I did. It helped with vdroop but amazingly didn't allow for lower Vcores. I'm guessing I wasn't getting too much vdroop to begin with.

I don't get much vdroop at all on my P5E3, the load line calibration setting in the bios is quite effective, however I do get approximately 0.03v vdrop

I like to run for 8-9 hours to be 100% sure, I've had them fail at the 8.5 hour mark before.

but does it really matter at that point anymore? It's not like you are going to be playing a very intensive game for 9 hours without taking a break. (at least I hope you aren't )
