Although my personal parenting style doesn't involve CIO, I believe different things work for different people. That being said, my pedi recommended soothing after 5 straight minutes of hard crying (which is a really long time when the baby is crying... I can usually only stand 45 seconds which feels like 5 minutes)!

I have a 3 month old who sometimes resists sleep - when she does this, I simulate her nighttime sleep situation. I also recommend the happiest baby on the block and the 5 s's - swaying, shushing, swaddling, sucking, and side lying.
