Is that 3 gig (unlikely) or XP 3000? XP 3000 is near the top end for the Barton processors so don't expect to get too much more speed out of it. Are you changing the multiplier or the FSB. If you're raising the FSB with memory at 400mhz the memory may be quitting.

If it worked witht he same settings a few months back check the CPU HSF, RAM, Chipset for dust build. If it is dusty get soem electronics "duster" and blow them clean. I recommend you do this in the gaarge or outside. That **** is nasty when inhaled. The 50-52 C is kinda high for a system at idle. Mid 40''s would be better.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
