Hey guys. Im fairly new to overclocking (its my first time) and I dont know what I did wrong
I'm trying to overclock my a8-3850 from 2.9GHz to 3.6GHz

In the bios I set the Reference Clock (CPU Frequency) to 133 MHz
And the CPU Clock Ratio (Multiplier) to X27.0

It works great until I boot :p 
I start to load windows, blue screen, then the computer restarts.

Any help is appreciated!

I'm not sure sorry i dont have an APU but in most cases with a big overclock like that you might want to increase the voltage and i have also read somewhere that lowering memory speed can help with stability. you don't want to exceed 1.5 volts
