Ok, so I built my computer and I built it so it can be overclocked. I am going to go ahead and list exactly what I have and hopefully one or more of you can tell me how I am messing up here...


Case: Corsair 750D
MB: ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0
CPU: AMD FX8320E (0 stepping and unlocked)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H115i (idle temp is constant at 28*c)
Mem: Crucial Part number (BLS8G3D18ADS3.16FE) 8GB x 2 (16GB total) Memory modules are in the lighter blue slots.
GPU: ASUS R7 250X 2GB mem,
OS HD: Samsung 850 Pro 256GB SSD (Storage drives are WD Blue 1TB Sata 6GB, WD Blue 1TB Sata 6GB, WD Blue 500GB Sata 6GB)
PSU: Generic 750w unit

I am literally looking to overclock to 4GHZ. ASUS Ai will let it overclock to 3.4GHZ with auto tuning but anything above that and it shuts off and restarts. Annoying. I am running Windows 7 Pro 64bit. My question is how do I overclock this machine? 8 Cores, 16GB of memory, liquid cooling, good graphics... what's going on here???? The only two conclusions I can come up with is I need a new and 80+ certified PSU or my gear is crap.
