    Overheating ?????

    My PC below, sometimes starts up and loads XP, then it just shuts down and a alarm sounds

    is this because the mobo has something to shut down if its over heating ?????

    ABIT NF7-S V2.0 Mobo
    XP1700 OEM Thoroughbred cores JIUHB DUT3C O/C'ed 2080mhz from 12.5x166

    sounds like a ram issue if its beeping.

    try using just one, swapping etc, see if one died.
    if not check ur sink is seated right m8.

    one way to find out would be to reset the cmos, ok so your 1700+ would go back to stock speeds but at least you could see if it was an overheating issue. (reset the cmos on the mobo [see manual] then leave the PC off for 10 mins, then try again)

    this is a tricky 1, the delete key stopped working as i said, i have just starting using a new KVM switch, so i unplgged the stuff, plugged them straight into the PC, and it started ok, went to the menu, turned down the speeds a little, and all seems ok

    so i dont have a scooby what was wrong

    I'd keep an eye on the CPU temps. You may need better vent/air flow in your case but I'd also suggest checking that the compound is very thinly applied around the core area. Also be sure your fan is high enough as the Xdream is adjustable.

    If you check the BIOS it allows you to select the temps to issue a warning and also to shut the PC down, be sure these aren't too low. Onboard sensors are pretty cheap and approximate, use them more as a guide as to what temps your CPU quits at and be sure your CPU can handle the speeds. If it isn't temp related (60'C is about the quitting point) then you may simply need more voltage. XP1700+ often come with a measly 1.50v which is enough to keep temps low but will inhibit o/c'ing ... 1.65v is more of where the 9 layer 0.13mu CPU should be but take gradual steps both fo rincreasing CPU speed AND for upping the voltage.

    I had this with MBM5 1st time i ran it....
    I used the wrong sensors that read out max temps

    whenever MBM started I got the alarm followed by a shutdown

    Have you got any monitoring software installed? If so it might be that whats causing your problems....
