P95 is good but most people don't know how to use it.
Use 26.6 if you don't want AVX, I know it can be disabled in later versions but I've had the .txt file revert back to using AVX after crashes before so it's easier if I just use 26.6.
For testing the core use a custom size of 1344k to 1344k with FFTs in place, that's for quick stressing to get in the ballpark. Once you've settled on something use Small FFT for a couple hours.
For cache I use Small FFT again, for ram and the entire system I use Blend.
TimeSpy and Firestrike aren't great for stressing GPUs let alone CPUs lol They'll usually run on some pretty unstable clocks.
