" If you're an overclocker, you are probably trying to squeeze your system for every drop of performance and stability, often the 5v rails on our motherboards drop way below the critical voltage and our systems become sick. The Overclockability of my Athlon XP was being hampered by stability issues, after long periods of time it would cease to function and this was not heat related. I eventually realized that my 5v Rail on my motherboard was way too low, about 4.2v on my EPOX 8KTA3+pro.
