With this the system performs marvelously in Prime95's small FTT stress test. But when I try to run a prime95 Blend test, it only
lasts about 3 minutes until encountering a fatal error typically on thread 2 or 1. The error reads "fatal error rounding was .5,
expected less than .4"

Yea ram is probably the culprit. You could try running memtest for a few hours to verify that though. Also, 1hr is not nearly long enough for a final say on whether your system is stable or not. You need to go for at least 6-8. Preferably get a 24hr test in there as well.
