Not any worse than any others, its a bit tall and cumbersome, but should be quite easy if you have the mobo out, and doable with it in.

What BIOS settings can be adjusted to improve whatever it is that AIDA64's cache stress test is measuring?

Thanks for asking. I haven't had a chance to go back through my notes yet for all the various vcores and settings changes I've tried.

However, I have made a couple of observations since my previous post that might help others working with AIDA64.
First, turning hyperthreading off makes a difference. (Maybe this was an obvious point for many readers, but I didn't know it would specifically affect the AIDA64 cache stress test.) I was BSOD'ing at less than 60 seconds in AIDA64 cache stress test with hyperthreading on. Turning it off, same settings, and I could run 10+ minutes.

Second, after taking out a sound card I had installed in one of the PCIe slots (PCIE3, which is a slow PCIe lane on the ASRock Z77 OC Formula; I left the gpu intact in PCIE2, which is a fast PCIe lane), the computer became more stable in the AIDA64 cache stress test. Instead of crashing in less than 60 seconds, again could run 5 or 10 minutes. (I haven't put the card back in to confirm this observation though. The way the watercooling fittings and tubing are positioned makes doing that a huge pain in the butt.)
