Hey guys, when i run prime95 I get an error that reads:

FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file

this message appears on all 4 cores. I am having problems with crashes and freezes, and I think my problem might be the CPU. I have an AMD Phenom II x4 95 black edition. I am pretty sure its not a driver issue, and my memory is passing the windows memory diagnostic and memtest86. Please Help!

it sounds like your voltages isn't high enough. What does cpuz and the bios show as compared to the spec for cpu and memory?
