My idea is that .016v isn't going to hurt your cpu.

But - is AID64 a multi threaded app? Because, even with P95, if you load it up with ONE THREAD ONLY, you will see higher vcore than if you load up all the cores - try it and see.

P95, 12 to 24 hours, is generally accepted as the defacto standard for stability with SandyBridge. No test is perfect, however, so it is good that you are using other tools to test.

EDITED TO ADD I don't currently F@H, but have read that F@H puts as much heat stress load on cpu as P95 does, in some cases guys are stable P95 and still crashing F@H and having to add vcore - usually just a very small increment.
