You might still get unstable under Prime95 long run.
There is quick way to test SB with using Prime95.
Although, combination of stress testings are recommended for stability.
But for SB, Prime95 is still the best one to run.
Go to torture test, select custom.
Make min and max ffts size to 1344. and do the same for 1792.
These 2 particular ffts are hard on SB.
Also make the memory to use to 90% of your free RAM. (if you have 8GB set, you can put 6500mb ram)
Then run it 2x15 min sets on each ffts.
If you can pass that, you'll most likely pass the blend for 12hours+.
Also good way to use IBT/LinX with AVX is to run it maximum ram so you'll know your new setting will BSOD or not.
Also you should note what GFlops score you get on each OC.
You must score higher than what you get before. always.
Especially at higher RAM used, even it passes the test, you might score low GFlops.
Then there is something wrong with your OC.
Also the GFlops score shouldn't fluctuate too much between each runs. (should be within 2GFlops max difference on all the runs)
