have you tried the cinebench R15 open gl test yet?, It will prove if your stable or not, found its more heavy than occt, it will just crash in 3 sec's and demands a reboot, but if it passes, it very likely on to be stable.
Cinebench can only give you hints on how your system works. Heat, performance. NOT again, NOT stability.
It'll take a lot more Core Voltage bumps to pass AIDA 64 let alone IBT AVX or PRIME Blend. I'll throw mine for example, 5.1 GHz at 1.575 Vcore can pass Cinebench. But takes 1.6 Vcore to pass 4.8 GHz with IBT! 1.625 for Prime Blend and a whole lot of of loosening / downclocking RAM and CPU-NB.
AIDA 64 can give enough stability with games. But once you do a lot more stuff, it'll prove you it takes more than that to remain stable. And it doesn't give you an idea how much heat can be produced by your OC. ~10C less than IBT AVX.Edited by mus1mus - 2/17/15 at 7:39am
