I went into the BIOSTAR BIOS and BIO-unlocking was already enabled. I changed OverClock Navigator from Normal to Automated. I also changed Auto OverClock System from V6 to V8-Tech Engine (had the options of V6, V8, or V12). I then booted up and went back to CPU-Z and it showed 4 cores and 4 multipliers. However, I noticed that the Core Speed would fluctuate from 917 MHz to 3909 MHz, and the Multiplier would fluctuate from x4.0 to x17.0. A few minutes later I got a blue screen.
I'm still operating with 4 cores and 4 threads, but am not OC'ing right now. The core speed and multiplier are still fluctuating though from 800 MHz to 3300 MHz.
I'm wondering if 1 core is unstable or if I'm doing something incorrectly in my BIOS?
