Prime95 v.25.5 FATAL ERROR
Hi, I'm new to the this and I'm using the program to stress test my machine for ocing purposes

I downloaded Prime95 25.5 for 64 windows

I went into Test > Worker threads and changed the Priority from 1 to 10

then I ran a torture test and received this when choosing In-Place large FFTs and blend

[Wed Mar 05 15:13:23 2008]
FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 4, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.

when I run small FFTs, it works

my specs are as the follows without overclocking

vista 64 bit ultimate
asus p5k deluxe wifi ap
4x2 Gskill pc2-8000 5-5-5-15

Can anyone explain that error to me? I'm running Prime95 off my desktop and I couldn't find this stress.txt file it directs me to

the only thing I can think of is that I'm running the RAM at 1066 through my BIOS?

any help would be greatly appreciated!

First of all, download the latest beta version of Prime95 ([URL=""]25.6[/URL]).
Also please explain why do you want to change the priority from 1 to 10.
If 25.6 also fails on your PC, then download the latest official release (24.14) and put it into 2 different directories. In each directory set CPU affinity to different core. Run both executables choosing one of the following scenarios:[LIST=1][*]small FFT test on both of them[*]small FFT test on one and large FFT on another one[*]small FFT test on one and blend test on another one (if you encounter an error here it would most likely be related to RAM or chipset)[*]large FFT test on both of them (error may be related to RAM or chipset, or CPU cooling)[/LIST]BTW: did you overclocked your PC? If yes, then reported errors simply mean that your machine is not "prime-stable" and you have to experiment with your settings (there is no easy answer then).
BTW2: what are your voltages (Vcore, Vram, etc.) in BIOS and under windows (especially under load) + what PSU do you have?
BTW3: what are your temperatures in idle and during stress?
