Thanks Forceman and Totally Dubbed for the responses.
I entered 1.290 in the BIOS vcore (I think I have one of the worst 3570K out there in terms of high OCing capabilities). Should I use the BIOS vocre instead of CPU-Z's to calculate the offset? Also, the VID mostly sticks around 1.296.
More bad news...I've just found out there's a single WHEA-Logger Event 19 error reported in Event Viewer approx. 6 hours after I started Prime95 no errors from Prime95 though. Did I do something wrong? I have pretty much followed everything described in the guide on the first page.
