Run Intel Burn Test for at least 15 cycles and check if it's stable.

My i5 is running at 3.8GHz with 1.4V on the CPU and 1.36875 on the IMC. Can't find a way to low down the voltage. What's your bios settings?

70C with LinX is not bad, but I would run it for 30min. to an hour to make sure it's stable.
Keep your eyes on your temps and don't let it go over 80C (I doubt if you'll get that high).
What heatsink are you using?

If you're running 3.7GHz at 1.3V that's great!
I'm still using the stock bios version, I'll upgrade it to see if I can get better results.
I'll post my bios settings tomorrow.

You want to really test its stability. fold.

Seriously, Folding is the ultimate test for true stability. You may run all the other tests and be fine, but Folding will find out if there is any instability in it or not.
