Athlon 640 II x4 overclock to 3.6GHz

http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=351hjye&s=7

Yeah, is this stable or am I a retard? I probably failed, my first time oc'in, I tried prime 95, pc restarted.

I'm using the M4A79XTD evo, athlon 640, 8GB of ram and coolit eco A.L.C, check my system in the sig or wherever it is, sorry I'm a newbie

I'm new to overlocking and didn't really do this right, did I? What have I done wrong? I did this in bios . . . uhhh I forgot now because I changed to it to stock like 2 hours ago and got answers on yahoo answers to pour water on my pc to dehydrate it (lol ***?) so I came here to ask the experts, I just forgot my password.

Yeah I'm new here, dunno if this is the right place to post . . .

Am I doing the oc right? my vcore was @ 1.53v, uhh put it at stock at it went to 1.62 v according to h/w monitor but it was 1.42 in cpu z so I dunno.

Please help, thanks!

Sorry for the total newbieness and the terrible grammar.

Did you lower the multiplier on your RAM? At stock settings it should be at 5.33x. Lower that to 4.xx (I forget what the actual number is).

Ok, thanks!

waiiiiittttt

260 x 15 = 3900, 3.9GHz . . .

I'm confused now, isn't that too much?

How do I lower the multiplier and to what.
