Prime95 error, worker stopped.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This is really starting to annoy me, is it because my system isnt stable???
When i start the Prime95 all 6cores complete one or two tests, then i get the error:
Fatal Error: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
Tortue test completed x tests in x minutes - 1 errors, 0 warnings.
Worker Stopped.

This would happen one by one, until i have one or two cores running that can run for ages.

Is my system unstable or is this a different error...

Your system is unstable. Could be either an issue with your memory or your CPU.

Run Prime95 SmallFFT's and see if you pass. If you get the same error, it is time to up the vcore a notch.

If you pass SmallFFT's for a few hours, then it should be either your memory or NB which is at fault.

Ok thanks, do i up the CPU voltage or NB voltage now?

Like I said on my previous post, run SmallFFT for Prime95 first. That test mainly stresses your CPU, so if you experience any similar errors on that test, it means your CPU is unstable, meaning you need a bump in vcore.

If stable on that test, it means the fault is with your memory or NB, meaning you either might need to loosen your RAM timings, or give the CPU-NB voltage a bump.
