Were you using any software to monitor your temps? How about any burn-in tests? More to the point, what made you decide on the configuration that got you 3.8 GHz?

When you reply, please post the settings of your OC.

I was using CPu-Z to monitor. No burn in tests though. Never really thought about it! :/ 
I was just slowly upping the ratio and fsb till it crashed then brought it back down.

OK. Your post suggests that you didn't touch any voltage settings. If this is true, then your stability can be increased by raising vcore, but first try this:

1. Raise the FSB until failure again
2. Set RAM to specs shown on the side sticker
3. Disable Cool n Quiet
4. Raise vcore by one level. Some BIOS allow you to press the "+" key; some require you to use the up/down arrows. Either way, just increase vcore by one level (key stroke) at a time.

If this doesn't help, there may be need for additional steps. You may need to adjust the Northbridge multiplier; you may even need to lower your RAM frequency.

Edit: To make this clearer, increase vcore one step at a time and test the OC settings in Windows. To test for stability, download, install, and run Prime95. Run this test on blend for about 1/2 hour.

Okay.
So This is where im at now:
3.885Mhz (3.8Ghz)
18.5 Multiplier
210 FSB
1.40v to the cpu

Should i keep pushing it??

What kind of temps did you have on that last run you posted? Was it completely stable?

raise vcore to 1.44-1.45 , you use X6 at 3.8Ghz ... try it and test use IBT for shortime just 30minutes and use Prime95 for Longtime 8hours minimal

My temps have not risen over 40* for the cpu yet.
So i hit a ceiling just now.
The blue screen of death. These where my settings when i hit the screen:

4.06Ghz (4066Mhz)
19.0 Multiplier
220 FSB
1.4125V Cpu

scared the Sh** out of me, never had that blue screen!
But i lowered the multiplier and FSB back down to the ones from above post and it recovered just fine. Im going to try and raise the Vcore to 1.44 with the 19 and 220 right now...

UPDATE: I ran Prime95 at 3.8Ghz with the accompanying settings i mentioned, and it gave me the blue screen of death. So i rebooted and upped the Vcore to 1.450 and it succesfully booted again.




OK Another UPDATE!:

After these screenshots i attempted to watch a youtube video and another Blue Screen Raped my monitor.
What is the reason my computer crashes anytime something even mildly uses the CPU? Do i not have enough voltage to the cpu?
And why does it mention a memory dump? should i be worried?

The Most Current specs:


Im a bit nervous to run the prime95 right now...

You need to back up and stress test at a reasonable setting. Set it to 3.7 and then run prime95 until your temps level out or you crash. If you BSOD, up the voltage a bit and repeat the stress test. If it passes, up the frequency, test, repeat, etc.

I use 1055T can get 3.8ghz with vcore 1.44 , cpu nb 0.025, nb at 2800 he he very stong corevid1.32v, vdim at 1.58V .. I you can get 3.8gjz use 1.40 it's very very good

Look at both sides of your RAM modules. Notice that one side has a white sticker. On this sticker you'll see some specs. Make your BIOS match these specs for your RAM.

BSOD is typically the result of some problem with your RAM. First set your RAM to the specs shown on the sticker. If after you've increased vcore (not to exceed 1.5v) you still get BSOD, try lowering the RAM frequency.

Remember, your actual RAM speed is the bus speed multiplied by the RAM multiplier (or ~ratio).
