Question Prime 95 help

Hi i have overclocked my cpu up to 2.65Ghz and am trying to run a torture test on prime 95 to test if it is stable. I have chosen Blend setting and started it but after just over a minute a message came up saying 'FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4

What does this mean?

here is what it means: If your system is unstable, it will show something like this:
FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.

so its unstable. time to UC!

blend isn't the best option to test cpu stability either. i use "in place large FFT's". are you running one instance on each core?
