You want to get those sticks hot..
not what I asked. I need to know if I move in the right direction, so is 500% better than 7% in terms of stability or is both equally unstable?
As I have said many times: RAM stability is not about duration or percentage, but temperature!
You can pass days of stress test and crash in few minutes in gaming if your sticks get hotter because of the GPU.
My advice to test stability:
1) first check your settings by doing a rapid testing of timings/frequency by booting to Linux USB (search GAST) about 5 minutes should be enough, just to avoid to kill your Windows by mistake
2) slow your case fans, boot to Windows, use your GPU to heat up your RAM sticks in background and do your stress test while monitoring your RAM temp, the first errors will appear when memory cells loose their electric signal quality because of the heat.
That will be your maximum safe temp before risking memory corruption.
3) adjust your settings if you're not happy with the result and try again
Keep some safety room max stable temperature for daily usage
Default XMP should be stable until about 60°c on PCB (85°c in ICs from JEDEC standard)
