Default Prime 95 Error

I'm trying to overclock my CPU, and when I'm running Prime95 I keep on getting the following error on one of my cores:

FATAL ERROR: Roudning was 0.5, expected less than 0.4. Hardware failure detected.

Does this mean I'm not giving enough voltage to my cpu, or my multiplier is too high? On my previous test, my voltage was at 1.100, my multiplier was at 41 and I received that error. I decided to increase my voltage to 1.105 and leave my multiplier at 41, which still produced that error. Am I doing something incorrect? The CPU is the only component I have overclocked on my system.

ASRock Z77 Extreme4
CM Hyper Evo 212
Patriot Viper 4x4GB

Currently running at:
Voltage: 1.105
Multiplier: 41
