Don't remember exact time, would set it, head to work then come home type of deal.

I could care less if Prime failed and all my games ran fine. Of course I don't actually go that route, but if I did and had all my games work fine, I would be happy. My main goal with Prime is testing for temps.

Curious as to how much you had to increase volts from 'prime stable' to 'bf3 stable'?

I have been at 1.30v since building this. I think I went down to 1.25v when I was testing. With vdroop, CPUZ reports my load voltage at 1.28, from 1.30 in the bios. I have ran at 5.0 at 1.45v, just didn't feel the need to keep it there.

What was your Load Line Calibration set to? That might have had an effect on the board.

Also, I don't believe in 24 hour Prime as well. A little unnecessary for when 6-7 does the trick.

I have never found the LLC setting for this board, only issues I had were when I tried to run my same 4.8 at lower voltage.

I misunderstood-thought you ment problem was 4.8@1.3, instead of bringing it back to 1.3 to fix.
