My System Specs


Are you monitoring your CPU VID? Most AMD chips should stabilize at 4ghz around that voltage, you should be stable considering your board appears to have fairly robust power delivery.

Open up CPUZ then fire up prime95/LinX and look at your VID. If it drops, take note of how much and compensate for that in your BIOS settings. If it's too big of a drop, (requires more than 1.5v set in BIOS) enable LLC. (load line calibration) Keep in mind that LLC will enable higher current and sometimes buffer your CPU with a higher voltage than what you set.
