i have a amd 6300 and ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS motherboard and a hyper 212 evo so i did a overclock on it the stock speed is 3.5 and i got it up to 4.3 with out changing the voltage the highest temp is at 55c so the over clock is stable to my knowledge i did a torcher test with prim 95 for 3 hours and no failed cores so shut off all the testing and everything so i was doing some web browsing thinking everything was fin the my pc crashed it rebooted but it didnt say my over clock was unsuccessful like it would if i failed it so im wondering what the problem would be any help is appreciated thanks

I doubt the multiplier bump alone was the culprit if it passed prime95 but crashed in your browser. (Although that is pretty high to go with no voltage increase) More than likely you have other issues. Run CCleaner and do the Clean and Registry portions both. That will clean up a lot of junk files, registry errors, and other resource wasting crap. Be sure to update your browser too.

Any other time it crashed?

My computer has only crashed once like this and it was after the over clock like you said but since the post nothing else has happened so i hope i was a one time thing and i will get the ccleaner to clean all my stuff but do you think i should raise the voltage a tad and if i do, do you think that would make it hotter cause if it does then idk if should do it because it not good to go over 60c as you may know and its already at 55c

Yes, increasing the voltage will increase the temp. I have never been a fan of raising the voltage if not necessary with unlocked multipliers. But I must say, most folks don't agree. After you run CCleaner to clean up many software issues, try it again. If it seems stable, you should be OK. Personally, I like to run the default 10-run pass with Intel Burn Test to check stability. It will heat up the processor more than Prime95. And it only takes a few minutes. It's not a substitute for Prime95, but it can determine quickly if your O/C is stable.
