Hello guys i need some help overclocking for some reason my config is giving me rough way to go.

Ive got an ASrock Z77 Extreme 3 mobo, i5-3570k and a H-80 CPU cooler.

I can get to 4.2ghz without touching the voltage on the CPU but anytime i change the voltage i cant load into windows at all, it will get to the windows symbol and just freeze, im using a Samsung 840 250gb SSD as my boot drive so i load stupid fast. But i never can get into windows.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Well what voltage are you putting in when it crashes? and do you have it on auto, when you say you haven't changed the voltage?
