A10- 5800K Overclocking

Right now I am trying to overclock my CPU, and all I can get it up to is 4400MHz, which is only 100MHz difference from stock. I have been reading articles about overclocking this CPU and people said that have gotten it up to 4700MHz and it being stable. I am using OCCT and if I try to get a higher clock (past 4400), it keeps stopping and says it detected in error in a core. Here is my system (I have a feeling that it might be my PSU, but I really have no idea)

Motherboard - ASUS F2A85-M PRO FM2

Memory - G.SKILL Value Series 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 CL9S

CPU - AMD A10-5800K Trinity 3.8GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W

GPU - MSI GTX 660 Ti OC

Cool Master Hyper 212 EVO

And the power supply came with my Rosewill Tower which is a 500w (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147081)

Please help if you can!

  1. Or you need to increase Vcore a little. 3.8GHz to 4.4 is not bad.

    Is Vcore the same as CPU voltage? Because I did raise that up a fair amount
  3. Yes it is. Are you monitoring temps as well?

    Yes but you want to be careful. Going crazy with the voltage and not monitoring the temps is a good way to fry your CPU.
