Default Failing Torture Test..

Okay here's the deal. I have three computers, one of which can accually pass the torture test. The other two I cant get to pass. I need to know what could be causing this and why (possibly).
Here's the two that wont pass it.

Computer 1:
P4 2.4GHz 800Mhz FSB
PC Chips M952 MB
512 Samsung DDR3200

Computer 2:
P4 2.8GHz 800MHz FSB
PC Chips M952 MB
512 Samsung DDR3200
Dual 80 G SATA Raid 0 HDDs

The one that does pass it looks like this:

Computer 3:
P4 2.0GHz 400MHz FSB
PC Chips MB (dun member part #)
512 DDR 2700

I have tried using the 'good' RAM in both the other computers so we can rule that out, unless the speed (400MHz vs 333MHz) makes a difference.

I am using Prime 95 v24.8.1 on default settings and doing the combo torture test.

The CPU temps get no higher than ~45C on both boards and the voltages appear to be very stable. Here is what Prime says to me.

Test 1, 4000 Lucas-Lehmer iterations of M19922945 using 1024K FFT length.
FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
Same thing on both. whats the deal?

Thanks in advance. :)
