What you need to do is read about overclocking. You're now just doing stuff. First you buy a 50 euro max cooler and then say you want to go 5ghz stable with it. And change from 1.4 right down to 1.3. You're approaching this very badly and will end up killing your system.

I meant start with something like 1.3975v. I have no idea what your motherboard's steps are, but if you are messing with the correct voltage, there should be very very small steps. You should either start from a lower clock (and much lower volts) and work up (which is probably better), or just keep the clock you want and keep knocking volts down until you crash, then go up 2 ticks or so.
