so far i have my 8350 @ 4.7 with 1.440v as reported by hwinfo64
Exactly, IMO people that run those programs for hours and hours on end and claiming that its needed in order to be "stable" have no clue on what stability really means...
They also get an false idea on what their chip actually can do for example, they need a lot more vcore in order to be stable in those programs than they ever need in every day usage.
I test this over and over again and i simply don't see a point in stressing the CPU with those programs.
