Overclocking i5 4670k lost the silicon lottery?

At the moment I'm testing 1.32V with 4ghz.
Everything has failed from 1.27V running x264 stability stress test while doing around 20 loops.

I'm wondering if 1.32V fail if I should just stop now, and go back to 3.8ghz with 1.27V, which was the the stable overclock I had before I tried 4ghz.

  1. Update the BIOS and disable Turbo Boost. If you have not done so.
  2. let's get some info from your first:
    Motherboard
    Power Supply
    RAM Model
    and most importantly, what cooler do you have for your CPU?

    You shouldn't even be able to OC with that mobo (would need Z87/Z97 to overclock the mulitplier). Are you trying to overclock by changing BCLCK? If so, you won't be able to overclock more than a couple percent regardless of what voltage you use, and in general BCLCK OCing is not recommended except on newer platforms (Skylake an onward I believe).
