I'd just run it at this speed and volts for a week or so. I'm not a fan of hrs upon hrs of stress testing just to get it perfectly stable. You just need it stable enough to do everything you want it to do.

cool ill do that thanks for the replies, imma change bios to 1.26 anyway, since that wont effect the volts, since i think any value between 1.255 and 1.265 will end up as 1.28 in cpu-z anyway on load.

Prime is stupid run IBT at maximum stress level for 10 runs....if you pass that without any crashing or BSOD's you are stable.

It really depends. Best bet is to use both to stress test. Prime95 will catch things IBT won't, and vice-versa. Neither is better than the other in terms of sheer stress testing.

@OP: I say go with the 4.7GHz OC. 83*C is fine. Could be better, but I could also be wealthier.

Wrong! Prime95 is the stability test, IBT tests heat and gives a feel for initial voltage but that's about it.

I've passed 50 runs of IBT Maximum only to fail Prime95 in the first hour. Stable is a term used too loosely around here. Run 24 hours of Prime95 unless you never do anything important on your PC.

It is, a lot of SB-E users overlcock with an offset. I do, and don't have a problem.
