Do you guys have a separate Windows installation for overclocking + stress testing? I think I should create one.

No real need, corrupting your existing partition is extremely rare unless you have important tasks running on start up for whatever reason.
Earlier days when overclocking wasn't as "safe" compared to now it could easily power off to early leaving your hardrive unable to flush it's cache or stop in an important transfer, but now there's not much going on that can corrupt your OS, and if you would be to unlucky the repair usually solves everything.
However if you want to take your time, by all means there's nothing bad about using one.

lol ***, I've corrupted my OS countless times now with this POS chip BSOD basically under anything. Right now it's in a state that I'll have to do Win8 refresh to clean it up properly again. I hate my chip, one day it's sweet (let's ignore temps and it's a poor clocked) but then what appears stable, it BSOD the next day.

Well by using that abomination of desktop/phone cross-mix of an OS you shot yourself in the foot in the first-place, windows 8 is terrible.
Sorry but that's what i think - i had it once, i'm back on Windows 7.

I like to have full control of my os, including running services and disabling unnecessary things.

Quck update now have my os up to date and drivers installed. 46 multi with 1.2= no post, 46 multi with 1.25 post but failed occt in 5 minutes. 44 multi with 1.25 and xmp 2133 ram passed occt for 30 minutes with a max 73c temp. No idea if this is good, bad or middling. Not studied enough yet and first Intel oc ever. When say occt using linpack and 90%ram.

heh. my Win7 OS survived overclocking 2500K, 3570K and 4670K with dozens times bsod, change from HDD to SDD and still feels and works like a new smile.gif

I understand many of the earliest guide went with the "find out what voltage required to post at 4.6" kind of mindset but I don't feel that's a good benchmark for figuring out how good your CPU is. The best way is to overclock the CPU yourself. Not posting at x46 at 1.2v doesn't mean much.

 

I needed a whopping 1.425v for 4.6ghz and I'm only a bit under average, kindda average. In my case majority of people would stop at 4.5 and report 1.28v, they wouldn't go on to 4.6.

Man I should have kept my SandyBridge!

Last night I try OCCT at 43x core, 39x uncore (1.08V), 1.8V VCCIN

Vcore = 1.27V: stable for 1.5hrs (I stopped there)
Vcore = 1.25V: stable for 1.5hrs (I stopped there)
Vcore = 1.230V: crashed after 45min (no BSOD, just OCCT gave an error)
Vcore = 1.235V: had crashed (BSOD) after 1hr while I was sleeping

Vcore = 1.24V: instant BSOD (ok, within 10min)

ENOUGH! I reinstall Windows, install just OCCT and TeamViewer and AISUITE so that I can stress test from work and adjust different settings.

Vcore = 1.24V: crashes within minutes
Vcore = 1.25V: crashes within minutes. Last night it went on for 1.5hrs without a crash.

I cannot take this anymore!!!
