My System Specs

Default

Your temps are quite high. Apply new TIM and reseat the cooler. Also, how's your airflow? Do you have lots of fans in your 900? How is your cabling for the PSU? You have a lot of wires to manage with the PSU of yours. Also, I would go by what rjbarker posted for general overclocking settings. Start with max multiplier and work your CPU frequency up to whatever you can boot at 1.35 Vcore. Boot into Windows, run some P95, and if it fails, back off the frequency a bit. Check temperatures. Lower voltage if you have to. Some chips are duds in terms of overclocking. Just keep tinkering.
