Has anybody noticed stability differences between the 2 Operating Systems? I have, I come to notice that you can get more stable Overclocks on 32-bit XP Pro vs. x64 XP Pro, and I aint quite sure why. Has anybody else noticed the same? Sorry for lack of detailed info, as there's really too much to post :?.

You made a mistake in the title of your thread; it should be x32 Windows. I wish I could answer your question, but I can't, for two reasons:

1) My pentium 4 is 32-bit; I can't run x64

2) I'm using a shitty proprietary HP motherboard; no CPU overclocking for me :( .

Well I've noticed it before; my friend loses 300MHz using XP 64-bit vs. 32. I've found the perfect speed for both operating systems. :)

Or maybe it's late, you're tired, and you gotta get some sleep. I know I do.

I was instaled x64 and there is difference.
Xp64 becomes mor unstable then x86.(due overclocking vienice 3000+,epox)
Dont know why.
X64 is pain in the assss.(drivers an the rest)
I uninstaled it and put x86 back:) 

And its not x32,its x86!
I was thinking that before too.
