I just wanted to know if there was a valid point on increasing the voltage just for P95, because every single other software (including Intel Burn Test and several games) runs completely fine at 1.310v, no BSODs at all. I guess there isn't any then, thank you anyway

Perhaps only P95 is able to yeld a full load on the CPU and therefore pushes all the voltages related to the CPU/Mobo/RAM to the max. That's a pretty unrealistic situation for regular/every day use, for instance when you game or simply engage in entertainment activities with your computer, UNLESS you do folding (e.g. folding@home, BOINC).
