at FSB1600 did you experience shut down problem at 1.4V? (not lock up or reboot) Is like all in sudden the comp dead, sometimes it won't even boot up for 1-2mins.

will 1.5V too much to handle? is in the red color and I am afraid.

Yes I did. I could not pass prime95 until I upped my SPP voltage. It's one tick in the red, I know, but I also have a great spot fan cooling it. The temp in speedfan gets up to 42 - 45, but I have no idea if that's right. In any case, it seems cool and stable now.

Whoa, wait, no I was talking about lock ups. Sudden death shutdown is usually a Power Supply short.
