Big reason I think IBT is a perfect tool for a fast/general idea if a OC is stable. especially if looking for a max clock.
But when it comes down to the final stability test .. Prime all the way.
IBT is like 'full throttle' whereas Prime lifts up on the gas every now and then.

It's those transitional power states, vdrops, vdroops etc that are added to Primes mix which do make it the better tool for longevity testing.

I can't get the VRM Frequency to show me any love, which means more reading needs to be done. As far as PLL goes, I'm not budging from where it's set to in the saved profile that I'll get back to stabilizing in the wee hours of the morning.
What level of LLC do you have it on? And what size of FFT is it hanging on do you know? large or small? - If small, it's not enough vcore.

And see what options your VRM Spread spectrum gives you - I "think" it's the same as my VRM frequency option which should be set to 350.

(And I know your frustration mate.)

Not enough vcore. Sudden quits, appcrash means it's 'in the ballpark', but not quite there.

I just turned it up to Extreme for the run I'm doing now (3, going on 4 hours strong). I'm not sure of the size as when I woke up and saw it had stopped responding, I just restarted.

Also waving your hands over it and chanting "hahvi-gahbi" may help too.

Stopped it at 12 hours, 7 minutes. Think it's safe to slap a "Stable!" sticker on this overclock with a lower PLL.

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.

Well, I'm not as hardcore and patient as some of you guys. 8 hours is enough for me. Prime has to be the most boring test there is, with the possible exception of memtest86. I have to work on temps before I go much higher.
