If it's not Prime95 stable than it's not fully stable. It will result in program crashes/problems eventually. You could try increaseing cpu voltage to see if it becomes stable.

Increase the voltage to 1.35 and see if that helps =)

In ACC, set the other cores to "0", give the weaker 4th core a "+2" or something like that to help boost its performance. You should also boost voltage slightly.
