Fixed the 2nd pc by replacing the ram, but i've still got ongoing issues with my main machine
It must be a faulty CPU? The CPU itself is an Athlon 2600+ thoroughbred chip and i've had this problem ever since I bought it
That being, when set to 200mhz (2600+) it'll continually reboot randomly or freeze up (Temperature IS OK)
If I set it to a 2000+ chip (1.6ghz) it never does it
Think it could be the chip?

Sounds like faulty power still, lowering fsb should use less power. Try using the PSU from your 2nd pc?
