Okay, that makes sense. I don't understand why underclocking would have any adverse effects on the lifetime of the CPU or damage it in anyway. But I agree--for stability as compared to stock, underclocking won't do anything. But it sure does help with temps sometimes!

Mem at 2.1 V 4-4-4-12, vcore 1.33 (cpu-z) or 1.45 (bios) at 2.4 GHz (200FSB x12)

Have you tried to clear the CMOS and not do anything to the BIOS? It doesn't make sense that you can't run stock speed....that's the part that's getting me.

Try clearning CMOS and just boot into windows and run orthos.

Also, try memtest and see is something up with your RAM.

OK, ran memtest for 20 minutes on tests 5 and 6 (No errors), and I'm running ATITool stress tests now. This makes me think it's not a weak PSU or bad ram.

I'm thinking the CPU is overheating; I used the stock thermal paste on the AC 64 and that stuff is crap.

Did you try test 8? My that was the only test I used because that was the only one I ever crashed. I don't know the difference between the tests, but I'm just saying from personal experience, test 8 was the one I always failed, and when that was stable, orthos became good too.

Have you tried anything else to monitor temps? I remember Motherboard Monitor, or something along those lines, was popular before. A CPU overheat looks a lot like a failing PSU (again, personal experience). Just try to find a way to get accurate temps. Have you checked BIOS temps?
