First of all I would like to say I am a beginner with overclocking. I have watched videos online and read forms on the specific CPU and motherboard. I have seen a lot of people achieve 3 GHz to 3.6 GHz. For some reason when I overclock my CPU (following the correct steps) I can’t get past 2.9 GHz whenever I increase the frequency by one it drops straight away down to 2.7 GHz, that’s even below the base clock 2.83 GHz. I am stuck and I wanna achieve the best performance as possible out of my CPU as I heard that it can do great things in gaming. please if anyone has any tips or tricks to help me successfully overclock my CPU.

My system Specs:

Asrock G31M-S
Core 2 Quad Q9550
8GB DDR2 800mhz (currently using 4GB)
Rx 460 2gb
600w PSU

I have watched that video many times and I am still unsuccessful overclocking my CPU, sometimes when I save the settings in my BOIS after I changed my frequency, my system restarts but it fails to boot properly, I would normally get the casual black screen. Sometimes if I’m lucky it will boot up normally or I would have to hold the power button shut it down manually and then turn it back on.
