Default Problem with prime95

HI there

I was looking for answers about why my vishera fx 8350 cannot get stable with prime95 with blend/large fft/small fft at 4.8ghz and above.

Up to 4.7 and everything is great. It doesnt matter how much vcore i put through i always get the illusive illegal sumout or a rounding error.

Ive tried manydifferent voltages and lower ram timings but alas i cannot get stable with prime at 4.8

Is there something wrong with prime and these chips at higher frequencies?

Looking for advice thankyou in advance

The answer is that your system has reached its limit in overclocking. Prime95 pushes cpus and memory harder than most programs which is why many people use it for stress testing.
