I am having problems overclocking. If I manually overclock to 4.7 Ghz (Air Cooler), Prime 95 is stable, although I cannot benchmark using 3DMark or play games, because they will crash. I have brought down the multiplier to 4.4 Ghz and I am still having the same issues.

However, when I use the Enhanced Turbo feature, and bring all cores up to 4.3 Ghz (Max Turbo), everything works.

Am I doing something wrong in the BIOS or could it be my graphics card that is causing the problem, because it's pretty outdated?

Also, I have the same problem if I enable XMP. Any tips for this? Games will crash if I set anything above 2133 Mhz.
