Thanks Sandman for the info, I am working at getting a 4.7 stable and about to change out my rad fans/ thermal paste on the northbridge. When I do so I will post some screen shots of my bios settings to begin work at 4.8+. I thought I had 4.7 stable after passing x2 maximum IBT AVX passes and 10+ hours of Prime but I left for an overnight excursion to Grand Rapids (shout out Sandman) and when I got back the system had rebooted for some reason. Always frustrating. At any rate have a great holiday!!!

So it sounds like you have a really great CPU there. Maybe it was a 9590 that snuck in as an 8350 thumb.gif
Thanks for checking for me. I suspect that XTU is a modified version of Prime95 as it seems to be able to test the instructions/cpu without stressing the power delivery as hard. Maybe modified due to Haswell-E boards burning up (8 Cores 16 threads)

Since VRM stress causes the socket, and thus CPU to heat up and in some cases causing false negatives (throttling etc), I thought it might be a useful tool for those to check stability, if they aren't planning on say, running F@H. Too bad Intel doesn't play nice like that.

I'm glad you gents posted these comments here: I recently built a 5960X for work, but have yet to play with BIOS settings on the Asus X99. As such, I didn't bother running any stability testing. I'll definitely research this topic thoroughly before touching the BIOS: never would have considered that P95 would kill an i7 doh.gif

If you notice in this pic that the package and cpu temps are ~ 10c apart which is where they should be. I'm not using any fans I just have an exceptional water loop. My point is that the CPU cooler IS the most important part of the cooling as well as the motherboard. Better boards dissipate heat more effectively and transfer power with less heat produced. Your board Is OK for a mild OC but if you want to go higher I would suggest a better cooler or strap a fan on the back of the board and leave it where it is.

Old post, but I 100% agree - if the two temps are more than 10C apart during stress testing, something is wrong with your cooling. My set-ups fluctuate between a 6C and 10C gap depending on which stage of the stability testing I'm on.
