Next up, 4.7 and trying to stabilize LLC to be lower; it's already being monitored at 1.368 with LLC set to Extreme with an actual voltage of 1.325.
Different board, different bios, different results - but I'm using 50% LLC and it's all good.

Memtest is the clear boredom winner, but prime is a close second.
As for hardcore, I used to do 20-50 IBT passes and 24hr Prime runs, but my patience is decreasing too. 5-10 For IBT, 12hr for Prime.
Lately I'll prime at a given offset - call it stable - then lower it a bit and just 'real world test it'. Any freezes/BSODs, I bump the setting up.
Ie I primed at +.105, but I lowered it to +.070, had one freeze in Arma 2 - bumped it up to +.085 and so far so good. After the initial Prime test, I simply could not be arsed re-running it.
If I keep encountering freezes - back to the Prime passing Offset. Eventually I do the same to RAM. Lower DRAM volts and vccio, and see how it 'real worlds'.
At least if it plays silly buggers, I have a good idea why.
