Hi , i tried to overclock my fx 8370, went through the steps of switching to slow mode on msi 990fx, also disabled the turbo at the bios, and at startup i ran msi control centre, the speeds were at 1.4Ghz for some strange reason nd not at standard 4.0Ghz... and when i set the speeds to 2.1Ghz from the 1.4Ghz my screen started flashing and didnt want to stop. even when i used amd overdrive, i disabled turbo and set it from 4.0ghz to 4.1Ghz and i got a flashing sceen... i have no idea why.. please may you help me. thanks
