If your going to overclock I think you have to plan on some instability.
You aren't done overclocking until your system is completely 100 percent stable.

If you are getting crashes there IS a reason for it.

I have zero stablity problems even up to 4275MHz it will not crash even when running Vantage all day long. My E8600 could run at 4.5GHz on air with zero crashes ever.

I've seen guys spend weeks with burn test only to realize they were wasting their time. Two days with Prime Blend and it's done, so which one seems faster now? I know what I know ain't nobody telling me different.
