Sensitive CPU:XP 2700+ Thoroughbred


A month agao I installed a new mobo(EPOX EP-8VTAI) and CPU(XP 2700+ Thoroughbred).

That CPU says NewEgg runs at 2.1GHz. I can run it at 2.3Ghz. Now I run it at 1.4Ghz.

I would label it "sensitive", meaning, at certain moments, but I can't say exactly when, I get strange kernel oopses.

The CPU runs hot, I guess. The old one, AMD Athlon Thunderbird at 850MHz. never had a problem like that and ran max 47C. This one runs about 10C hotter.

E.g. yesterday on installing a new Sarge system, kernel oops occurred during compilation and thereafter in apt-get. Temperature was 46C, it was 30C in the room.

Today: CPU temperature was 40C, same process: no problems.

Any similar experiences?
