Question 1:
OCCT vs Prime95, which is better for error detection? I have been using both, but is one better and more accurate than the other?
While trying to undervolt my 9590 currently, OCCT has successfully stopped the CPU:OCCT test because of error, allowing me to reboot before a crash to retest again. Prime95 doesn't seem to catch the errors though.
So what say you?

Question 2:
They say Large Data Set test is best/fastest for finding errors, however, If I know my memory is rock stable, does it make more sense for me to use Small Data Set to specifically find errors on undervolting the CPU, or should I still stick with LDS?

Prime95 isn't programmed to stop when an error occurs, but the same errors will occur.

Small Data Set is the same as Small FFTs: it doesn't stress the IMC.

Medium is the same as Blend.

Large is the same as Large FFTs.

For CPUs with an IMC like yours, I think Blend is best.

Thanks for the input! I'm using blend now as we speak actually but good to know it's what I should be using.
