ok so I have read multiple guides on how to overclock this cpu but my system either shuts down or freezes. Im stable as 4.2 @ 1.25v. when I try 4.4 @ 1.275 it boots into windows for like 2 mins then shuts down, am i missing something here. I have looked into change the cache ratio and voltage. also changing the cpu input voltage, but not to sure what setting to put it at. also cache ratio has a min and max when i change it to i change both or just max or just min. thank you for your input my specs are below.
