everyone says I should be able to get 4+ghz with this revision but I cannot get past 3.8 without benchmark blue screens, no matter what i throw at it. And the people who say they achieve higher NEVER say exactly what all thier voltages are set at. If anyone could help me please please do. I can hit 4.3 with just normal operation and some gaming but with prime95 i get an immediate blue screen, thank you for reading this and I hope to be hearing from you soon. Just some specs on what I have
ASUS Crosshair III
955 BE C3 Revision
All air cool stock except a 4k rpm squirrel cage inlet (MASSIVE AIR FLOW)
Patriot BE 1600 MGHZ ddr3
WD Cav Black 1TB
Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.
1- Not all the people can get the 4GHz with the same specifications, I can get the 3.8 with 1.44V and x19 in the multiplier, but my mobo is a K9A2 Platinum and my 955 is a C2.
2- Are you OC from the BIOS or from AMD Overdrive?
3- Do you have the last BIOS version?
