That's an incomplete picture. He was talking about how x264 test was already too hard to pass. Prime95 would be way worse than x264 for that problem.

We have different incentives. I'm running a guide and a chart. With how finnicky stability can be, and this disconnect between being crashy and not ackowledging it (human psychology), I have to set up a standard so overclocks are somewhat comparable. Plus, a chart with people that crash and the settings not updated since makes my chart close to useless. If I get people coming back (even if it's like 30% of the people that took the test) and crash despite passing whatever I recommend, then that looks -very- bad on my part.
If you can confirm with good certainty that you are OK with XTU, then so be it. I still can't chart you in the main chart, I'd have to chart you in the secondary chart because rules are rules. I think you tested and passed Realbench for 8 hours, right? That is already enough to get into the main chart.
I still don't understand how ram can be a problem if it's set to 2133 while overclocking the CPU.
And dang, you responded quickly. I was still typing.
