I just use P95. It and other tests are mentioned in the guides.
Small FFT for 2 hours on the core
Small FFT for 2 hours on the cache
Once you enable XMP or start going past it you can run Blend for 2 hours
Once I'm done clocking everything I'll run Blend for around 6 hours to test the whole system.
If I set my vcore with any other stress test I'll get crashes in games.

As I consider myself an overclock beginner, I tested my setup with prime 95 (with AVX off) for 8h and it was completely stable, but running CSGO low setting (only CPU demanded) BSOD me during gameplay quite early, in first maybe 20min or even earlier. And I was not even using fps_max 0 which pushes processor to run as hard as possible, but locked myself at 320 fps. Any clue why?

Yeah, Prime95 is useless for testing stability. It's too simple. It's a heat generator nothing more.

Sorry to necro this thread. But I cannot get even 4.2Ghz stable. It'll boot but I'll get random crashes just using the computer at the desktop without even stress testing CPU. All I'm doing is upping the voltage to as high as 1.3V. Aside from increasing the voltage everything else is stock settings aside using with an 212 EVO cooler with 2 fans. Mobo is a Gigabyte GA-Z97-D3H, with the newest firmware installed.

My best stable is 4.1 GHz. Am I just a big silicon lottery loser or is there something else to try?

uneven temperatures

In cinebench benchmark, i have upgraded the paste to noctua nh-1 and now the cores are uneven, you can see core 1 is 75c and core 4 is 61c, not sure whats going on.
