Recently I overclocked my FX-8350 with the help of another forum member and got it running at 4.8Ghz. I went into the AMD P-state settings and lowered the cpu voltage to 1.25v. Then I went into the over voltage settings and changed the cpu voltage to +0.300v. That gives me around 1.488v on full load. The system runs great and games are a lot smoother but it isn't fully stable running prime95/OCCT/AMD overdrive stability testing even when lowering it down to 4.7Ghz. Is there any other way to help the stability without raising the voltage any more. I also notice the NB frequency is 2200Mhz while the HT frequency is 2400Mhz. Shouldn't they be the same and if so, should I lower the HT frequency or raise the NB frequency? Any help would be greatly appreciated

Specs:
CPU - FX-8350/Liquid cooled
Motherboard - Biostar TA970XE
Graphics - PNY GTX 670
Ram - 8GB Gskill 1866Mhz
Power - Corsair 650w

Putting some 50mm or 60mm fans on the VRM can help.
