5 hours of prime95 dont mean nothing. I've had faulty motherboards and faulty RAM pass 12 hours of p95 no sweat, I've even had some CPU IMC issues where it consistently would fail at 23-25 hours of prime95. You really need to test for ~23 hours of prime95, but I recommend at least 25. Seriously, 5 hours is such a useless figure, it gives zero insight to stability. Prime95 is a collection of about 70-80 different tests, that you fail on the 23rd and 59th minute simply means your chip couldn't handle test #80.
Temps don't mean anything, I mean it's no indication of the chip's quality at all.
email@example.com isn't too special. If you want to bin your chip, to see if it's 'golden', set it to 1.3v and see how far you can boot. If you can boot on 5.1, 5.2ghz, you have a great chip, possibly golden if you can do 5.2-5.3 (that might just be a 'awesome' chip, not golden).
Golden is a word that is thrown around way too loosely. Also, for your chip to be 'Golden', the IMC needs to be able to do 3ghz on ~8gb. Which is about as rare as a chip that'll do 5.1-5.2ghz on less than 1.5v with 24 hours prime95 stable.
Also, Ivy and Haswell don't run hot un-delidded until you push 1.25v+. H80 also is an okay mid-upper range cooler, so doing basically a stock voltage overclock is ezpz. You aren't anywhere close to pushing the limits of your chip or system. You really need to delid Ivy to really make it show it's true colors (that or spend $200+ on custom loops on what $40 cooling could do after delidding).
firstname.lastname@example.org... if that truly is 24/7 prime95 custom blend stable, that would actually be an indication of an at least above average chip (a below average chip, which is average since 50% are poor overclockers, so below average overclock is average binning, if that makes sense, ie 50% 4.5-4.6ghz on less than 1.5v, 40% 4.7-4.8, 10% 5ghz). You will need some hynix RAM to see if it's 'golden' though.
Oh, make sure you actually are prime95 stable... make sure you aren't getting any Kernel-WHEA or WHEA-Logger errors in Event Viewer (Event ID 19 and 20, you can google 'How I got out of WHEAVILLE' but he also doesnt talk about error ID 20). I can generally do about 100-200mhz higher overclock if I ignore WHEA errors, which most people do since they don't know any better, but WHEA errors are awful for system stability as they'll corrupt your OS registries pretty quickly and crash intensive programs like H264 streaming and encoding that sometimes can pass less-intense stress testing. And, make sure you are running on Above Normal priority, and that you are running a 'Custom Blend' test where you test 80%+ of your RAM (open p95, select custom, enter in ~6500 if you got 8gb of RAM or ~2400 for 4GB, you can use task manager to see how much ram you are using, although better to use HWinfo for monitoring.
I've heard of 2 ivies doing 5.2ghz ~1.4vcore though, those were golden. email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org is a slightly above average chip (or very above average, in terms of percentages) but an awesome chip really can do email@example.com with prime95 24 hours stable, as in no WHEA errors, no issues at all.
