Amd fx 4130 help overclock

Hi i got a fx-4130
-asrock 960gm-vgs3fx motherboard
-corsair 600w power supply
-gigbtye radeon 7970 1000mhz overclock
- corsair h55 cpu water cooler
-Team Xtreem Dark Series 8GB 99924 1600mhz 1.65 volt memory

When i overclock to 5, 10 or 15 percent in bios when i run a prime 95 the Core multiplier drops from 19.5 to 7 and thus makes my core very slow it fluctuates between 3999mhz and 1600mhz. This of course is at stock 3.8. Also the Asrock 115%x boost doesnt work my ps doesnt start. HALP ME
When i try amd overdrive with cpu i do the test and it will freeze/reboot and not complete the test. Note Max cou temp is 50 degrees Celsius and Minimum 38 degrees

i Love anyone that can help me, should i rma my processor or motherboard or psu? i lag in skyrim when i shouldnt on 3.8

I have quiet and cool turned off
Cpu overclock voltage on 10%: 1.45 15%: 1.55 my motherboard is 1.55 max i played with other settings and nothing seems to work what should i do, this processor and motherboard should have ok overlocking potential...........

    I've never trusted asrock boards, I sudgest trying a Gigabyte or Asus or Biostar board. Try setting the multi manually if you have that option, then try to set the FSB manually, +1 then reboot and stress test.
  2. Make sure you enable the option in your BIOS to allow you to overclock, like it says in page 32 of your manual.

    Use this as a guide:

    Don't push your motherboard too hard. It might not be able to handle it.
