Hey all!

I've built an AMD (i'm a big fan of AMD hardware) system based on FX-9590 CPU and i'm having some trouble to overclock it, trouble i mean my cpu can't reach higher then 4.7Ghz, not even to 5Ghz as should be in turbo.

if over 4.7Ghz reached my pc get unstable (stuck/freezes won't boot up and things like that) and not due high temperature.

I've tried to OC via bios, Asus software and even AMD Overdrive and i get the same results - unstable system

I ran of ideas guys maybe my bios settings are wrong to achieve OC, I'll appreciate your help with this matter


So my rig:

CPU: AMD FX-9590 4.7Ghz/5Ghz

MB: Asus Crosshair v formula-z ROG 990fx Bios is up-to-date

RAM: AMD Radeon R9 gamers series memory 2 kits or 4X4gb 2400Hz

Graphic Card: Sapphire Radeon R9 380 4gb X2

PSU: High Power 1000W

Storage: Irrelevant

OS: Windows 7 64bit


Let me know if more info is required

*Added pictures for full CPU Specs


Thanks in advance guys hope we could figure this thing up cuz i'm dead curious about it lol
