Thanks in advance!
Folding creates stresses that other softwares don't reproduce. It's simply a program amongst others that I use for stability.

Here's something weird. My system was over 2 hours OCCT stable last night, turned it off, forgot if I saved the BIOS settings or not so I lowered the vcore by one notch, 1 hour stable, so it's not enough. Go into BIOS, raise the vcore a notch. Still not stable. Raise the vcore again, OCCT failed within 10 minutes. How the hell did that happen?

Is OCCT that reliable....? >.<

That's good to know. I ran OCCT for 2 hours while I browsed and it ran clean. That was after I ran an hour of Prime95. I ran an hour or so of WoW and it was stable too. It is not a real aggressive OC from what I have seen from others, but it is good enough for me for now.
