    That is right Conners, disabling all except Bi-Directional PROCHOT and Thermal Monitor 2 is advised while trying to move clock speeds up, however I believe that zerosaku has finished overclocking, is happy with speed and just wants to have optimal power savings etc. The stress tests are to confirm stability with these features enabled.

    I would personally run a blend/balanced test for 12 hours or over night followed by 12 hours of Large FFT/Large Data Set to be sure. However if you were stable before, and pass 6 hours with EIST and all C states enabled, you should be good to go.

    Oh well, my bad... I missed the boat once again. Well I say enable them all then as long as it meets your needs. Did I already say that?

    It's always worth saying again mate, even if you have said it before. If you make sure that the PC is stable and performing well for what you use it for, then you're golden.

    Thanks for the reply guys :)

    Psyc: I actually ran my rig before with 8 hours stable on each OCCT test, Small, Medium, Large. Small Prime95, Linx 100/100 passes @ full memory.

    Bios settings was:

    Intel(R) Turbo Boost Techn. [Enabled]
    CPU Cores Enabled [All]
    CPU Multi-Threading [Enabled]
    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) [Disabled]
    C3/C6/C7 State Support [Disabled]
    CPU Thermal Monitor [Enabled]
    CPU EIST Function [Disabled]
    Virtualization Technology [Disabled]
    Bi-Directional PROCHOT [Disabled]

    I did a test last night, enabling all of bios features except PROCHOT and Virtualization technology on OCCT Medium 6 hours stable :)

    Intel(R) Turbo Boost Techn. [Enabled]
    CPU Cores Enabled [All]
    CPU Multi-Threading [Enabled]
    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) [Enabled]
    C3/C6/C7 State Support [Enabled]
    CPU Thermal Monitor [Enabled]
    CPU EIST Function [Enabled]
    Virtualization Technology [Disabled]
    Bi-Directional PROCHOT [Disabled]
    after that i enabled prochot after reading your post.

    Bi-Directional PROCHOT [Enabled]
