I had your exact same cpu,mobo combo. With my experience, Real Bench is the winner. I've never touched prime with Haswell. If you're stable for an hr with Real Bench, you're golden on your clocks.

@orndorf77 Have you had a chance to sit down and read http://www.overclock.net/t/1411077/haswell-overclocking-guide-with-statistics ?

1.32, most likely.

No cpu VID is a set amount, it doesnt change. So my cpu VID is like 1.35v, but if I set 1.20v in bios my cpu will run at 1.20v.

"VID" on most Haswell boards will report the value that you set in bios. Load vcore is usually ~0.02 above it - but for some boards, cpu-z reports VID instead of the Vcore sensor so it reinforced the bad number instead of the correct one

dose real bench push your cpu harder then prime95 ? the only other stress test I used was the evga oc scanner 100% load cpu burn in I ran it for 10 minutes and my temperatures were 6c cooler then when I was running prime95. so I figured to use prime95 because it pushed my cpu harder . but I don't think I would want to push my cpu harder then prime95 does. besides I all ready stress tested my cpu for 4 hours

you can run Realbench benchmark 10+ times (less than an hour) and if it crashes around the 4th/5th run you know you're not stable.

ive also used Realbench instead of other synthetic stress tests and my cpu seems to be holding up (4+ hours of BF4 with no crashes, OCd CPU/GPU/Ram)

is my cpu safe at the voltage and temperatures I am getting now ?

1.25vcore safer for lower temps with i7. It must be really hot running hotter tests w/ 1.3. Check the x264 test in that thread etc, read the guide in general start to finish

if I lower my voltage to 1.25v I will be lucky if I can get my cpu stable at 4.2 ghz . I really had my mind set on 4.3 ghz before I even bought my cpu . how about if i change my thermal paste to coollaboratory liquid pro ? i am now using tuniq tx-4

Wouldn't help unless you delidded

When i ran Realbench, x264 seemed to be the most stressful part of it - but they're using a very outdated encoder, or at least was, so the other x264 i linked was significantly harder on the system.
