Ok now I don't have a 965 but I have a 955 and I successfully OC it to 3.7 ghz with a 1.375 Vcore. I only changed the CPU multiplier and the Vcore. If that helps. But could you tell us what your CPU cooler is that would be helpful. And also how high do you want to OverClock ?
Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.
My question: What cooler do you have?
I can't understand somethings in your rig, even that here are some advices.
1- Disable Cool'n'Quite 2- Disable C1E 3- Change the CPU voltage from "Auto" to something around 1.3V and test the rig for stability. You can use y-cruncher, prime95, LinX or OCCT for do that. Let me know that temps that you get, with HWMonitor you can know that too.
