agreed.
if you run IBT with custom ram, then it will test the cpu and ram.
just selecting the test as high or very high is the wrong way to go,
as this will also use cached ram.
just go to task manager then performance and see how much FREE ram you have.
then click on custom in IBT and enter just below your free amount,
eg. if i have 2550mb free, i will enter 2400mb.
then select the amount of cores you have,
then run it

Maybe someone else can help with that. But you should be ok w/vcore...of course I could be wrong.
this^^^
i always use IBT first, as it can often find an unstable overclock alot faster than prime95.
usually i run 20 passes of IBT and then an overnight run of blend

edit. if you pass IBT and fail prime, then either add some voltage to northbridge or your ram
