AMD FX 4100 Overclocking

I'm new so hey guys,
I have an AMD FX 4100 overclocked at 4.6GHz (Full specs below)

The thing is; I have had this frequency for a while now and wanted to push it a bit further as my temps are quite low (40 -50 C under load)

I game, render and edit videos and all is fine, however I was running Prime95 earlier and the worker threads encountered an error on the 3rd core

This only happens with stress tests, also the core clocks seem to dip sequentially.

System spec:
AMD FX 4100 @4.6GHz (Cooled with a Corsair H60)
AMD 6870
OCZ Agility 3 120GB
1TB 7200RPM storage drive
8GB DDR3 1333Mhz PYN RAM
Asus M5A78L -M LX
Evo Labbs 750 Watt PSU

On CPU-z it's saying my Core voltage is 1.476

NB, SB, HT, RAM all at defaults as far as I know, any help and/or guidance is appreciated

  1. As far as I can tell , my cpu is a 4170 which is the higher end of yours. My stock voltage is about 1.43V , I'm running at @4.4Ghz & lowered my voltage to 1.3V. Try lowering your voltages on your bios & disable " AMD Cool'n'Quiet " in the bios.

    Hope it helps mate :)
