Hi guys i overclocked my cpu and motherboard recently to release the bottleneck on my ram and gpu, aswell as trying to get fps up in games. I was able to achieve a fairly stable overlclock and gain a massive performance boost in games, however the game would occasionaly crash, usually after a few hours of gameplay, and when in a graphically demanding area of the game. Originally i had my cpu set to 1.35v, i now bumped it up to 1.4v to try attaining stability, it usually pulls 1.36-1.38v now. any suggestions for me to gain some stability on this overlock? any help would be much appreciated, if i can provide more information let me know.

Cpu: Amd Fx6300
Motherboard: Gigabyte 970a-ud3
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 1600 16gb 4gbx4
Graphics card: Sapphire R9 290 Amd
Power supply: Corsair Hx1000i
Storage: Samsung 850 pro 256gb, Western Digital black edition 1tb

Overlock settings-
Cpu multiplier 19x
Cpu frequency 240
Cpu voltage 1.4v
ram 1599mhz, 1.5v, manual settings, stock timings
Northbridge 2400mhz, voltage set to normal
ht link frequency 2640
pcie frequency 100
bandwith 16
amd apm mastermode disabled
amd cool and quiet diabled
amd c6 support disabled
amd c1e disabled

Is it bad to have my ht link frequency above my north bridge? I read on some forums people said not to. Will it damage anything set like this, or should I leave it if it is stable? Mt ht link is at 2640. the north bridge is at 2400, I cant get that to go up any higher.
