I though I finally had my phenom ii x4 960t at a stable 4 ghz

but then after about 3 hours, in the middle of playing deus ex, it blue screened.What else might I have to do?

my mobo is an asus m4a87td- EVO

my cpu cooler is a corsair h60 push/pull
 
Is that ratio setting your multiplier?
can you raise that anymore and lower the clockspeed, or is 17 as high as it goes on your board?
disable that turbo core,
I'd also think your voltage is a touch high, possibly its temperatures that killed the adventure but too high a voltage is a killer

the ration can go higher, im just not sure how high i should set it to.
 
If you want 4GHz, set it to ratio20x200Cpu speed,
lower your ram timings first too,
multiplier clockings often throw ram over spec,
you can always check out the sticky for Amd chips in overclocking section for more specific tips,
I'm not a fan of the all in one coolers, but you are better off with that than stock so temps shouldn't be an issue

sry for the late response.Question, what does the multiplier do? and I tried increasing that and it still bluescreened after some time.

The CPU multiplier is how many times the FSB is multiplied to get your CPU clock. What moto is saying is to turn down your FSB and turn up your multiplier to overclock your CPU instead. This will take other components out of the picture so you can make sure its your CPU that is the culprit.
