    This might sound obvious but make sure you have a good cooler on your CPU first!

    I have that exact setup.

    Go into the BIOS and set the CPU multiplier to 44

    Save and exit
    Do you have high speed memory?

    There's no such thing as a guaranteed overclock, every individual CPU is different - you must always test for stability after changing any clocks or voltages from default.
