I have the 965 BE. I read that you can get the blue screen when overclocking. I raised the multiplier to 19x and ran prime95 and the system just restarted, no blue screen. Should I maybe raise the voltage at this point?

after reading that,i was able to get my cpu to 3.8.ran prime95 for 8 hours with no problems.the thing i'm worried about is the high voltage.using cpu-z,the highest i saw was 1.456v.is that normal or should i reduce the speed?

you can get get to 1.5v on that chip ive never been a fan of running 8 hour prime test, a 2 hour test is enough,
what temperatures are you getting to?

Your load line calibration is set wrong then or what speed are you trying?
