Well all I know is that it is the High Precision Event Timer, but don't know what to set it at.

If you use Vista set it to 1 (on) if you do not use Vista set it to 0 (off)

I THINK HPET x64 was responsible for crashing my overclock (works fine when hpet is x86)

However I have no clue what it does and any further OC'ing errors i'm disabling it (see my sig for link to the thread)
