yes, i do have GO stepping. I've had it OC'ed to 3.2GHz for the past couple days. once or twice a day the computer will just randomly restart out of nowhere, makes me mad while i'm gaming. I tried fiddling with the vcore and nb voltage, but no settings seemed to be completely stable with 8x multiplier and 400mhz fsb. i did notice that at 3.2ghz, cpuz said my voltage was 1.28-1.3ish. i though it was fairly low considering i see 1.312 at stock fsb settings. i think my mobo's vdroop is keeping my cpu from getting enough power...but i dont know.

When you made changes, did you test for stability? Have you checked out the P5N-D thread linked 2 posts earlier?
