Yeah, i got 4.3 stable a few weeks ago, it was prime blend stable for 8 hours, but after i reinstalled to windows 7 it started failing IBT, i figured it was IBT or something, so i ran prime95, with 1 notch of more voltage, 1.34> 1350

failed 8 hours of prime blend, passes IBT now.. should i return my mobo or cpu?

I'm already at 1.312v @ full load.. i think i have a bad chip lol, if i do return the CPU what should i tell the store?

so you start out at high voltage but when you put a load on it the voltage goes down? is that your issue?

Likely just needs some more tweaking and testing.

I also wouldn't call 8 hours very comprehensive.

anything beyond 12hours is overkill ^^.
Disagree.

I've had numerous OCs with readily apparent CPU/IMC/memory stability issues that were only consistently reproducible after 20-30 hours of Prime95 or LinX.

Plenty of i5 2500k's take the kind of vcore you're seeing, and more. Mine is actually a lot worse. What happens if you RMA this chip and get another one just like it? Big waste of your time. You might get lucky, but unless you're planning on buying a binned chip that is proven to hit the speed you're looking for, it's pointless to RMA.
