Did my chip degrade or was it not stable from the beginning?

Asus Gene V

3570k 4.5ghz

Okay guys so here is whats going on, originally needed 1.280v to keep stable, then I did a bios update because I had thought my GPU was running 8x ( Was in 8x slot ) and after the bios update I could run stable prime95 runs at 1.248v with a -0.005 however I had Vdroop which I never had with my other OC at 75% LLC. It would hit 1.256v when playing games but max at 1.248v in prime. Didn't care much, so last night running my weekly prime I had TONS of errors, Whats going on here, I had it stable now its not. I had ran 36 hours of prime and no whea errors now I have alot. Only difference is normally I run prime with 4800mb blend this time I did 5200 however I have 8gbs and max usage was 86% I just did a new flash, 8 hour test, no issues, going to do another 7 hour test and see how it goes, its so weird to do and 8 hour test, 0 wheas, then another and get like 7 all over the place. It almost seems like if I go into the bios and save the profile or if I go into the bios at all after making changes I get whea errors? Is this possible or am I just thinking to much

Update* So after my last reflash I've past 3x 8 hour tests now, will try again tonight

basically I did 4x seperate 8 hour tests, I got whea errors on the 4th test in the span of 4 minutes 40 minutes before I ended the test ( I woke up) Now the only thing that changed between the 3rd and 4th test is I saved the OC in the bios, this most likely has nothing to do with it right? Itsl ike doing a 24 hour test and getting errors in the last hour, fact is it was unstable right> I shouldn't waste my time doing more Prime95 runs? How much have I degraded my CPU? I shouldn't see a drastic reduction of lifespan considering temps were never over 71c and the voltage is safe?

I've had the CPu for about 2 months and have probrably ran prime over night 40 times maybe more maybe less, picked a higher number incase it was that high. temps have always been under 75c normaly peaking 67-71c. In game temps are always under 62c

I doubt you degraded the CPU at all given the temps and volts you have outlined. I personally run Prime blend for 24 hours. I have found that at around ten hours is one of the spots that BSODs occur if not completely stable.

My old OC became unstable after my last bios update as well. You could try flashing back to the older bios and see if its stable again at the same settings.

Bios update allowed me to get a lower vcore actually, you think it just wasn't 100% stable to begin with? I am doing one last reflash, this time not saving the OC in the bios no matter what, seems like every time I save it I get whea errors. is that possible a thing or just paranoia? Also is it common to get vdroop at 75% LLC? I don't remember my old GB UD3H build or the older bios doing that.

wasn"t stable to begin with. i don"t see how something like 24h stress test can grant you something else then damaging the hardware tho. if you want to see if your cpu is stable just run a few cinebench runs (they are average load on cpu) and play some games.

just because you pass some benchmarks or stresstests dosen"t mean you are stable at everything.

Okay well I got 1 whea error last night, since my OC was -0.005 I had to bump it to +0.005 which sucks because I probrably could have it stable without adding an entire 0.01v

If that was the case I'd never know if I was truly stable though, I have never gotton whea errors while palying games or benchmarks, last night I'd never find out I was unstable

So I got a single Whea error at 1.256v on the first night rather then it taking a few tests, does this mean I did something wrong in the settings or did a bad flash?
