I finally got my Athlon 2600+ to do a 11x200MHz. POST recognised this as a
3200+!!! Yipeeeeeeeee!!!

But during booting Windows XP stage it would go blank and reboot.

I checked the temp and it was way over 50C...reached about 62C then it when
unstable. My idle temp is 38C so over 50C is absolutely %£$"%% "^£^"£%£.

I'm using a stock fan and I know I need a better fan. Which one should I
consider?

Thanks! :)

Hmmm.... Much left to ones own intepretations of the best here. If you
just want something that's good, quiet and cheap, I'd say the TR2-M1 for
about $10. If you are looking for extreme air cooling, I'd probably say a
Thermalright with a large (92mm) powerful fan. Cost maybe about $60.

I basically want something that is well balanced between sound and
performance. I guess I will go for an 80mm one with copper base. A 92mm
would is too big and large fans have bigger dead-zones I heard :S

The "bigger dead-zones" would be because of the larger fan motors. The thing is
I'm sure the
increased CFM's would more than make up for this. Also the top-peforming 92mm
fans have a sort of manifold which twists/directs the air towards the center.
If you've ever felt the output from a Vantec Tornado 92mm you'd know these
"dead-zones" don't exist.
