Hey guys!

Okay guys my problem is that, I am getting the exact same 'fatal' error everytime i use prime95, and it is always the same core which is failing.

The error reads: "FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4"

What on earth does that mean? I have tried upping the vcore, upping the VTT FSB and the voltage on the NB, with no success what so ever. And the heat is not the problem since my water cooling setup keeps the temps down.

OC: FSB: 1400 (350) and the multiplier is on 10 = 3.5 GHZ. I have not touched the RAM, they are at stock speeds (800 MHZ), with a 1.8 voltage.

Help is greatly appreciated!

Never mind, problem solved - for now... Downloaded and ran the 32bit version of Prime95 instead of the 64bit version, and it seems like it is working.

How long should I run Prime95 before calling it stable?

FSB 400 with a multiplier of 10 is NOT 3.5ghz ... its 4ghz
check that up and see if your not actually running 4ghz (unlikely) but worth checking

to be 100 percent stable, 24 hours.

Is that actually necessary? I mean how likely is it to see a failure after a few hours?

Anyway, do you guys think it would be realistic for me to hit 4 GHZ, with my current setup? If not, what about 3.8, 3.7 and 3.6 etc. I do not think that heat would be the problem, but i might be wrong about that, who knows.

dont run 24hrs ... its unnecessary .. its like running IBT for 4 hours
6-8 hours tops will do ... i run it 4 hours before declaring it stable
