I have just noticed my AS5 has completed the burn-in time required for crystallization. It took about a month to cure. My AS5 is optimize for heat transfer from core to heatsink. Now I can lower my vcore to 1.650 from 1.675. The result is stability at 200 x 11 at 7-3-3-2.5T, 100%.

One month to cure. My CPUs don't stay in there that long. :(

I guess I stick with AS3/AS2
