Test stability before benchmarking performance.

You wont get any worthwhile data out of a benchmark if you're unstable.


Also, I think you're changing too much in single steps, lot of people suggesting a lot of changes. Most voltages should just be set to stock for example, you only really need to change VTT and Vcore for low clocks like this.

Then drop the RAM multiplier and timing to take them out of the equation for stability testing, OC the CPU get that stable, bring the RAM back up close to stock and see how tight you can get the timings.

Then, benchmark the performance gains
