Greetings! Decided to try my luck at overclocking my CPU. Im using ryzen master on an ASRock hdv 4.0 board. I know this board isn't the greatest. I tried 3.9ghz @ 1.25v and played Forza 7 with it that way and it was fine. Temps were same as stock (even tried 4.0ghz at 1.3 and was fine, couple degrees warmer). But when I went to run cinebench 15 it crashed. So I went up a few steps at a time in ryzen master til this didn't happen. Wanted to try something a little tougher on it so tried realbench. Runs fine for a bit then crashes. Even tried 1.3v and seemed to make it a bit longer but still crashed. With temps not seeming to be an issue (71 on realbench) I'm wondering if this motherboard is just too crappy to be trying this on. Here to learn 馃檪

Check the mounting of CPU cooler. Are you using stock or aftermarket?
Also check bios updates & chipset drivers.

Watch your VRM temps, the cpu will be fine with that voltage but if the mobo is a bit "disabled" you may want to aim an extra fan at the vrm's or at least check their temps in something like hwinfo64.
