Default Trying to overclock my AMD FX 6100 Proc w/ an Antec Kuhler H2O 620 and becomes unstable when playing SF X Tekken

Hello everyone, I upgraded my cooling to an Antec Kuhler H2O 620 from a stock AMD heatsink on my AMD FX 6100 proc. I overclock with amdoverdrive and run a stability test. I go up to 4.0ghz and 1.375 on the 12v rail. It runs ok on my nhl 09 but my sf X Tekken it gets to the battle screen right when they are about to fight and then it blue screened. I have it back to stock and am wondering what am I doing wrong? Please HELP.

Even with after market cooling heat could still be an issue. You need to use programs like Prime95 and Coretemp to test and check for stability and make sure the heat stays down. You say 1.375v on the 12v rail, do you actually mean CPU voltage? For best OC results I recommend using the bios.
