continue. When you get to the point where you need to raise your vcore about 4 increments then raise your PLL voltage one increment. After that go back to the FSB.

this pics of the bios I posted are not from me, I just found them online.

So if I should be able to do 3.6 on stock voltage then should I set it to this:

21x170 = 3.57 stock voltage
vtt = 1.170
Dram = 1.6 1700mhz

This mobo has no PPL voltage settings

I'm pretty sure it does but it may be labeled under something else or in a different location. I've only used a Gigabyte bios once but it was an AMD board and I'm not too sure about it.

What else could it be?

It has these settings : Dynamic Vcore (DVID)
QPI/VTT voltage
PCH Core
DRAM Voltage
