Default Error message during torture test

I built a system using Intel Quad 9550 on an Asus MB. I have 1GB X 4 of Crucial Ballistics (1066 MHz) in the four memory channels. When I perform the Blend torture test, I get some cores that are failing the test within couple of minutes. It is not always the same core that fails. The CPU temp went up to about 46C. Here's what happened:

1) First test: Almost immediately, cores 3 and 4 failed with an error, but no description of the reason was given.

2) Second test: Within a minute into the test, core 1 failed with the fatal error message "Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4"

3) Third test: Core 1 failed with the same fatal error as above, and core 2 failed due to illegal sumout.

4) Fourth test: All cores have completed 4 tests without any failures, but then core 3 failed with the rounding error. The CPU temp is hovering around 53C-55C.

What's going on?

Thanks for your input.
