You have to run Prime95 for at least 17.5 hours to see if it's stable. That way it will run through all the tests...

This has been a frustration of mine as well. I had a similar issue with my CPU being stable for hours in OCCT but crashing quickly when playing GTA4. Are you using fixed or offset mode to change the CPU voltage? The thing with using offset mode is that the vcore is lower in single-thread load than it is in multi-thread load. Iketh pointed this out to me and it makes a lot of sense. If a game crashes, even if you've stability tested for hours, it could just be the game was only loading a single-thread at that moment and the single-core voltage was too low and caused instability. Unfortunately there isn't a way to increase only the single-core voltage manually, that I know of, and the only way to increase it is to also increase the multi-core voltage when using offset mode. I'm not sure if this is your issue but it made a lot of sense to me. You can test this out by loading the CPU with a single-thread of Prime95 and then loading all threads, and see what the voltage difference is via CPU-Z or some other program that can monitor CPU voltage. Here is the post from Iketh I'm referring to:

I upped volts to 1.17 which also crashed, so I raised volts again to 1.18 which is now stable in GTA4 (Offset +0.020v and LLC Level 4). I'm not saying use GTA4 instead of OCCT or Prime, but this real world test seems to stress the CPU in a way that finds instability very quickly. Just thought it was worth mentioning and kind of interesting.
You're just unstable during light loads. This is common for offset overclocks. To test for yourself, set prime to use 1 thread only and watch your overclock drop to its knees.
To fix, either adjust LLC and offset accordingly to raise 1-thread load volts but still retain the same load volts, or simply turn off C3 and C6 states (but you'll consume ~10 more watts while gaming/general computer use).

In 27.7 it's probably even longer than that.

You're right! I stopped mine right after it finished 3584K.

So what should I put as the starting point to finish the rest til 4096K. I was at around 20hrs when i stopped, with 4 FFTs to go.

Edit: figured it out, just put the length as min and max value to run that value.

I don't know how you can run specific tests sequentially, however they come in the Blend test.

If you specify the min/max FFT range it will run all of the tests between those numbers but if the FFT's don't come in the same particular order to begin with, it may not help by eliminating the beginning/ending ranges of them if what you want to do is pick up where you left off. Try whatever you want, and use 1 minute tests when setting the FFT lengths so that they cycle more quickly.

I just looked at my results log and I'm just missing the last 4 lengths, so i'm running the 4 of them with the custom setting.

Just enter the min/max with the same value as the length to test that specific length. Just for my peace of mind lol

Was missing 320K, 4000K, 384K, 4096K.

I had to bump up my vcore from 1.15 to 1.16

FSX kept crashing after a little while. thumb.gif (which is still terrible to an extent, 20fps at max graphics w/ a gtx 680 )

So I checked my event log, and I've got some of those whea parity errors too. Not many, only a few in the last 24 hours (occurred during a video encode). Ran the Intel diagnostic test, FAILED the bclk test, says my base clock is 99??!! Anyway, I disabled the base clock test and ran it again and it passed at my OC settings.

Dunno what this means - am I stable or not? I guess not completely if I still get those whea errors. Maybe there's more to it, maybe mobo related that needs a BIOS update?

PS Prime passed a 22 hour test.
