    Use Memtest as well. OCCT does a decent job of loading the CPU, memory and stressing the MCH as well.

    You shouldn't have any issues with Prime with a stock 4770k on stock heatsink. These chips are rated to throttle nicely at 100C, and I think are rated for 115-120C iirc. So you'll be fine.

    yep, better off putting memtest on a bootable usb and letting it do 2+ passes. The 2nd takes an hour.
