But for me there isn't an acceptable amount of instability. If my computer crashes mid match in a game, it's trash.
Any special custom run, or just any of the presets? SmallFFT or LargeFFT should be good for testing CPU OC, and Blend when OCing the RAM after you got a stable CPU OC right?

True, I had the same situation as well, I thought it's really stable and then crashes in a game.
Real world scenarios are the best way to test for normal stability after all stress tests. I had to push my voltage a little bit higher on my 4670k once because it crashed in a game.
Would be still good to get a quick and decent idea if the system is stable.
