I just raised my FSB from 370 -> 389(3.5GHz). I decided to run two instances of prime 95 for each core. One of them ran flawlessly and kept going on. The other ran for 7 minutes and ended. It says

FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
Torture Test ran 7 minutes - 1 errors, 0 warnings.
Execution halted.

What does it mean when there is an error?

means that your processor calculated the number wrong compared to what Prime95 has.

not OC as far. that means your CPU isn't stable. so try to make it more stable, or back down on the FSB.

The error is your CPU doing the wrong number (Somthing like that). This means if your playing a game or something that uses the CPU A Error will happen making the hole system freez or just restart. Add more voltage or rase the FSB down

The P5 series mobo's don't like the FSB between 350-395ish. Try going straight to 400FSB with a 9x multi.

I had similar issues

Joeking78. I am trying to achieve exactly what you have with the E6600? My BIOS settings have the memory at like 1.42 but Everest and CPU-z reads it at 1.36-37.

My idle temps are 52C and ORTHOS load is 75C!!!! Is this what you have?

My VID is 1.225.

If I were you I would stop overclocking immediately, 75C is way too high!!
You should have 60C load MAX.
I bet if you stress it with TAT now your temps would even go over 80C


Just stop overclocking now if you plan on using your cpu for more than 1 year.
