You see why it's always important to stress it to the max ;) bump your CPU voltage and maybe the ram voltage ( but ask for this before I am not 100% sure ) and do the test again. What is fun with linx is that it's the test used by intel to test CPU. Nothing will stress your CPU liek that. so you know that it's 100% stable if you can pass it. Like my system was passing prime for day but failing at folding. Carry on and you will find the right setting I am sure!

just can't seem to get it stable, I increased the vcore to 1.3125, and the Dimm to 1.55, still fails at 5 and the cpu core reached 81 c
that seems a little high right?

Temp always depend on you. To me a CPU can gp up to 90 without a issue because you will NEVER stress the CPU like that in normal use. So around 80 in Linx will get you at like 70 in normal use so no issue here.

yeah, i didn't think of it that way, I'll try and get it stable some other day, I can still play games for hours without any stability issues, also can fold for pretty long time too.

It's cool ;) just make sure to make it stable some day and always remember that if you run into stability issue the problem can be there. If you can play and do what you want then, you can take it easy and do it when time will be good.

If you ever want us to assist in the quest for stability don't be shy and post in the overclocking and tweaking section;) some folk that know a lot on OC spend time there they will help you the best they can.
