Default prime 95

hi everyone,
i run prime 95 and get the following message:
fatal error: rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
can anyone tell me what this means, and perhaps how to fix it?
it happens everytime about 9 minutes into the test, during test 3.
i ran another stability program (cpu stability test 6.0), suggested by the place where i downloaded p95 and it ran for 15 hours, no errors.

cpu idle at 26c, 54c 100% usage. 1.5v (i could probably lower this to like 1.375v...raised it to see if that would fix error), stock cooling with good airflow through my case.

any ideas, thoughts?

thanks!

i also have a question posted about ram, if you'd like to help.

heh, i found it....maybe

took it down to 2.6 (236x11) ht mult 4x., which put my ht link at 947...i don't think that's a big deal?
set the voltage at 1.375 passing every test so far
hopefully i set me ram up right in the bios...
