    Overclocking a 5960x on RVE

    I wanted to see if someone had any ideas on how I could possibly push my overclocks further. I've read all the posted guides, and frankly, I'm at a loss as to why I can't get any more performance. It may come down to silicon lottery, but I figured I needed to ask for advice before I go buy another processor. No matter what changes I make, I cannot get 4.6Ghz to run stable. I can run a 35 multiplier at 125 BCLK and everything is amazing at 1.35 volts, but even overvolting the CPU to 1.55-1.65 results in a crash. I am not even close to the thermal envelope on the processor, so I hoped someone with a little more experience may be able to give me a little guidance. Thanks!

    Edit - to clarify, the crash I am getting is the clock watchdog timeout - stop 0x00000101, and I've tested to make sure it's not cache related, or memory related.
