Unstable reboot

  1. Running a 2500XP+ Athlon on an MSI K7N2 Delta 2 platinum
    2 sticks of 512mb kingston pc3200 DDR4000 memory
    1 stick of 512mb crucial pc 3200 DDR400 memory

    Been running the FSB memory a 202 mghz for a long while.
    Memory voltage at .270

    Last night it started to reboot over and over.
    I had to notch down the FSB to 200 to get it to be stable.

    I am curious why this would happen.

    increasing the memory voltage to .275 had no effect.
    I returned it back to .270.

    The computer is running fine now, but I am curious why that would happen all of a sudden when it ran fine for 2 months.

    Maybe you've found the edge. After 2 months something has tipped the balance - maybe temp increased by a degree or two.

    possible. I noticed it happened after I turned off the AC last night.
