Stop using windows when you are testing. This is exactly what happens. You may have some background program that likes to use one or two of the cores, even if P95 is set higher in the task manager.
If you aren't using windows then run SuperPI, PCMark, etc and make sure the processor is performing up to par. Make sure processor usage is 0-1% when nothing is running.
EDIT: Make sure 13000MB of RAM is not too much. You do not want P95 using the page file, or this can happen. When P95 is running make sure your memory is at about 90%.

It's nothing against you, but who started all this? They need to be silenced because whether or not there are WHEA errors means nothing. I have no errors but according to the theory behind this WHEA stuff, I should have some errors because of the instability my system went through when I overclocked it
Anyway, I assume that having works fall behind by that much must mean that it's not quite stable yet. BSODs, lock-ups, or crashes don't always occur when the system is unstable.
So I agree: increase the core voltage at first a little at a time to see if this results in workers not falling behind as much.
It's some new crave.. I saw the thread awhile back some guy was really trying hard to say they matter.
I don't even check them, I still believe it's a load of crap.Edited by Murlocke - 8/16/12 at 8:54am
