I did a post, but was not really clear. And i didn't get any help :( 
My specs: m5a88-v evo; Phenom 2 965 x4 black edition; g.skill 1600mhz 8gb (2x4) 8 8 8 24 34 t2; zotac gtx 650 ti boost. Thermaltake smart 530 80plus and a cm Hyper 212 evo with stock cooler and one more. Everything in a haf 912 with a 200mm fan in fron and 140mm in one side. (copypaste)-

Here running prime95 for heat with 21°c ambient temp:


BIOS:




I found it stable like that. But i cannot overclock it more than that.
I've had problems with vcore at automatic and in manual. It seems to work fine with offset :/ 
If i bump the multiplier by 0.5 i get bluescreen after some time running blend. It says something about a core failing...

Thanks in advance...

ps: i forgot to mention that this chip likes a lot of voltage, and i don't know if it is safe to add more than 1.40. It was working for a year with 1.47 and 1.50 spikes in auto.

Did you follow a guide or just messed with the settings?

Of course i've reading guides. I am kinda lost because there are many differents opinions. And every pc is different.

Precisely, this could be the max for your chip ;)

WTF :( 
Well, maybe yes. But i can't believe it can't handle more speed.
Maybe wasn't new when i bought it... and is dying somehow?

Well you should :p . Maybe you could achieve more mhz (3.8 or so) with a better mobo, but for your current setup this seems to be the max

I don't get what's wrong with my motherboard.
So, are these settings okey? should i flash my bios like last chance?

Try raising the Dram voltage to 1.55 and the CPU/NB to 1.3, the vCore just a bit and THEN try raising multiplier + 0.5

Thank you! i will try this.
I thought this set up was ready for 3.8. Is for that i didn't know what to do.

Well i got



I think that aatje92 was right and that is the speed limit of my chip QQ

Might be, could take voltages higher, but not sure it would be worth it

Of course not. Maybe is a memory issue? or bumping cpu/nb freq? ¦|

Sticks should be fine, can always test with Memtest - best each stick individually, maybe 4-5 passes on each (takes awhile)

Yep, i tested both memories with memtest when i bought them (both at the same time for 12 hours with any error). I meant to mess with memories configuration, timmings etc.

I'll ask again, should i flash the bios? i am to scared to do it. But if it is for the major good, i'll do it :p 
My current version is 215, and the actual is 17xx :/ 

Thanks for the help!

If your rig is stable and your happy with it as is, then don't worry, can always do it in the future - talk to friends etc who are into computing, the BIOS update isn't near as daunting or dangerous as it once was, think I do it a time or two a week, always check BIOS when I do a build or have a rig come in for repair or upgrades - it's no biggie......but if nervous, can lead to a problem...so do it when your comfortable
