I know this is a really dumb question, but over the forums it is so hard to help overclock compared to being there in person, but when you bump up the QPI in E-leet you are hitting apply before you run Intel Burn test correct? lol

Ok It finished that test.
 
Can i test it at 200 QPI instead of 199?
200 (4.2Ghz) is the most i can go as far as warranty is concerned.

ok, now you need to re-boot, then go into the bios, and raise the  overclock to 199 and F-10 get back into windows and run the Intel Burn test like before, but 20 passes, if all goes well, then a minimum of 12 hours of Prime95

yep, if you pass the tests then you can call it done... there is a bunch more stuff we can do, but nothing that will make a noticable gain.
run Prime 95 Blend test

Just Starting the Intel Burn Test, 20 Times. My Room is like 74F Today.
My Room Was 80F Yesterday. Temps Will Be Lower.
 
Do i have to change any of the settings on the Blend Test on  Prime95.to make it run 12 hours?
 
or
 
Do i just click it just as it is and run it?

I was reading this one post about his sound card being in the wrong slot. Mine looks like it is in the same spot as his was. I have a picture of it on the 1st page on the bottom. Can you check it out real quick?
