Hello,
I have Phenom II x4 955 black edition 3.20gz,
I overclocked it to 3.60ghz, and its very stable that way,
Motherboard : GIGABYTE 870A-UD3
GPU: MSI 460GTX 2GB overclocked.
Memory: 2X4 kingstone 8GB DDR3 1600
Case : Armor A60 + 5fans
And 620W Seasonic
I tested it 1hour with Prime program and reached max of 52c.[have scythe mugen 3 cooler]

However when I rise the multiplayer nor FSB any higher I get this blue screen error:

My bios settings:
1:

What do I need to change in order to increase the CPU GHZ without getting blue screens?
I'm almost sure its something with the voltages,
Thanks!

Bear in mind that increasing the FSB will also increase the RAM speed. Make sure your RAM is still running at the rated speed.

I think its okay

apparently not if you are getting blue screens. BSOD's are primarily memory related.

So what do I have to change in bios?
But, even if I will take the FSB to 200 and raise only the multiplay it will still show blue screen.

Here are some more details:

1648mhz RAM is enough to cause instability. You can try increasing the DRAM voltage to 1.55-1.6. Don't exceed 1.65V to be safe.

Secondly, increasing the CPU speed will need voltage. 1.325V is obviously not enough. Try 1.35V?

I highly recommend you go over some overclocking tutorials to familiarize yourself with the proper methods of OCing to avoid future issues.

This might be a good starting place:

Hi,
now its stable on 3.7GHZ
what further changes in voltages do I have to make?

If it's stable, none. If you're happy with your speed you should try reducing the voltage until unstable, then increase just a touch higher so that you reduce power and CPU wear.

If you want to go for more speed, it's the same thing. Increase the CPU speed, increase the CPU voltage when unstable. I explain all that in the guide I linked you.

Furthermore, I highly recommend you reduce the RAM multiplier until you reach your preferred CPU speed, to remove that as a source of error.
