So I recently started overclocking my setup after fixing issues with my cooler. Everything was going well until I hit 4.6Ghz. 4.5Ghz was perfectly stable after p95 test with an offset voltage of 0.005 and a Turbo Voltage of 0.008. However whenever I set it to 4.6ghz, no matter how much voltage I increase it to, the PC just crashes at start.

Any thoughts?

Thank you for your help.

it only crashes with the oc? what is your voltage at?

undo the offset, and the turbo. try for just the manual overclock. then adjust those settings, after finding your happy place.

It Only crashes at 4.6 ghz, irrespective of voltage.

well you may have reached your window.

Again default everything in your bios. start with the basic oc. multiplier, and voltage. see if you can get the 4.6ghz to work after that. then apply your offsets, and what not's.

I found this litte guide, look it over.

Still dosnt work, still get bsod at startup, again no matter what voltage I put in at 4.6ghz. BIOS is fully updated.

BTW I'm running windows 8 so the BSOD's tell me nothing.
