The CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 RAM is approved for Intel i5/i7 PCs so it may not work properly on an AMD system? You should see about replacing it with RAM approved for the Phenom II AMD CPUs. Any of the AMD approved Phenom II RAM from the link below should work fine.

PLEASE READ THE MEMORY UPGRADE GUIDE at the link below. It WILL answer many questions.

PC Overclocking is like the lottery:

There are many possible combinations but only a few that produce winning results. Nothing is guaranteed when it comes to overclocking. If you are able to tune your hardware to run beyond it's specified performance, then you got something for free.

Don't expect this to always happen.
