Either I got extremely low-binned one or I'm doing something wrong.

First of all, most reviewers were getting 4.2ghz on a stock voltage.
I was only able to get it to 3.6ghz before it crashes.

Most reviewers were getting oc just by changing multiplier.
after 3.6ghz, any multiplier wouldn't be stable and I used vcore range from 1.1 to 1.35 with increments of 0.025.

Highest stable overclock I got was 4ghz, and that was by changing base multiplier factor to 1.25.
and that was at freaking 1.3v. (any low or higher would bsod or wouldn't boot)

My prime95 test made my temp go to 77'c at 4ghz. idle at 35'c.

I'm using hyper 212 evo with two fans.

I'm iffy about this. Am I just really unlucky or please tell me what I'm doing wrong.
Motherboard is Gigabyte Z97MX gaming 5.
Just because you think it is right, it doesn't make it right for everyone. Even you.
You're being trolled only if you let them.

everything else is set to auto. Memory was oc'ed a bit from stock 1600mhz to 1733mhz.

This. You only want to overclock one thing at a time until you're sure everything is stable. You also shouldn't do anything with the pc while you're running stress/stability tests.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

Welcome to Intel paying reviewers to exaggerate a chip you know is an extreme budget cpu.

"oh what yours didn't get that high? Not a science, not a guarantee, please understand".

Definitely start here. Put your memory at 1333. Only OC or even go to the rated speed until after you have the CPU stable.

I have mine at 4.1ghz at 1.16V on stock cooler. 75 degrees in OCCT stress. Waiting on my 212 Evo.

lowering memory to stock and still no change with OC.
