  1. You overclocked higher than your CPU can go. If it crash prime95 it is not stable.

  2. Your going to kill the VRM on that motherboard at 1.4v sooner or later. I wouldn't recommend you overclock on that board at all, very poor not heatsinked 3 phase VRM.

    CPU temps? The CPU and/or VRM is likely overheating causing a shutdown. You will damage something eventually if you keep using the PC with the CPU at 1.4v.

    ty for answer my cpu temp is fine about 40c in 10 min test..but could i do atleast 4.ghz on all 6 cores cause amd has turbo to 4.1 or so but only on 2 cores and its sucks

  4. A 10 minute test of what? No way you are getting 40c temps in a stress test like prime95 at 1.4v with a hyper 212 cooler. I don't mean to sound rude but that really is one of the worst AMD AM3+ motherboards money can buy, I would not trust that board at any voltage over stock. A ny overclock you can get at stock voltage should be fine.
