Firstt of sorry for the sort of sloppy writing its late and my head had been hurting :)  Today I had decided to try and push my cpu to its turbo clock as a standard. So to do that i made the bus speed from 200 to 215 which made the base clock 4.192mhz i think, I used this for about a day everything seemed fine arma 2 seemed to run better bf4 also then later i saw csgo was crashing alot so i wanted to make sure it was stable so i run prime 95 and boom 5 mins 5 cores failed, I look. I am just thinking"hmmm maybe the clocks are just two high" but I look at the charts and boom, something i didnt want to see, the temps stayed lower then 65c but the frequency was through the roof, pic shows specs, What did i do wrong "p.s I am not a noob but i am not expert either if there is some major step i missed sorry :p "

looking again it looks like it almost auto clocked itself, i wouldnt dare but a bus speed that high with a 19.5 frequency

Best solution

You've simply made your system unstable. Also, assuming these numbers are correct your bus speed was 303MHz not 215MHz so I think you screwed up.

I suggest you don't overclock the bus. Overclock the CPU directly instead.

Your Motherboard is important so you can Google tips on overclocking that board, and also look at your manual. You may even have some motherboard software to help auto-overclock.
