Default What happens when Prime95 fails?

I'm testing my A64 3200+ Winchester + Asus A8V Deluxe 2.0 with 2x 1 gb CL3 3-3-8 PC3200 Kingston ValueRam.

I keep hearing about Prime95 and how everyone uses it to stress-test their overclocked environment.

So far I'm running at 240 MHz FSB (2.4 GHz) at stock voltage and CPU-Z reports the ram running at 2.5-2-2-5 which to me as an overlocking n00b, is way out of spec! I dare not push it any further sice I'm hitting 48C on the stock heatsink.

I've been running Prime95 on and off for a few hours here and there for the past three days and it's going over these iterations of primality tests. What exactly am I supposed to see if it doesn't like something going on?
