Geek thread: Error in prime95 unclocked CPU - normal?

I get error on 5 out of 6 workers (cpu cores?). The workers stops at different test, one worker did 0 tests wile #6 still runs and has been running for 20 mins.

It says
"Torture Test completed 2 tests in 3 minutes - 1 errors, 0 warnings"
Worker stopped.

The system is very new, only parts from my old rig is half of the ram and the hdd's.

I got an amd 1090t, corsair xms3 1600mhz cl9 ddr3 on a sabertooth 990fx. The memory modules are bought in 2 separate kits if that matters. Why could I be getting these errors? Bad memory? Want to OC my cpu, but I don't know if I dare when I alredy get errors at stock mhz. Haven't done any cpu changes in bios, voltage seems to go from 1.3something to 1,452V by deafult.

Also my old motherboard (budget am3 msi 770-c45) broke when I ran prime95 OC'd at 3,5ghz. It probably wasn't made for the load of that cpu.

If anyone can answer I'm thankful!

Did some more research.

My ram was running in 1600mhz (as they are made for). But the voltage was maybe too high, the motherboard gave them 1.653v in auto. That's 0.003 too much for an amd processor should that really matter? And I lowered the clock from 1600 to 1333. It seems stable now and there should only be a few % loss in performance.
