Agreed, when initially overclocking a system I use blend. When I start maxing out my clock speed with a higher multiplier, then I'll run the smallFFt test.

I prefer SmallFFT first THEN do blend.

Better to have your cpu stable than your ram.

Monster chip you have there E86, at that voltage you should be able to get more out of the chip say 4.3 to 4.4.

Most def, but anything at 4.2Ghz+ speeds up the heatsink fan too much and I'm trying to keep this system quiet :D.
