sadly not one of my cores always fails at a rounding error. i believe its my ram thats giving me the problems. but all the other cores went on to 8hours without a problem. i heard rounding problems are usually related to the cpu but im new to intel overclocking i might try and loosing the timings or something.

One of the BSOD codes i received was "FC" and i think "d1" I wanna try it again once i get my SSD in so it doesn't take forever to restart and load lol.
what voltage were u trying 4.8 at?. i needed roughly 1.335 volts to actually run prime 95 for an hour (Hell i was able to boot into windows @5ghz with the same voltage and get a cpu validation and run the internet for about 30mins), but the heat was killing my ivy bridge. (was peaking 92*C even with my hyper212+ with an ultra kaze on it going directly into my exhaust fan). and it was downclocking to stock speeds 3400. every now and then during the test so im assumeing it wasnt stable.
guess my chip needs a water cooler if i want to run it 24/7. im assuming 5ghz stable for me will be in the 1.4 to 1.45 range. in terms of voltages from what ive seen of my chips potentical atm.Edited by Teufel9000 - 12/12/12 at 10:40am
