I hate to be the bringer of bad news, but 2 hours is pretty much nothing.  The minimum is about 12 hours, but even then it's not about the length of time; it's about the FFTs.  Prime95 v27.7 build 2 has 82 FFT sizes in the Blend test.  I discovered from my own testing that at 15 minutes per FFT size, it can take Prime95 just over 24 hours to go through all 82 of them.  Although, that's as far as I went with the testing.  I mean, I probably could have  figured  out which FFT it was usually running at each step of the way to figure out how long it takes to get to each size and then chart it out, but just the thought of doing that overwhelms me.

 

So anyway, 2 hours is not enough to determine stability.

I think my Vcore is set to around 1.31v, which means multi step load line also boosts the overall voltage, then depending on how much it might give you higher or lower idle voltage.

 

Load-Line Calibration is a vDroop control - it controls how much vDroop there is.  Without Load-Line Calibration, the CPU's vDroop is not restricted at all.  As you increase the Load-Line Calibration setting, vDroop gets restricted more and more until finally, you start getting vRise due to reversing vDroop.  You see, Intel designed their CPUs to have vDroop, so Load-Line Calibration is essentially a way to control how much vDroop there is.
