Just my 2 cents to input, but anyone atempting linpak with stock clocks probably atempting same with stock cooling = fail.
Myself if it successfully passes 5 times and temps are good using max memory why stress with prime for 8-10 hrs just to realize same results.

Acutally.. I bumped up the vcore by one notch and i am now officially 24 hours prime 95 stable and I am also IntelBurnTest stable. (I ran the 10 stacks or whatever you call em) So yeah, I believe I am stable "enough"
