  1. started prime 95 and right away workers 1 & 4 quit with "hardware failure detected" the others workers 2 & 3 are still going as I am typeing this. Could someone explain what workers are and why only 2 of them quit?

    actual error was "FATAL ERROR: rounding was 0.5, expected less then 0.4"

    Actually if one quits nothing on the computer has quit but something needs more juice (voltage).

    my best guess is u need to check it out u're self and the best way to do that is by increasing 1 thing at a time until u find what u're board and processor needs. let me tell u, u can burn things up real fast by giving it too much voltage. even increasing by a little makes the life shorter. I am running a ASUS board that eats mem by the month and all I have increased is the northbridge.
