So basically im new to overclocking and i have been trying to overclock my processor to 4.4ghz but im having a lot of issues doing so i saw most people can get 4.4 at around 1.3 voltage from what i researched to which i tried and it failed the stability test on aida 64. to which i think increased slowly and eventually reached 4.4ghz at 1.325 voltage which i thought was stable but the game i was playing proceeded to crash after about 2 hours. Also it failed the stability test i later tried after about an hour. The issue im having is i tried to leave voltage on auto and my PC literally wont boot at 4.4ghz on auto and im not sure why as i see a lot of people leave it on auto im wondering if my motherboard is the issue or the bios update i have as it seems like i need a huge amount of voltage to even run a 4.4ghz overclock im guessing i would need around 1.35v to get it to be stable. The auto feature just doesnt work and also my bios seems to have preset options to overclock called "CPU upgrade" which i tried also and my pc just wouldnt boot at 4.4 im really not sure what to do anymore as i want to overclock but it does not look like its going to happen my PC seems stable at 4.2ghz at 1.25v. Im on the latest bios update for the Z170x gaming 3 MB also f22j. im using 16gb DDR4 Ram and im using xmp profile 1. i have a hyper x 212 evo cooler on my cpu also. I also tried using the gigabyte software to overclock called easy tune and at 4.4ghz on the stability test my pc blue screened. im really unsure of what to do i guess maybe my processor is just a bad chip that cant go over 4.2ghz.
