Amd Phenom II 4 965BE trying to get 3.9Mhz Stable

here are my specs

CPU - Amd Phenom II 4 965BE
Mobo - GigaByte GA-870A-UD3
Ram - 6 Gigs
GPU - AMD 6850 xfx
CPU Cooler - Hyper 212 Plus

i currently have my cpu at 3.917.73Mhz(200Mhz /19.5multiplier) as for voltage i went from 1.400v(stock) to 1.456v
previously i ran a prime95 test for about 3 hours on stock voltage and i didnt BSOD but one of the Workers on Prime 95 reported hardware failure, i read around and people said to up the voltage so i am currently running prime right now 2 hours in looking good so far, but im browsing looking at other stable builds, and i see people down clocking their Voltage to 1.3v stable at 3.9mhz?

should i have down clocked my voltage lower than stock? or did i do the right thing by increasing it?

Forgot to mention temps.
my first run with stock voltage under load it was 55 degrees, now with my current voltage 56-57 degrees

  1. if down volt still stable is cool and good for your system, each chip will different get voltage

    i am currently still stable 3 hours in on prime 95 with my 1.45v, and i failed prime 95 with stock 1.4v 3 hours in should i have tried underclocking my voltages? or since my current voltage is stable i should just stick with it?
  3. yeah you keep at voltage wich give stable :), no problem as long as in fulload temperature not above 60C, and having been getting steady profile then save it in the bios, it would be easier if one day you have to go into default mode and switch to oc

    As he stated each chip is diferent as my 965BE clocked to 4ghz without overvolting some chips will fair better(less volts) some chips will fair worse(more volts) it all on the luck of the draw
