When I run Prime 95 I get a fatal error....it says rounding was .5ms but is supposed to be under .4ms.....is this serious? and how do I fix it

when you get an error like that that in prime, it means your cpu's calculations were wrong, which is the result of an unstable o/c...drop down a notch on your speed,or up your voltage a notch, and run it again...keep doing this until you get no more errors, and you'll have a stable o/c...
CPU unstability could also be caused by a couple of other things...high temps, bad PSU, etc...not just too high of an FSB or undervoltage, as my previous made it sound...check all these factors, one at a time, until you pinpoint the problem...
