i think this is the case for me too. When i overclock too far games ''stop responding'' the system doesn't hang or turn off it just stops responding. Ive noticed the same thing in prime 95 too. anyone know why this is? (btw im using vista, maybe thats it)

i can recommend clearing the cmos too, they make it so easy to do nowadays there is little reason not to.
