    i have a Pentium 100x5.5 processor, i overclock it to 133x5.5, everything works fine.

    but sometime later, when i get into windows, the system will restart itself, i wonder why? but since it boots OK everytime, does that mean to overclocking is successful?

    what can be done? does increasing cpu voltage helps? what sort of voltage should i use?

    any help to chriscckk@hotvoice.com appreciate

    Here is what I think is happening.... Your cpu is over clocked to much or is getting too hot and is causing a system fault error. XP is setup to re-boot on that error.

    Try this and see if you get any clues..... This will let you get a blue screen of death and read the error......



    Modify auto-reboot setting

    Since Microsoft has worked so hard to make this version "the most stable ever," then this tweak is not needed. However, I am fairly sure that they have not perfected millions of lines of code in less than a year. Below you will discover how to turn the auto reboot feature on and off. This allows your computer to instantly reboot upon a system fault. (The blue screen)

    Start Regedit.

    Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Control > CrashControl
    Select AutoReboot from the list on the right.
    Right on it and select Modify.
    Change the value to 0 to disable and 1 to enable.
    Reboot your computer

    :cool:

    if ya wanna be safe, skip regedit, just goto your control panel, system, advanced, then startup and recovery, then uncheck the automatic restart box :)

    You don't want to add more core voltage... Adding more will make the CPU more stable at higher speeds but also adds MORE heat...

    Turn down the FSB until you get 100% stable... This takes days not hours to determine...

    Once you get stable, add the biggest, loudest, fastest fan you can find... Then work your way up slow...

    Also try using Motherboard monitor and maybe CoolMon to measure your temps...
